When Steven Moffat took over as head writer of Doctor Who in 2010, he said that he wanted to make the show a "dark fairy tale." Hence the Girl Who Waited, and the Last Centurion, and all that. But I have to say, I haven't ever felt the fairy-tale vibe from Moffat's Doctor Who quite as strongly as I did with last night's Christmas special, "The Snowmen." I finally get what Moffat was getting at when he talked about turning the most sciencey of shows into a kind of fable.
