Every year we always try to watch the Doctor Who Christmas Special as soon as we are able and this year was no exception. Even staying out a little later than we probably should have with Geek Baby to watch it with family on Christmas Day…
This year I was particularly curious because I knew that it was going to involve River Song. The dynamic between the Doctor and River Song has always been an interesting one partly because they keep meeting in the wrong order. So the question is when is this in their timeline and how does it fit into their story that we have seen so far? The story of the episode is pretty much secondary to seeing the relationship between the Doctor and River play out. (Spoilers for the Doctor Who Christmas Special after the jump.)
The other day, I blogged about Doctor Who Series Seven. After looking back at that, I’m looking forward. It was a season of nostalgia, of memories of Doctor Who seasons we’ve never even watched. So, not perfect, but it’s kept us entertained.
So I also blogged about what we might expect from the 50th Anniversary Special, coming later this year – what seems likely, now that the special is the next episode?
I also explored some ideas of what a really epic plotline for Doctor Who might be – in terms of making a Doctor Who movie, but which could also be where they are going with a Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special. So let’s see if any of these ideas still have traction!
Let’s look back at my hypotheses, and consider what they’ve set up for themselves so far! Spoilers for Season Seven of Doctor Who!
