Doctor Who Christmas Special

Posted on 2010-12-25 16:00

This year (lucky) folks in the US get to watch the Doctor Who Christmas Special on Christmas Day just like the Brits. I took advantage of my virtual proximity to Cardiff to watch it on the BBC iPlayer with the family several hours before it airs on BBC America (a station I don't get). Michael Gambon (Dumbledore)'s performance of a sort of Scrooge character in this episode even made me forget (for a little while) my disappointment that Netflix doesn't have the Alastair Sim version of A Christmas Carol in instant play.
