• Christmas 2011:the BBC killed Sherlock (sort of)
  • Christmas 2012:the BBC killed Arthur
  • Christmas 2013:the BBC killed the 11th Doctor
  • Conclusion:the BBC is that cat that lives in your backyard that keeps bringing you dead things as presents hoping to get you to like them.

I hope that in series 8, there’s a moment when Clara goes “but I’m the impossible girl.
