The 50 Things of Christmas

For those who thought we'd never do a Christmas edition of 50 Things..., this month we present 25 Stupid Things About "The Next Doctor" (and 25 Cool Ones) (It's a Tie, Folks!). Packed full of inside references, postmodern posings and Dickensian capers, it's a great 45 minute story... problem is, it's 60 minutes long.

But never mind, because once again we've done our research and discovered many interesting facts, which we can bring you in 30 Stupid Things About "The Visitation" (and 20 Cool Ones).
