The rumors coming out of the BBC studio are that they built many more TARDIS rooms and halls as part of the new set. This would make sense, given the title of an upcoming episode:

Yup. The Doctor's getting all mushy again.

I'm not sure if my laptop can handle having her as it's wallpaper!

Is that a katana that Lizard-Woman is using?

Vastra's lips keep going from pink to green, back to pink.


Why do I get the feeling Clara is going to be very complicated?

Not bad, not bad. I was hoping we'd find out who just who Coleman's character was, but I guess we'll have to wait until sometime in 2013.

I think the modern day (YARRRR MOFFAT I WANTED A VICTORIAN COMPANION!) Clara is the "original" and that she'll get involved in some weird event that sends her consciousness throughout time and space.

Amusingly, this reminds me of the Cwejen.

I would love a Victorian era spin off. As for the special itself I was absorbed the entire time even with the horrendous commercial break positioning on BBCA. Strax is the breakout character of the year.

Thank you! BBCA's commercial breaks were truly awful. They usually aren't that bad at all. It reminded me of the days when Who was on Skiffy.

Re: The Snowmen Grading and Discussion Thread

I gave it a Very Good. It was strong for the most part, it had a weak resolution, and an intriguing twist leading into next season. I'm looking forward to the mystery of Clara. The current writers want an explanation for why a Companion was chosen. The last "normal" companion without any reason besides "because" was Martha. While I generally think that's a pretty good reason, the mystery intrigues me so I'm fine with waiting this one out for the explanation. Throughout, the magic of the Doctor was present, so I liked that. I also enjoyed the "shocking Victorian sensibility" gags. The idea of the snow just being a mirror worked decently well. Really, it was just the resolution that fell flat (the fakeout resolution would have been better, imo), although it does follow the rules of the episode.

Following this thread, I take it that the enemy is an old, returning enemy? I wonder if that would have changed the episode at all for me. But, even not knowing that, I appreciated the episode. Quite a fun Christmas episode.

I was reminded of Scaroth the Jagaroth in "The City of Death".

BTW, when I first saw those cylinders with the Gallifreyan symbols in that "leaked" photo about the new console, I thought, "hmm...merry-go-round." Then I saw them rotate in the actual episode. "Oy, definitely a merry-go-round." I half expected to hear a carnival organ.

Sincerely,

Bill
