Is it just me or did anyone else find the Dr Who Christmas special virtual rubbish?
I'm not talking about the special effects, computer generated or otherwise, the acting or the technical side but the story... Lame, juvenile and uninspired. The series has cost more than most feature films, had superb actors (David Tennant, John Simm, Timothy Dalton, okay and Bernard Cribbins) but a plot dreamed up by some fourteen year olds in the playground.
Technically magnificent but so what? Sloppily directed, stretched out and downright tacky, not even charmingly tacky like the "old" Dr Who. David Tennant got me to look at the series but even he couldn't rescue the final episode. Came in with a bang... went out with a plop.
