    I really like the new console room, but Tennant’s and Eccleston’s console room was my favorite!

    I highly enjoyed the episode! Some of the revamps were a nice touch!

    The TARDIS looks a bit claustrophobic, though… I can’t see any new corridors!

  • dw2005

    I’m sorry to those how think that this was the a good christmas special, but I think that it was the worst. I think that the new TARDIS is slightly better than the last version. In my opinion, the 9th/10th doctor TARDIS is the best version of the TARDIS. But that’s a very biased view as I was it was the first TARDIS I saw. The titles where just about ok. I prefer the titles used for the first 5 episodes of series 7. My favourite titles are the series 4 titles.

      Didn’t u you think it was any good at all

      Although I disagree with your opinion, you don’t have to say sorry. It’s just your preference, so no one should be offended. πŸ™‚

    does anyone else think the theme sounds a bit like Dominicο»Ώ glynn’s version (with the dumb de dumb)

  • Mumble5557 Productions

    Best New Series Title Sequence
    Best Christmas Special
    Still prefer the Eighth Doctor’s Tardis though

  • Dalek Sec

    December 27th, 2012 - 10:40am

    I liked the change of plot in this episode, The Doctor didn’t really want to save the world. New TARDIS (old one was better) was cool, but all machinical and cliche sci-fi. I guess it does look pretty, and is perfect for mirroring the 60s console, for the 50th Anniversary. And who is Clara Oswin? actually more importantly Doctor Who?

  • Matthew Bazza

    December 26th, 2012 - 10:46pm

    Is that her, the women twice dead?

    Right then Calra Oswald, it’s time to find out who you really are.

    BEST LINE EVER!!!!!!

    Can’t wait to see the new series

  • McGann is The Doctor

    December 26th, 2012 - 10:19pm

    Absolutely loved this episode and the new title sequence was even better than I was expecting.

    Such an improvement, a return to the more dynamic and creepy nature of the classic series titles ❗

    The new Tardis room is alot less cosy but it’s allright, I guess. The show itself is on much better form since the last christmas special πŸ™‚


    December 26th, 2012 - 12:00pm

    i did like the theme, thought it was good. just didnt like the TARDIS, it was so small!

    • Anonymous

      December 26th, 2012 - 12:10pm

      it isnt small. infact its bigger on the inside πŸ˜€


      December 26th, 2012 - 12:15pm

      very funny! but it is smaller than the last two consoles

    • Scott the Raptor

      December 26th, 2012 - 3:23pm

      How do you know? It looks like there was a layer under the console just like the last interior.

    • Mels

      December 26th, 2012 - 5:31pm

      The new TARDIS interior reminds me of a 1980’s disco rink! :p

    • trenzalore

      December 26th, 2012 - 6:27pm

      i like it i just hope they brighten it up for the 50th, it was so gloomy.

  • gary

    December 26th, 2012 - 11:57am

    The title sequence was a little cheesy however I did like the fact Matt Smith’s face was included in it! I liked the theme tune – glad they havent changed it too much. Reminds me of the Series 4 theme tune

    • McGann is The Doctor

      December 26th, 2012 - 10:17pm

      It was head and feet above the series 4 theme tune, much creepier and much more better.

    • Professor When

      December 31st, 2012 - 8:59am

      Although I loved the fact his face was in it, that was probably the only cheesy part of the titles. πŸ™‚

    Why did the Tardis change?

    • Anonymous

      December 26th, 2012 - 10:40am

      Probably because the doctor wanted a fresh start after Amy and Rory were sent back in time. Also they moved studio and it is the 50th anniversary year so it fitted in quite nicely for the producers and Steven Moffat

      December 26th, 2012 - 12:12pm

      i really wasnt expecting it to change. i cant wait until a playset comes out!

    • Robert

      December 27th, 2012 - 2:10am

      I can’t wait for they playset either and when its released I hop it has a motorised spining roof the circle bits that spun round with the gallifreyen symbols and also I hope they release another flight control tardis with the new interior and this time one that lights up because the last tardis only opened it doors light flashing and sound effects fingers crossed : )

    I really like how they are making things more like the classic series but still keeping modern.
    I will give my verdict to the episode once I’ve actually watched it though.

  • Friend of the Hath

    December 25th, 2012 - 10:11pm

    sorry to all you lot who like the opening titles and new console but i hated it 😑 far better last time than it is now πŸ˜₯ but fantastic episode can’t wait to find out who clara really is! πŸ˜€

    • Esterath

      December 25th, 2012 - 10:36pm

      I love them! Much better than any of the New Series titles.


      December 25th, 2012 - 11:34pm

      The snowmen with the icicle razor sharp teeth were suitably scary for a new generation to remember.The titles and console were a pastiche of old blending with the modern which i mostly liked. The spinning roundabout light effect abovethe tardis was a niggle and not as many roundels as i,d have liked,other than that,two thumbs up.The best seasonal since ‘A christmas carol’.

  • Fezmeister

    December 25th, 2012 - 8:46pm

    I loved the episode; it was easily the best Christmas special. I’ll certainly be watching it again tomorrow night. The TARDIS looks great in action, though I would like to see more of it. The titles are wonderfully cheesy, though I think the theme could have done with more updating.

    • Anonymous

      December 25th, 2012 - 10:00pm

      i totally agree about the tardis, its great. i love the new title sequence, very much like the classic who. especially when matts face appears in the smoke cloud. i love the music too. its getting better

    • Matt Smithy

      December 25th, 2012 - 10:27pm

      If you want to see more, your in for a treat. In series 7 p2 the BBC have said that there is an episode called “journey to the center of the tardis” were you see a lot more of the inside πŸ˜€

  • trenzalore

    December 25th, 2012 - 8:10pm

    i thaught the new console room was actualy a bit gloomy i hope they lighten it up a little for the 50th, but i did like the top bits of the console spinning around. i wonder if they will make a playset from it but not sure if i would buy it.

  • drjakeyoung

    December 25th, 2012 - 7:39pm

    i haven’t seen the episode yet (watching it on iplayer tonight)but i managed to get a gimps of the credits and it says “voice of the great intelligence” just wandering if that was the great intelligence from the abominable snowman and the web of fear?
