This reveal is the best Christmas present the show could ever give me. That the rest of "The Snowmen" is so good and so much fun is just a very welcome bonus.

It's not quite as action-packed as previous specials but...this festive instalment of the sci-fi series will give the post-dinner snoozers a much-needed boost.

[Matt] Smith is such a terrific Time Lord - I enjoy seeing him steadily maturing in the role.
