Three stars is good solid entertainment.
Four stars means you never dreamed television could be this good.

Doctor Who, My favorite tv show in December was Doctor Who, "A Christmas Carol," by Steven Moffat. The plot, though not the characters or setting, is similar to that of a Steven Moffat Doctor Who short story "Continuity Errors", which appeared in Decalog 3. Steven Moffat wrote the classic Doctor Who and the Curse of the Fatal Death, has won four consecutive Hugo Awards for his Doctor Who scripts, wrote the recent episode of Sherlock, "A Study in Pink," and is writing the upcoming Tintin film. "A Christmas Carol" will be rerun on BBC America Jan 1 and Jan 2.

The final five (where have we heard that phrase before) episodes of Caprica all air, back to back on January 4. Seems like SyFy can't wait to get rid of this show.

Medium ends on January 21 after seven seasons and 132 episodes.
