Review: The Snowmen (Doctor Who) | FiniteUniverse

Charlie writes:

"Another christmas day comes another christmas special; this time giving the festive season a punch once again by making something so traditional seem so scary; the first being Santa, the second being Angels and now: Snowmen. This episode introduces us to a whole selection of new features, including a new TARDIS design, a new title sequence and a brand new companion... wait, she's called Clara? But I thought Jenna just played Oswin in that amazing Dalek episode... I'm so confused!" (Doctor Who, TV) 7/10

I watched this last night and found it quite entertaining and enjoyable. I'd go a soft 7.5 or 8/10. It wasn't amazing, but then we've had the Ponds for so long that it will take some time to adjust without them.

That said, this was probably one of the least Christmas-y specials yet, though it did still tie in overall. Clara is definitely cute, but we'll have to wait to see if she can hold her own and be a proper companion.

It was better than last years for sure.
