Synopsis


This offbeat holiday-themed episode of England's long-running Doctor Who series first aired in 2011. It takes place on Christmas Eve, 1938; while Madge Arwell cycles home, she happens upon an injured Spaceman Angel and reaches out to help him. In return, he promises to grant her any one wish that her heart desires, as a thank you for her kindness. The story then jumps ahead three years. The period is now World War II, circa 1941; a recently-widowed Madge escapes battle-strewn London, kids in tow, for a shack in Dorset. Despite the death of her husband at the hands of Nazi pilots, Madge vows to give the children the finest and most memorable Christmas that she possibly can. It seems impossible at first, but soon a mysterious stranger turns up - an eccentric caretaker who leads the mother and her two kids into a strange and enchanting winter land. Matt Smith stars as the title character. ~ Nathan Southern

    What to say about this, the seventh Doctor Who Christmas Special since the show came back in 2005? If you're reading this, odds are you're already a Doctor Who fan, so I can skip the usual gushing about how great the show is. If you haven't seen this special yet, it's not the best of the bunch, but it's still highly entertaining, and worth your time, and the price of the disc. I don't want to give away any plot here, but it's obvious from the title that they borrowed heavily from C.S. Lewis' famous The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe for this story. As a fan of both the Doctor, and the Narnia series, I was both excited and nervous to see how they pulled it off. The end result was a fun romp on a snowy planet with the obligatory crisis that the Doctor must solve. Both the Whovian and the Narnia fan in me were satisfied and entertained by this particular outing.

    Love the new Doctor Who series. Just disappointed that they stopped including the Christmas specials with the normal series box sets.
