rfs454Mind games, face huggers and tangerines…that’s what passes for Christmastime when the Doctor gets involved. Sarcastic elves, a sassy Santa, and questionably CG reindeer round out Doctor Who’s dip into surreality on this latest Xmas special, “Last Christmas”, from the pen of Steven Moffat and directed by Paul Wilmshurst. So what did the Three Who Rule, brains slowed by turkey and Tofurky, think of P-Cap’s first foray into Yuletide adventure? Down some egg nog, tear yourself away from erudite political discussion with the relatives, and have a listen!

  1. OK, anyone else notice no scars on the head of the doctor or clara at the end of this episode?The same scars the doctor kept saying would be caused by the crab burrowing into the skull.

    Would the doctor really just go flying off somewhere with a possible dream crab outbreak on earth?

    Why does the doctor “wake up” in the same spot outside the tardis both times?

    The dream crabs I think are more closely connected to the head crabs from half life than alien.The half life variant cause the person to attack others like a zombie.The dream crabs did the same…The alien face huggers didn’t do anything except sit there planting a creature in the host which the dream crabs don’t do.

  2. One of my favorite homages was to the scene in Time of the Doctor where Clara helps the aged Matt Smith open the “Christmas cracker” – it was a lovely moment when 12 helped the aged Clara with the same. Maybe it was just me, but it really hit me.
