Is there a "Christmas Carol" analogy with Clara?

Future
Past

and now present.


10 bucks says The Doctor will make all Clara's come back alive and meet

internet fanboys explode as THREE Jenna's interact.

The Doctor says Strax was resurrected by "a friend." Who was this friend? I'm guessing Vastra or Jenny, otherwise why else does Strax choose to be their butler?
This is bugging the crap out of me. The explanation was so vague; I hope we learn more about how Strax returned from the dead...did Rory do it?
Supposedly it's going to be addressed in a DVD bonus scene.
I'm actually very glad its Vastra & Co. after AGMGTW. I think it opens up more story options that having the Doctor meeting them before Strax "died", earlier in their timelines.

Maybe River still had some regeneration energy for Strax?

And Strax probably doesn't think of himself as their butler. They likely give him the idea he's a mercenary or something, just to keep his interest. "She said to give you a box of grenades".


Also, Richard E. Grant isn't quite "lick the mirror handsome" anymore, is he?

Re: The Snowmen Grading and Discussion Thread

Loved it, absolutely loved every second (with the possible exception of all the Doctor Who?s.)

Great new title music and fab titles, just wonderful, and we get his face in them, yay!! Love the new Tardis console (although am I alone in finding the spinning rings above the time rotor somewhat reminiscent of the Event Horizon's engine?)

Loved that Grant reined himself in and made Simeon quite creepy, and whilst it was a bit of a "Love conquers all" ending, it made more sense than usual given the salt/snow combo.

Loved the tie in to the 2nd Doctor, and Vastra Jenny and especially Strax really need a spin off show. Strax stole every scene he was in, so many hilarious lines

clara...hmm. I liked her, liked her a lot, but oddly I think I prefered her as Oswin, so we'll just have to see what present day Clara is like. And yes she is gorgeous but...well personally I'm a little in love with Jenny, such a shame I'm not her type

I should point out that smith was great, but really that goes without saying.

One major problem of course...they hired the wrong Silent witness cast member!!

Absolutely rancid television. Possible candidate for worst Who ever, though that's a field growing more crowded by the year.
Is your criteria for worst episode based on how recent it is? Even if you don't like any new Who episodes, you'd have to concede that there are worse episodes than that one.

So glad he's the sole entry on my ignore list. Keeps my blood pressure down.

First rule of your ignore list: don't talk about your ignore list.

For whatever reason, it's a warnable offense around here (albeit one that's infrequently enforced).

I know, it just doesn't make any sense to me.

Did not know about that rule. Ah well, too late.

I believe it's considered trolling, in that it's perceived as an attempt to incite a reaction from the blocked party.

I don't think it's much of a problem. I'm sure some members are on many people's ignore list.

Ah, alright. Well, I can understand that, except of course that putting someone on your ignore list usually means that you don't want to interact with them at all, so why would you want to incite any reaction? But hey, those are the rules, who am I to disagree?

I didn't know that either if it helps!

I've had a couple of people on ignore, in the end both came off it, just because I found it more annoying not knowing what they were saying

I didn't even know this forum had an Ignore List option. I guess I'm just such an easy-going guy.
