Just caught the BBC advert for Christmas 2009 on telly tonight! It's on youtube for the whole world to see! Nice to see my Doctor looking like himself maybe for the last time ever...
Another to add to my BWs!
The weather had taken him by surprise as he trudged up the hill through the snow covered trees to the place where he had left her. It was beautiful. Real snow… even fake snow… gave him so many memories.
Rose. There was his first memory like this. It wasn’t snow then… it was ash. It was still beautiful… tragically beautiful. As were most of his memories, really.
In his old body he had taken her to Cardiff in winter, hadn’t had time to pay attention to it. Woman Wept had been breathtaking too, but in this body, it was the ash falling on them on that grubby council estate that mattered the most.

The TARDIS glided forward and moved onto its side. His legs dangled down the roof and his converses caught on the lantern.
As his make-shift sled took to the air he shouted joyfully.
“Whoo-hoo!” The Reindeer, the Doctor and the TARDIS shot into the sky, turned a full loop-the-loop and headed off… in the wrong direction.
He turned his ‘sled’ and shot back, turned the same loop again and headed off into the unknown…
