Just a month now until twice upon a time. And I am so so so scared clara won’t actually show up. They deserve to have a proper goodbye. They are meant to meet again. And I don’t just mean the doctor and her . They’ll probably meet again someday. But I mean 12 and her because say what you want. But their relationship was special. Something between them changed when he turned into 12. They developed and it became a mature relationship a real one. One of those who can not be broken by anything.
They deserve to have their little goodbye. 12 deserves to remember. Not as any other incarnation. 12 deserves this he’s been through a lot of shit just as clara did
On the streets of Victorian London, a grieving Doctor encounters killer snowmen and an impossible girl…
Warning: Spoilers Sweetie
Trust Moffat to turn the thing children wish for every Christmas into a monster.
If you want us to take a load of swirling snowflakes seriously as a villain you really do need to get some like Sir Ian McKellen to provide the voice.
And here’s Richard E. Grant, the other Ninth Doctor who is also the other Tenth Doctor and is currently playing a doctor and once made a film with the Eighth Doctor. The Who is strong with this one.
Since ‘The Abominable Snowmen’ and ‘The Web of Fear’ are two of my favourite stories, I was very happy to see Moffat bring back the Great Intelligence, but do wish he had made room for a Yeti or two.
“I said I’d feed you. I didn’t say who to.” Be honest, Simeon, you practiced that line all day, didn’t you?
Hello, Clara: Victorian Special Edition.
My heart always breaks a little when I see him wearing Amy’s glasses.
Bowties no longer seem to be cool.
“Doctor? Doctor Who?”
New credits with added Doctor face. I know they didn’t last long, but I preferred these credits to previous one.
Who are you calling fatuous, Simeon? Punch him, Jenny.
“I resent your implication of impropriety. We are married.”
“I think winter is coming.” Wrong show, Simeon.
“I suggest a full frontal assault with automated laser monkeys, scalpel mines and acid.” Love Strax.
In a way the Doctor is taking Amy’s advice. He isn’t travelling alone because he isn’t travelling at all.
He’s whistling ‘Silent Night’, which really should’ve been the title of his final story.
This is so typical of the Doctor. He couldn’t just find a nice, big, empty house to be miserable in. He had to go and park the TARDIS on a cloud and have an invisible staircase put in.
Clara walking on the clouds may just be the single most magical moment in Doctor Who history.
Clara was originally meant to stay Victorian. Did they change it so Jenna wouldn’t have to be a fake cockney all the time and could use her normal accent?
Typical Victorian repressed male. Absolutely useless when it comes to women and children.
Strax looks so adorable in his little butler’s uniform.
“Truth is singular. Lies are words, words, words.”
“Kindness.” The core ideal of this entire era.
“The Doctor doesn’t help people. Not anyone, not ever. He stands above this world and doesn’t interfere in the affairs of its inhabitants. He is not your salvation, nor your protector. Do you understand what I am saying to you?” “Words.” Jenny really does loves it when people get the better of her wife.
“Pond.” *cries into already soggy pillow*
This is the closest we will ever get to a Doctor Who/Sherlock crossover.
“Shut up, I’m making deductions.”
If you are going to cosplay, Doctor, expect a certain level of mockery.
The CGI for the ice governess is rather good. The dark days of ‘The Almost People’ seem so far away.
“Doctor Who?” Is this episode trying to break a record or something?
Bowties are cool again.
“Good evening. I’m a Lizard Woman from the Dawn of Time, and this is my wife.” This is the future liberals want. Except it’s the past.
“You have a gentleman friend?” Priorities, Captain.
Victorian Clara was a lot more flirtatious than regular Clara.
On the subject of the Doctor and Clara, I ship it, but not as passionately as I ship the Doctor and River or Amy and Rory. And I don’t really start shipping it until he regenerates into Twelve.
“Taller on the inside.” Shouldn’t that be the other way round? If it’s taller on the inside it would make the ascent longer not shorter.
I almost leap out of chair and cheered when this happened. For the first time in the show’s history we went from the outside to the inside of the TARDIS in one shot.
New TARDIS, built because they moved studios and it was cheaper than moving the old one and the BBC do love to save money. I like this set, it is my favourite TARDIS interior after Eight’s, but only after it was given a redress for Twelve. This is also the first TARDIS interior of NuWho that is a complete 360 set. The previous two both had walls missing limiting the number of the angles you could shoot from.
“It’s smaller on the outside.” “Okay, that is a first.” He’s so disappointed, he likes it when they say the other thing.
“I never know why. I only know who.”
The Doctor has been out of the game too long, he’s usually a lot better of catching people when the fall.
I’ve said it before, but it worthy repeating, I adore the Doctor and Vastra’s friendship and would love it if we got to see her with Thirteen. Hell, I just want every character to meet Thirteen.
He fixes his bowtie and ‘I am the Doctor’ starts playing. Oooh, I’ve got chills. God, I miss this. As pumped as I am for Thirteen, I don’t think any future Doctor is going to make me as giddy as Eleven did.
“A map of the London Underground, 1967. Key strategic weakness in metropolitan living, if you ask me, but then I have never liked a tunnel.” Most people make trouble for their future selves. The Doctor makes trouble for his past selves.
“Winter is coming” Still the wrong show, Simeon.
“Run. Run, you clever boy. And remember.”
RIP Clara Oswin Oswald.
Second time in the space of two episodes where one of the Doctor’s companion’s has walked past their own grave.
