Or even when I’ll be able to watch it.
Stay tuned, but don’t hold your breath.
Oh, it was terrific. It turns out that Santa Claus is a renegade Time Lord who was chased off Gallifrey centuries ago. He has a sort of portable TARDIS core that he uses to make every chimney bigger on the inside, so he can fit through. He’s even found a way to link all the chimneys, as though they’re all part of the same TARDIS, so he can enter every house at the same time.
Unfortunately, the technology was stolen this year by a crazed steampunk-fan-turned-terrorist. She built a retro-futuristic device that looked like a music box but was actually a bomb. She planned to leave one under every Christmas tree in the world.
Fortunately, Santa and the Doctor teamed up to stop her. They converted the bombs into actual music boxes, which played amazing, funky music, and there was a gigantic dance party all across the planet.
At least, that’s what I think should have happened. When the episode is actually broadcast, we’ll see if it makes any more sense than my version.
That sounds awesome. Moffat should hire you to write next year’s Christmas ep.
I’d have to move to England. But if he were smart, he’d hire you.
No moving required. Neil Gaiman lives in Wisconsin or somewhere like that.
I agree with MaryAnn. This is terrific. And it beats the snot out of the real episode. Talk about making sense, you have hit on a great explanation for Santa. 3 cheers!
That might convince me to watch Doctor Who again.
