When the show first returned, and for a long time afterward, I accepted it uncritically. The theme music would start and I'd feel all giddy that this silly show I'd had to put foil on the rabbit ears to watch (kids, ask your parents) in my youth had come back. I loved every Christmas special, even the much reviled Voyage of the Damned. Really, it's Christmas, I'm stuffed with lovely food and drink, I'm not that demanding. Now I'm concerned that this one will have Clara and suck.
