Tuning into Dr Who special was a waste of an hour of my life

Have your say

Goodness me, wasn’t the Christmas Dr Who a complete let-down?

The storyline was a waste of my expectations – and expectations need serious management around Christmas.

I expect a lot from, for example, Santa, as I’m very good, and I also have something of a shopping compulsion.

And I expect a lot from writer and producer Steven Moffat – but the Christmas special was just not, well, special.

Seriously, having to defend the show to an already impatient husband who thinks it’s the cultural equivalent of damp wallpaper was not easy.

‘It was very Christmassy’ I volunteered hopefully, waving a bottle of sherry under his nose while cursing at the waste of an hour of my life.
