Storyline

The Doctor is living in 1892 London, still despondent over the loss of his friends. He has no interest in what is happening in the world even after he learns that the snow is strangely sentient and can form into rather vicious snowmen. A local barmaid, Clara, is intrigued by the Doctor and he is soon intrigued by her when it turns out she also works as a governess caring for Captain Latimer's two children. Together, they fight Dr. Simeon who has known the evil snowmen since he was a child. The Doctor is shocked when he realizes that he's met Clara before....and will no doubt meet her again.

Nearly best Christmas episode ever!
25 December 2012 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Sound, interesting story (well, besides some "scarf issues" = inconsistencies in clothes that appear "out of the dark"). Nicely shaped characters. The doctor has a new companion. A companion he already met before in form of a Dalek. The question is if she is able to substitute Amy and(!) Rory? We'll see ...

Still more a child story ... but the Doctor is slowly getting old ... aehm ... growing up.

This current episode continues the improved animation effects that started in the last two series in comparison to current US series.

Can't wait for the story to continue in April next year.
