This Christmas special is the one that played at the end of the eighth series. It was well written and paid homage to many classic sci-fi stories. It was definitely a new and pleasant twist as far as the Christmas specials go. Definitely worth the price of admission.
"Last Christmas" is Peter Capaldi's first Christmas special as the current Doctor on Doctor Who. It's very creepy at times, but also a lot of fun. Nick Frost plays Santa Claus. (Sort of "St. Nick Frost.") There are creatures that are inspired by the "face huggers" from the Alien films, which may be too intense for young children - which is sort of odd for a Christmas special. I enjoyed it.
The Doctor Who Christmas specials are a tradition in the UK and Peter Capaldi carries it on very well. He is a darker Doctor but that does not mean that it's all doom and gloom. It is after all Christmas. Lots of fun to see the Doctor riding in Santa's sleigh-You will believe in Santa.
I would recommend this to a friend

Another Doctor Who Christmas Miracle
Doctor Who keeps getting better as the show progresses and the Christmas specials always are a treat. Best present to get if you are a WHOVIAN. Seeing the good Doctor and Santa team up against aliens is awesome. Can't wait to see how they will top this next holiday season.
This Special just as Season 8 was, is by far the darkest of them yet. Typically the Christmas Specials offer feel good endings and whay have you. This one however doesn't really do that. Either way though this is still a must have for a Doctor Who collector.
