On Doctor Who's Christmas Special This Year

Christmas Day was incredibly busy in my household. Amidst all the joy,  we totally forgot about the Doctor Who Christmas Special.

Thank goodness for iTunes.

I bought the episode the very next day and set up my laptop so my Mom, my Grandmother, and I could watch the special without those pesky commercial interruptions.

Oh my goodness, it did not disappoint.

From a frosted version of the intro/theme song to the inclusion of Santa himself, this special just made me so, so happy. It has the adventure and suspense every Doctor Who episode is required to have, but it has the warm and fuzzy feeling a Christmas special should definitely have. The fact that it's well-written doesn't hurt, either.

Peter Capaldi also really shines here. His portrayal of the Doctor has been really interesting to watch over the past season, and I thought it was the best during this episode in particular.

Clara Oswald (played by Jenna Coleman)'s plot arc was very nicely written, too. (But I can't give anything away because...spoilers. ;] )

Honestly, if this special is a preview of how next season will be, I'm all in.

Did y'all watch this year's Doctor Who Christmas Special? What did you think?
