The Pting was a bit like nibbler and Stitch melded together.
I've not had chance to see my recordings of it yet, but a friend has told me that he's pleased to see dyspraxia being represented.

As time goes on the inclusion of different people won't be noticed as they are better represented on television. I remember the uproar over the first lesbian kiss on Brookside, but it's now represented on Coronation Street as an everyday occurrence (which it is).

The same goes for the weather presenter with a physical disability, it attracts little attention now that everybody has gotten over the shock of seeing someone with a disability giving the weather forecast!

Re: Doctor Who

I think they should do a Game of Thrones Christmas special.

Re: Doctor Who

Is that confirmed now? I heard rumours a few weeks ago.

EDIT: DWM the official magazine have apparently confirmed it in the new issue.

.With 2018 marking a brand-new era for Doctor Who it is only right that 2019 kicks off in spectacular style. So, to mark the occasion, in this year’s festive episode the TARDIS will travel through the time vortex from its traditional timeslot on Christmas Day and will land in style on New Year’s Day.
Synopsis
Quote:
As the New Year begins, a terrifying evil is stirring from across the centuries of Earth’s history. As the Doctor, Ryan, Graham and Yaz return home, will they be able to overcome the threat to planet Earth?
At least it's still a festive episode but set at New Year instead.

Re: Doctor Who

Well it won’t have been for want of ratings. Who has always done extremely well in that early evening Christmas Day slot. So either the Beeb wanted to do something different, or Chibnall did. My money would be on a bit of both. To be honest if it means we get a proper episode rather than a Christmas-themed lite caper through time and space I’m all for it. Plus, it has been getting increasingly difficult to watch anything as-broadcast in our household on Christmas Day anyway, so I’m not even sure I’ll miss it.

Re: Doctor Who

The Christmas episodes always were a bit vomit inducing, trying to fit a soppy Christmas message in. (notable exception was Tennants excellent debut) Everyone's too comatose and playing with pressies to follow any sort of plot.
