It’s that time of year again… when the USA goes into Turkey Mode and the rest of the Christmas capitalism world is full-on Christmas-ing. Tradition stands that right around now is when BBC rocks out it’s Children in Need donation campaign, which of course equates to excellent and often funny extras relevant to your favorite TV shows.
Doctor Who is one of the main draws for viewers, and we have this year’s edition right here for your viewing pleasure in case you missed it (or don’t live where there is BBC):
The TARDIS Team gives our reactions to the special and lets you know how to donate to Children in Need and similar charities.
Lorena: Who is the actor playing Santa?
Emily: Nick Frost. He and Simon Pegg do a ton of things
Lorena: because when he says the word ‘magic’ he sounds like someone in harry potter
Emily: I’m ashamed of you. You don’t know who he is?
Emily: Also, isn’t he the guy who Jane Foster has lunch with? Sea Bass Sea Bass Sea Bass guy?
Lorena: Chris O’Dowd? Wait, who’s ashamed of what?
Lorena: Also, I had some sea bass the other night and it was just okay. Jane was smart to cut out of that lunch.
Emily: Nevermind, wrong guy. They’re all in Simon Pegg’s End of the World
Lorena: Gotcha. Okay, but someone is actually named Nick Frost and playing Santa?
Emily: Actually, yes 🙂
Emily: What is with the elves? And did the sleigh crash?
Lorena: The elves were great! hahaha Sleigh crash?
Emily: At 27 seconds
Lorena: Oh, I see
Emily: Presents strewn about, ornaments smashed, an upturned sled…
Lorena: I genuinely enjoyed the bit where they were all “Your mum and dad? Because they love you so much? It’s a nice story, dear…” “Time to grow up and face reality”
Emily: what is with the strict ban on hair products?
Lorena: yeah! Like what?
Emily: she needs them!
Lorena: she clearly uses hair products
Emily: Clearly! But maybe just didn’t want them for Christmas, which I can understand.
Emily: But I love the part about growing out of Fairy tales – did you? did you really?
Lorena: YES! With the TARDIS noise in the background! The only thing I didn’t love was that Amy Pond’s character growth was centered on that idea…changing her name from Amelia, “Bit fairytale”
Emily: Hm. I don’t remember that in particular.
Lorena: Oh, season 5, episode 1.
Lorena: That line though, “Did you Clara? Did you really?” does things to me!
Lorena: Like emotionally intense feelings
Emily: I want that to be my new thing “Did you really?”
Lorena: Said in a deep voice 🙂
Emily: Is Missy going to be in this?
Lorena: I don’t think so. I think just Santa. My mom thinks he’s going to be evil Santa
Emily: But then why does the Doctor need his help?
Lorena: Enemy of my enemy is my friend?
Emily: yes, and the doctor seems really scared or worried
Emily: what’s at stake? the earth? as always?
Lorena: Christmas!!! Are we calling Doctor Who trite?!!
Emily: :-O haha
Lorena: NOBODY LOVES TANGERINES! is possibly my new random shout go-to
Emily: It’s not true. I love tangerines.
Lorena: Me too! The satsumas!!!!
Emily: HA! We are so the same person
Apples not so much…
