Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman star in The Snowmen

Is The Snowmen The Best Christmas Episode Yet?

Welcome to our now-traditional “was the latest Christmas episode better than all of the others?” poll, in which we tempt you into clicking some radio buttons to impart an opinion which everyone will forget about for a week and then be surprised by the results.

(Much like a political election. But unlike politics, THIS ACTUALLY MATTERS. Right?)

We loved The Snowmen, in that “no talking, mouth agape for 60 minutes” way in which Classic Doctor Who was once loved on first viewing. As such, we thought it only right to check – is it just the occupants of Kasterborous Towers, or was The Snowmen the best Christmas Doctor Who adventure yet?

You’ll recognise the other candidates…

So, vote above for your favourite, and leave some pertinent, insightful but spoiler-free comments below.
