    Loved it except for th Clara cameo, if they were going to do it then really do it, not just a 5 second hello, it was just a bit unsatisfying, the rest was great and a great farwell for Peter

    I enjoyed it quite a bit. There really was no big enemy. I felt the theme was memories.... thus he got his back about Clara. And the Captain's big reveal was wonderful. I got misty eyed.

    Not sure how I felt with "Brilliant". Honestly I probably would have said "oh s---" or something. The Doctor is usually a bit wonky after a regeneration and wouldn't think so clearly.

    I was pleased they did even that. It was reminiscent of the Amy goodbye when Eleven regenerated. I was just happy they gave him back his Clara memories. That always felt wrong to me.

    I found it to be a satisfying send-off.

    In fairness, the reason for such a brief appears with Clara is the fact Henna Coleman had been extremely busy with Victoria. They were lucky to get her at all.

    Plus, it was about as brief as Karan Gillian's appearance as well.

    It really was. Not a hit you over the head Christmas special. I really like the troops singing Silent Night and putting aside their fighting for just a time in order to be kind to one another. A testament to PC's Doctor, be kind. And that it did actually happen was even more amazing.

    Checked it out, the Christmas truce actually took place in 1914.
