It’s the day after Thanksgiving so that means only one thing….it’s time to think about Christmas, right?
This is greatness. Steven Moffat at his best. Best of all, it will be shown on Christmas Day in the U.S. and won’t be the usual several month torture for American audiences that can’t see the same time it’s transmitting in the UK. Ok, not exactly the same time as UK broadcast given time differences, but it will be on in the UK and the US on Christmas Day. As we have written here earlier, the concept of Christmas Day programming in the UK is taken very, very seriously as evidenced by the fact they begin thinking about Christmas scheduling shortly after the previous year has passed. It’s about time America starts thinking along the same lines for primetime viewing too. As I mentioned earlier, does no one watch TV in the US on Christmas Day because there’s nothing to watch or do networks provide nothing because they think no one is watching. I’d bet on the former rather than the latter.
