Some shelters won't let you adopt a dog around Christmas time due to them turning into unwanted gifts, but please consider rehoming an abandoned dog rather than buying from a breeder.

Christmas Special: Santa is Real, Not Evil

To allay any parental concerns Steven Moffat has said that the Santa Claus presented in the upcoming Christmas special will be ‘real’ and is definitely not evil.

Speaking at the Series 8 DVD launch, he said: “Santa could never be evil, for heaven’s sake! Santa is both real and a Christmas hero.”

“No no, don’t worry any parents who were worried about that. Santa is presented, as he is in real life, as a great Christmas hero.”

On Nick Frost’s casting in the role: “He actually is the real Santa. He’s been faking it up until now. For the first time he’s allowing the natural colour of his beard to show through.”

He added: “You could figure it out, you know, Nick Frost, Nicholas Frost – you see?”

Peter Capaldi Gives Paddington Bear A Makeover


 Doctor Who lead Peter Capaldi recently joined forces with British charity the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) to bring us Paddington Who? The statue is located at the Greenwich Meridian, Royal Observatory Greenwich in South East London.


Paddington’s distinctive duffel coat has morphed in to a version of the Tardis while the back features a rather jolly looking disco-dalek.  Capaldi’s creation is one of just 50 versions of Paddington Bear designed by a stellar cast of celebrities including Sandra Bullock and Benedict Cumberbatch.  They have popped up around London in recent days to raise awareness for the ChildLine arm of the charity which enables young people to get help and advice about a wide range of issues.  All 50 bears will be auctioned off later in the year with the proceeds going to ChildLine.

Boneless

Boneless was the name the Twelfth Doctor gave the two-dimensional beings from another plane.  They were able to reduce both lifeforms and other three-dimensional objects to two-dimensions. They were also able to change objects from two-dimensions into three-dimensions after taking a three-dimensional form when the 2Dis reversed its original effects.

The Foretold


The Foretold was injured in a war and fitted with "state of the art camouflage" and a "personal teleporter". The technology within it kept it alive, leading it to kill for thousands of years after the war, draining the energy from its victims to sustain itself.
The Foretold killed its victims sixty six seconds after first appearing to them. It took them out of phase in order to drain them, meaning only they could see it. The Foretold selected its victims based on physical and mental illness, preying on the weakest first. (TV: Mummy on the Orient Express
