This year, we got a tangerine-loving hero Santa, Alien and Inception plot knock-offs, and a touching reunion.

"Last Christmas" managed to be kind of scary and yet still festive and funny. We were even introduced to a couple characters it might be nice to see again.

With this episode, Moffat may have reached a pinnacle of immunizing the show not only from criticism but from any sort of discussion at all. What's the point, when none of it is real?

Last Christmas may or may not have met up to fans' expectations - that will be your call, readers - but there were at the very least some tender moments between Danny and Clara and the final scene.

It's the sort of emotional concoction that Doctor Who pulls off better than just about any other TV series.

This was another solid episode of Doctor Who, even if it wasn't the best as far as Christmas specials go.

It's the wary dance between two holiday icons that steals the show.

This is exactly the type of episode Doctor Who fans dream about, really. This episode carries no responsibility; it just has to be fun - which it very much is!

Striving for an adventure that's as scary as it is comically jolly, it seems to have successfully struck a balance between the two. It's a Christmas miracle.
