Doctor Who Christmas Special...

Well, no major spoilers but a few quotes with some context of the episode. So maybe wait to read this after you have watched it (especially if you are a major fan).

Alrighty, so I know I am a little late but I wanted to share some of my favourite quotes from Doctor Who Christmas Special with you. You might not get these if you didn't watch the special but anyway.

The Doctor tends to point out the obvious a lot. The reason this is funny is because of the sarcasm he uses when he says it or the fact that he totally just missed the real meaning or context of the comment or situation.

For example, when a young girl asks them where they are after crossing into a new universe, this is what he answers:

See? Obviously they are in a forest, in a box, in a sitting room. That is how they got there! But where exactly is there?

And when, in a tight spot, someone asks them what they should do, his answer is:

This is pretty much exactly how things work out for him. All the time.

But then, the Doctor always turns things around and says or does something deep and meaningful. He is great at stating the simple truths of life that people seem to miss. For example, a mother has avoided telling her children that their father passed away. She yells much more at her children and in a moment alone with the doctor, she says: "I don't know why I yell at them." And the Doctor responds in this way:

Within the first five to ten minutes of the episode, he had me teary eyed. Isn't it completely true? It just makes so much sense and he says it so well.

These are just three of the dozens of great quotes from the Christmas Special.

Many people said that the episode was not good but I really did love it. It was such a sweet story. And so full of hope. I hope you have watched and enjoyed it as well. If not, do it. Now!
