Tweets Of The Holiday Season
A feast of festive tweets including a haunting in the Who family and a Spaced reunion
@tommyleeedwards Quick "Amy Pond" sketch for my next #DoctorWho comic book cover
Christmas is a time for friends, family and life-threatening levels of booze, which might explain why things have been a little quiet in Twitsville over the past two weeks, with many of our favourite tweeters signing off for the holidays. Still, that didn’t stop Starwars.com’s leading lady bonniegrrl keeping us entertained with talk of what she should nickname her breasticles: “For the record, I do NOT call my boobs The Skywalker Twins. Or Trick ’r Treat director Michael Dougherty filling us in on a Christmas getaway only a horror obsessive would even consider: “Greetings from the @StanleyHotel, home of The Shining http://yfrog.com/h89u3jj.”
There was even a haunting in the Who family with Torchwood-scribe James Moran visited by the ghost of characters past in his dreams. Makes you wonder if Russell T Davies can ever get to sleep at night.
@jamesmoran Weirdly, first time I’ve *ever* dreamed about writing. Each version was acted out as I wrote it, too- with Gareth David-Lloyd in the lead.
@Paul_Cornell @jamesmoran You’re being haunted by Ianto! ‘You killed me, James!’
@jamesmoran @Paul_Cornell Yet still he lives in my dreams! It’s like the Telltale Heart or something, my guilt won’t let me rest…

@simonpegg Doctor Who Xmas special was great. Can’t remember the last time I saw that much lens flare on the bridge of a spaceship.
@THEHITCHFACTORY I think I preferred the writing on RTDs final full series; hugely entertaining stuff that series 5, whilst good, didn’t quite match.
@bonniegrrl Happy Life Day & #MerrySithmas to you all! #starwars #SWHS http://twitpic.com/3jsmiw
@warrenellis Someone broke into the house in middle of night. Beat intruder to death. Did not notice red suit until too late. Sorry.
@mishacollins Happy holidays! I’m having Christmas with @sarapalinusa & her family. We’re taking sniper rifles up in a helicopter to go reindeer hunting!
@ADaniels3PO Sad that LF’s gift box did not contain a 3PO swimsuit. Nor the young lady wearing it on the web. Perhaps that’s what’s under the tree!!!
@ADaniels3PO Calamity! Everything on my tree is silver! LF’s sent me buckets of 3PO ornaments. In gold! (of course). What to do? Xmas is so stressful!!!!
@ADaniels3PO Remember… pine needles aren’t just for Christmas. They’re for the next eight months
@BillBailey begone cookery tv, i care not for your jus’s and faux macho posturing. Widdecombe revealed as a Sith Lord on Christmas Day..i’d watch
@CancelledAgain I gave Tudyk a Wonderfalls DVD set. He’s digging it.
@Wossy You can tell when your partner is #addictedtoWOW when they mutter stuff like “goblins are sooo funny…”
@edgarwright Rolf Harris is trending. And very much alive. Wobble power!
