I was particularly excited for this year’s festive offering as I rather enjoyed the most recent series thanks in no small part to the performance by Peter Capaldi. While Capaldi was great as always, I found Steven Moffatt’s story to be rather dark and, were it not for the appearance of Santa Claus, I’d question whether it should be shown on Christmas Day at all.
When the presents are unwrapped, the turkey eaten, the champagne drunk and the crackers pulled, it’s time to sit down with a box of chocolates, put on the onesie and watch the best of Christmas Day telly…
