Ok, this is a post-entry. The Christmas special was really incredible. So epic. The Christmas Carol reference was only slightly crowbarred in, there were swimming fish, and the Doctor married Marilyn Monroe. Actually there was quite a few moments involving the Doctor and romance, or his total ineptitude at romance. The best quote on that front was when the guy (as a young man) was asking the Doctor for advice when he knew the woman was about to kiss him and the Doctor goes "It's either this or staying in your room and inventing a new kind of screwdriver, don't make my mistakes." Hilarious. And he, again, doesn't understand how people can make out and not suffocate. Maybe Time Lords use their respiratory bypass when they make out. I want more about the Doctor's love life. 'Cause I don't believe that his first kiss was Rose at over 1,000 years old. Anyway, it was lovely and very exciting and just awesome. Oh, how I loved it.
Also, I've ordered the 10th Doctor's sonic screwdriver off Amazon and I'm making a knit K-9!
EDIT: I somehow managed to exclude my very favourite quote from this episode, possibly from the whole series.
"Do you know, in 900 years of time and space I've never met anyone who wasn't important before." - The Doctor
