Happy New Year!
I greatly enjoyed this year's Christmas Special. My favorite Christmas special was "A Christmas Carol", and my least favorite was last year's. This one was pretty great, with the Clara mystery kicking into high gear. Jenna Louise Coleman is mesmerizing so far, and I can't wait to find out what "the deal" is with Clara! I assume that mystery will be the story arc of season 7 (and hopefully be resolved at or by the end). It was cute bringing back The Great Intelligence. I felt bad for Richard Grant - who was terrific - but mostly pushed to the sidelines. Still thumbs way up from me and one of the top 2 or 3 Christmas Specials.
On another note, tomorrow morning I will finally get to hear the first new story in around 30 years for my childhood favorite Doctor, as I will finally be starting on the Tom Baker audios with "Destination Nerva"! Look for a review in the far future here. For now we'll stick with the monthlies....
