    Re: Doc Who Xmas Special - what did you think ?

    I agree that the plot line was very weak - for children or adults.
    I know that the 'sciency' bit is always a bit wrong but this was nonsensical in parts.
    And as it is still aimed at children I thought it was a shame to not let Astrid live - she could have decided to stay on Earth and not travel with the doctor. It seemed a bit much that all those people died (2000 he said, on a ship that big??) and the competitions winning couple and Kylie.

    IMO all of the new Doctor Who episodes have been weak. Billy Piper was awful the other one I've forgotten already, and I shall definitely not be watching the new series with that insufferable Catherine "all I can do is shout and look stupid" Tate.

    Post removed due to unnecessary obscenities. EduGeek is an open forum and some people are easily offended by such language. Ric_

    Re: Doc Who Xmas Special - what did you think ?

    Both I and my teenage daughter thought it was very weak - lots of loose ends not properly tied up, lots of unexplained bits (like the young man who was shot seeming to recover without medical aid, and lasting a very long time before being rescued too!). Both of us biggish fans, but each series is a bit of a mixed bag - some very good and some rather poor. Sometimes it feels like they are more interested in how things look than in the content of the plot. But I guess that, with a lot of different writers involved, some episodes are going to appeal more than others.
