So I saw the Christmas Doctor Who Special and I didn't really enjoy it that much, for the usual reasons. Briefly, I just feel that Doctor Who has such a wonderful premise and so much potential for being a thought-provoking and engaging piece of sci-fi-fantasy tv, and not just an effects-laden jumble of childish gimmics and nonsense.
That said, I thought Matt Smith did the best with the poor excuse for a script and I look forward to Capaldi's turn as the Time Lord. I was listening to Orbital's remix of the DW theme and thought of Capaldi's Doc wearing tie-dye. So here we are.
