Songtaran Carols!

I’ve been feeling very Whovian this week, what with the Christmas special being Tuesday (“The Snowmen” at 9 p.m. on BBC America) and all.

Merry Christmas to me!

So, concluding my week of Doctor Who-ness, I wanted to post this:

Songtaran Carols! (as interpreted by Strax)

Flanked by Vastra and Jenny, Strax puts his unique spin on some favorites, doesn’t he? Wonderful! The Doctor and Clara popping in just adds to the merriment.

I love videos like this where you can tell the actors are cutting up, having fun and a general jolly good time!

TARDIS Revealed!

A couple of pictures have been released revealing a revamped TARDIS that will debut with the Doctor Who Christmas special, “The Snowmen,” at 9 p.m. on Dec. 25 on BBC America.

Here’s a fair view of the interior:

What do you think, Whovians? Personally, I think it’s a little dark. I rather liked the light, airy feel of the TARDIS when the Doctor was traveling with Amy and Rory. But, perhaps this color and light change are supposed usher in some more serious themes? Hmmm.

Whatever the reason, I’m willing to give it a chance. A new TARDIS interior plus a new theme and titles may reinvent the whole show! I’m looking forward to watching how it all plays out.

Tiding Me Over Until My Doctor’s Appointment

Doctor Who went away a couple of months ago.  BBC does this to us every year, so I should have been ready for it. And, I guess I was, but it still made me sad.

The shining beacon of the off-Doctor span of time is the annual Christmas special! Often, these are stand-alone shows with a holiday theme that commonly rip off well-known tales like Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. I’m fine with this! The good Doctor spices up any old story, and it amuses me how they massage old favorites.

This year, it looks like the Christmas special is picking up right after the Ponds’ departure, with the Doctor a moody mess.  They’ve put out a couple of prequels with some returning characters, the latest of which was released today. Have you seen them? Take a look!

“The Great Detective”

“Vastra Investigates”

The Christmas special, “The Snowmen,” is scheduled to air Dec. 25 at 9 p.m. on BBC America. Will you watch? I’ve also just read that the special will premiere a new title sequence and revamped theme! Merry Christmas to us!
