    Are you going to be watching the Christmas Special at 6.15pm on December 25th 2014?

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    I won't be watching it live - but I will watching it later that evening.

    We'll be having our evening meal around that time - as that makes sense for people - and then I'll be watching it later on

    I will watch as I always do. It's Christmas and it's Who.

    No, I won't be allowed to but I will watch it in the days following. It looks awful. Trailers and teaser clips should whet your appetite for the episode, and given we've seen no monsters, nothing tense, no interesting actors and no striking visual images, all we have to look forward to is the Doctor chatting to a bloke dressed as Santa. DULL!

    Have you seen the new trailer via FB ? Monsters, tension and bizarre visual image galore !!

    Despite my original flippant answer, I look forward to it but there's no way I'll get to watch it live - more likely midnightish when everyone else has gone to bed.

    I watch it live with my nieces and sister, but TBH no matter how exciting it is, the overwhelming food and drink get the better of me and I nod off! So I watch it again when I'm back in London!

    Yes, although I will be watching it mostly for Mr. Capaldi, who I am definitely warming to.
    I'm not sure about the whole Santa Claus thing. Does a Christmas special have to be about Christmas? (rhetorical question)

    It's nice to have a bit of Christmas in there, but it doesn't have to be all about Christmas I reckon. I'd rather have a Very Good Episode that was shown on Christmas Day, but you can't win them all.

    I'm happy for Father Christmas to turn up though. That's a great idea.

    They should look at Chimes of Midnight to see how a Christmas should be done.

    Christmas Spirits (by Paul Clement) was a bit MR James.

    They adapted Jubilee - why not Chimes of Midnight for Christmas? Something to do with the Exec Prod having to write it I guess.
