Madame Vastra! Jenny! I think I'm in love with this Christmas special already. I've been wanting to see more of them ever since A Good Man Goes To War aired.

Not to mention our favorite nurturing Sontaran. But that very Sontaran died in a previous episode, so this must have happened before his death, but it features a new companion, so it must take place after the last episode of the Pond era, which means this episode must happen before it happened already.
Oh dear...

AlanBrown@3; Earlier in Strax's timeline but later in the Doctor's is quite straightforward, it seems to me.

Based on what we saw of her in the season premiere and in the intro here, I think I'm going to like Jenna-Louise Coleman.

My comment above seems to have repeated itself. A pair-o-docs.

Now I understand what Moffat said by describing the Doctor as 'Scrooge' in this special, which is understandable after what he went through last episode. I'm guessing, like Scrooge, he has a change of heart, and that's why he continues his adventures with a new companion.

Lovely - atmospheric, shadowy, mournful - just lovely. Can't wait.

Will Strax defeat the moonites?? Let's all hope so before they invade and make slaves of all humankind.
