    I like the look of the snowmen, though my expectations for the episode are at rock bottom. And why are all Moffat's Christmas episode titles ripped off other things? At least he's not given it exactly the same title like A Christmas Carol, but it's still close.

    So I'm guessing salt is not going to work.

    What do you mean? "The Snowmen" sounds like a pretty standard Doctor Who "named after the villains" story title, like "The Daleks," "The Krotons," "The Ice Warriors," "The Daemons," etc. What are you saying it's "close" to?

    The Snowman, a popular British Christmas story which Moffat has admitted is his inspiration for this Christmas special.

    Well we've seen the Snowmen, and they don't look much like the Snowman, do they?

    Yes, in that way it is a small step forward from Michael Gambon's Scrooge clone.

    BBC Press Office now has a time: BBC1, 25th December, 5.15pm (to 6.15pm). Guess they're centreing the schedule round ensuring Call the Midwife (7.30pm, with Eastenders following) beats Downton Abbey.

    Ouch! Forgotten already? You were just down ther
    I'll take Downton Abbey over Call the Midwife any day. (I hate episodes of regular TV shows that feature childbirth scenes. Why would I want to watch an entire series of this...

    ...but without the joys of Worf in it?)
