Review of Christmas Doctor Who now up on Dork Adore! Who feels festive? (Seriously, hope Christmas was good.)
I did consider doing a whole blog post, rambling for a few hundred words, but I’m not sure there’s audience or need for it on Christmas Day, really.
Stil, to anyone reading, hope you’re having a good time with whatever combination of turkey, presents and crackers you’ve ended up with. If you’ve had a crappy year, you’re not alone, but that’s the beauty of the bright colours and big garish ideas. Distraction, if only for a day.
If you do want season-themed internet content, I posted a festive short story a few days ago, so give that a look. Otherwise, have a great one, and I’ll be back here before you know it. That Doctor Who Christmas special won’t review itself, y’know.
On The Digital Fix, I preview tonight's Outnumbered Christmas special. Only one TV blog left before Christmas! Regular readers can probably guess what it is.

I’ve been away from the Friday stories for a while, mostly due to MA deadlines, but I really wanted to do a Christmas Friday story. Especially since I wanted to do one last year, but was stopped by having to voyage pointlessly back to London to replace my smashed glasses. (Don’t ask.)
So, here it is! To make up for last year (and because I ran over quite badly), it’s longer than usual. Ta-da.
