Re: The Snowmen Grading and Discussion Thread

I didn't mind The Runaway Bride (Donna's presence is always welcome), and I vaguely remember thinking A Christmas Carol was okay. The rest made little or no (positive) impression.

As for Clara Oswin, hmm, looks interesting. But the Doctor is letting her kiss him! And him a married man!
Eh, that doesn't matter. River apparently doesn't exist when she isn't in an episode, so the Doctor can pretty much do what he likes the rest of the time.

(That's annoyed me for ages. This episode merely provided yet another instance.)

They have an "arrangement" I'm sure. What with the potential years, decades, centuries, whathaveyou, between meetings.

The villains were rather weak but everything else was really well done. Jenna-Louise Coleman is all kinds of awesome. She's gorgeous and I like how she moves like she's having such a good time and has nice facial expressions. Very good acting there. She and Matt Smith have nice chemistry together. i can't wait to find out what the deal with clara is.

I was being facetious, guys. I was really quite obviously being facetious.

On topic, I thought this was a wonderful episode, and I was geared up for the usual forgettably dull affair. Best christmas special since Runaway Bride.

Why isn't River his permanent companion at this point? They're married.

I rewatched the Ruaway Bride on Christmas Eve, it's still one of the best Christmas Specials. I liked that this episode had nothing to do with Christmas.

You're not married, are you?

She also said the TARDIS is big enough for only one psychopath in "The Angels Take Manhattan" when the Doctor asked her to stay.

River may have gone off to the Library, thus adding to the Doctor's desire to hide out.

Doubt it - I suspect River won't do that until Moffat's final episode as showrunner

No, it'll have to be before his final episode. If Trenzalor is where 11 falls (regens into 12), that will be his final episode (unless he's staying for 12)

Doesn't one of the "Night and the Doctor" shorts feature, as one of the many Rivers and many Doctors we see, the River right before the Library?

Ah yes, it's in episode four that the Doctor and River are on their way to the Singing Towers of Darillium, which for River came immediately before "Silence in the Library."

Huh, I assumed River would know more Doctors than just 10 and 11. Not expecting her to head to the library any time soon.

With time travelers, though, who is to say she hasn't had adventures with future Doctors, in the same way that Sexy has dozens of console rooms the Doctor hasn't created yet?
