The Caretaker Cometh...

A very festively poignant and humorous little tale with just a secondary smidgeon of C.S Lewis influence thrown in. And an equally touching climax regarding the outcome of Season Six's "The Wedding of River Song." I would certainly recommend this truly Christmas-laced adventure which truly demonstrates the concept that miracles can happen.

This is by far the best Christmas special by far that the new series has produced. Matt Smith is at his comic best, and the humour is there, but is offset by great moments of sentiment and great sparkle and a little CS Lewis thrown in for good measure. All the other Christmas tales seriously lacked something in them, and they didnt actually feel that much like Christmas. But this story does, and it just happens to be one of Steven Moffats finest scripts so far. Very few new series stories have the genuine little touch of magic about them that this smart, easy flowing tale does. And there are no mind boggling twists and turns, and the story is far more enjoyable because its easier to grasp. I wish the next series to stay like this episode more, no mind warping rubbish and all that please. This is a great episode.
