the-11-doctor-who-christmas-specials-ranked-from-best-to-not-so-best

It’s Christmas Eve which means that the Doctor’s long awaited comeback in The Return of Doctor Mysterio is just around the corner!

The arrival of a Doctor Who Christmas Special is always an auspicious occasion (especially when it’s the only new episode of the year!), and to help us prepare for its premiere, we embarked on a mission to rank the previous festive episodes from best to not-so best, and the results are in!

Check ‘em below, and thanks to everybody who voted.

11. The Next Doctor (1%)

2008 was an epic year for Doctor Who so it was only fitting that it culminated with the return of one of the show’s most iconic adversaries, the Cybermen. The stomping metal monsters were the least of the Tenth Doctor’s worries, though, as his arrival in a snowy Victorian London also brought him face to face with a man who was claiming to be one of his future incarnations. The one, the only and the best. Or was he?

Well, no, as it turns out, but just over 13 million viewers tuned in to find out whether or not Russell T Davies had managed to hoodwink an entire nation again after the Doctor’s botched regeneration in Journey’s End earlier that same year. Oh, the feels. In fact, we needed a whole gap year to recover…

10. The Time of the Doctor (3%)

Matt Smith crash-landed on to our screens as the Eleventh Doctor in Spring 2010 but, after what can only be described as one of the show’s most ambitious and epic tenures to date, timey-wimey was finally up for our Fez wearing, fish fingers and custard eating incarnation on Christmas Day 2013 when he bowed out in spectacular style to an audience of 12.1 million viewers.

It was the end of an almighty era which also served to bookend the year’s far-reaching 50th anniversary celebrations with the arrival of a brand new Doctor in the form of Peter Capaldi. But do you know what? We’ll always remember when the Doctor was Matt. Goodnight, raggedy man.

9. The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe (3%)

Suffice to say, 2011 was a tough year for the Eleventh Doctor. It all kicked off when he was shot dead at Lake Silencio and things then went from bad to worse (and not to mention confusing!) when he was summoned to investigate his own death. He was also reunited with River Song, who would later be revealed as Amy and Rory’s daughter as well as the impossible astronaut behind his untimely demise. Series 6 was a rollercoaster to say the least.

You can’t blame him, then, for wanting to restore his faith in the universe by sharing a little joy, and that’s exactly what he did in The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe when he journeyed back to 1938 to give Madge Arwell and her children – plus the 10.77 million viewers watching at home – the best Christmas ever. What would we do without him?

8. Last Christmas (4%)

Not to be confused with the classic Wham! hit of the same name, although the 2014 Christmas Special was such a madcap adventure, that pretty much anything goes.

It’s not every day that the Doctor comes face to face with Santa Claus himself but he here was in the actual North Pole and, well… it all got a bit weird after that, didn’t it? Still, it ended with the most magical of sleigh rides over a snowy London town, so who cares if it was all happening inside their heads? Besides, stranger things have happened. The perfect Christmas adventure.

7. The End of Time, Part One (4%)

Doctor Who has established a habit of breaking our Whovian hearts during the festive period (but it’s the season to be jolly, God damn you!) and we all needed a stiff drink – or five – to help us pick up the pieces back in 2009 when the Tenth Doctor embarked on his final journey.

Ok, so it really hit the fan in part two on New Year’s Day, but Russell didn’t shy away from giving us all the feels (and then some!) on Christmas Day as the Master returned and our hero accepted the inevitability of his unavoidable fate. Also… Wilfred Mott. Need we say more?

6. The Runaway Bride (7%)

The Tenth Doctor had just said a heartbreaking farewell to Rose Tyler but his tears weren’t even dry before he was thrown head first into his next adventure, featuring Catherine Tate in a wedding dress. Because Christmas.

The ensuing drama made for one of the most epic adventures to date as the Doctor raced to get Donna Noble to the church on time. Her happily ever was over before it even began, however, after it was revealed that this fiesty temp from Chiswick had been caught up in a sinister web of deception. Enter the Empress of the Racnoss. Oh, Donna. Fortunately for her, though, her trip of a lifetime was only just beginning…

5. Voyage of the Damned (10%)

Nobody has ever been fortunate enough to take a peek at the Doctor’s Christmas list but we’re sure that a yuletide romp (no, not like that…) with an acclaimed pop princess would take a pretty high spot. Well, he should be so lucky – lucky, lucky, lucky – back in 2008 when he joined forces with Kylie Minogue for an epic, festive adventure aboard a spaceship replica of the Titanic. You couldn’t write it, but thank God Russell T Davies did.

The dynamic duo was to be short lived, of course, as the would-be companion ended up sacrificing herself to save the world. It was certainly fun while it lasted, though, and the episode still stands as one of the most watched of the revived series, with 13.31 million viewers to its name. We just can’t get it out of our head.

4. The Husbands of River Song (11%)

Steven Moffat gave Doctor Who fans one of the greatest presents of them all last year when he finally introduced River Song to the Twelfth Doctor. While the story itself is an enjoyable enough ride, it’s the final moments that have no doubt resulted in this episode reaching such a high place in the countdown.

After River’s initial debut – and subsequent demise – back in 2008 (wait, has it really been that long?!), we finally got to witness their bittersweet farewell on Darillium. It was the momentous moment we had all been waiting for and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house as they both lived out their happily ever after. You know, in timey-wimey sort of way.

3. The Snowmen (14%)

We found ourselves back in Victorian London on Christmas Day 2012 (the Doctor just can’t stay away, can he?!) when Jenna Coleman’s second introduction as Clara Oswald was upstaged by a band of sinister Snowmen who sounded a lot like that grey, bearded wizard guy from Lord of the Rings. Raymond Briggs’ Snowman was way cuter.

Still, it all added to the festive fun, and even Strax, Jenny and Vastra came along for the ride as a chilling menace threatened Earth. Not everybody would live to tell the tale, but things got rather confusing when it was our new companion who paid the ultimate price. Again. Oh well, there was always next year.

2. The Christmas Invasion (15%)

Taking second place is the one that started it all as David Tennant stepped aboard the TARDIS for his first full-length adventure as the Tenth Doctor… which he spent most of in bed. He had just regenerated, though, so we’ll let him off (this time…), but his untimely recovery meant that there was nobody around to defend planet Earth from the ensuing threat of the sinister Sycorax. Typical.

He came through to save the day (satsuma and all) in the end, of course, and, as the first Doctor Who Christmas Special, the episode kick started a televisual tradition that, over a decade later, is now impossible to imagine the festive season without. And an average of 12 million viewers would tend to agree. Amen to that.

1. A Christmas Carol (28%)

In at first place is the episode that taught us that when you’re alone, silence is all you know… unless you have Katherine Jenkins singing to you through a sonic screwdriver in the middle of a snowy town on Christmas Day. We’ve all had that dream, right?

A Christmas Carol basically sums up everything that a Doctor Who Christmas Special should be about. There’s a heartwarming story, a lonely old miser seeking redemption (who just so happens to be Albus freakin’ Dumbledore!), a shark sleigh ride and Karen Gillan in a police uniform. What more could you possibly want on Christmas Day? Steven Moffat, we salute you.

your-favourite-christmas-special-revealed-2

As we await tomorrow night’s premiere of this year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special, The Husbands of River Song, there’s just enough time to reveal which of the Doctor’s past festive escapades has been voted as your favourite (so far)!

Our beloved hero has embarked on 10 seasonal adventures to date and he even managed to encounter Santa Claus in last year’s yuletide jaunt, Last Christmas, which culminated in a majestic sleigh ride over London and a journey to the North Pole itself. Sort of. It doesn’t get more Christmassy than that, but not even Father Christmas could secure your support.

In fact, on the night before Christmas Day we’re turning back the clock to 2005 when the timey-wimey traditions began in The Christmas Invasion. Doctor Who’s first Christmas Special, and David Tennant’s first full-length episode in role as the Tenth Doctor, has been named as the greatest so far with 19.8% of the vote. The whole of mankind fell under the shadow of the alien Sycorax and, as it turns out, you were loving every minute of it. Well, there were robot Santas, killer trees and satsumas. What more could you possibly want?

In at a very close second with 18.5% was 2010’s A Christmas Carol, which won our poll last year and will stand the test of time as an absolute classic. Let’s face it, though, they’re all classics. And it’s almost time to do it all over again! Thanks to everyone who voted and we hope you all have a very Merry Christmas, sweeties! Check out the full results below…

How many sleeps till Christmas? So the countdown begins, but are you counting down to your Christmas dinner or the Doctor Who Christmas special. For me it’s a bit of both, however it’s not Christmas without the usual alien invasion and festive fun that the Doctor brings. With a brilliant amount of festive adventures to choose from, I am struggling to pick a favourite, but one does stand out. The Runaway Bride isn’t exactly festive but it is very fun and brought a lot of joy on Christmas Day.

The Runaway Bride is Donna Noble’s first appearance in Doctor Who, played by the brilliant Catherine Tate. She was first introduced at the end of series two, just after the heartbreaking scene at Bad Wolf Bay. A bride mysteriously appears in the Tardis and, as ever, it is up to the Doctor to discover how she got there and why. Donna is transported to the Tardis on Christmas Eve, her wedding day. This is one of the tenuous links that make the episode Christmasy, “”How come you’re getting married on Christmas Eve?” “Can’t bear it. I hate Christmas”" (The Doctor and Donna, Christmas special series three). The only other link that really makes this episode festive, is the Empress of the Racnoss, has a star shaped spaceship. When the spaceship descends on London a little girl says, “It’s Christmas”. Again it’s quite a small link to the time of year and in theory this episode could have featured at any point of time.

In comparison to maybe a slightly more festive episode, The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe, is very Christmasy. We have a two different Christmases visited by the Doctor, around the same family. We have the whole family feeling that Christmas brings and the episode is mainly based around bringing a family back together. This episode has more Christmas in it than the Runaway Bride, but for me, the Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe didn’t have me laughing as much as the Runaway Bride did. In the Runaway Bride, we did have the sad moment for example, when Donna picks up Rose’s jacket when she’s in the Tardis, “”She’s gone.” “Gone where.” “I lost her”" (Donna and the Doctor). But other than those few occasions where we are reminded of what the Doctor has just lost, it’s a pretty fun episode.

As a lover of 11, I feel like I can’t discuss Christmas episodes without mentioning The Time of the Doctor. I am still a little bit scared from that episode. Both me and my sister sat there on Christmas Day crying and my mum said, “it’s Christmas, you’re not meant to be crying!” For me that basically sums up that Christmas special. It had that beautiful Christmas feel to it with the snow and beauty of Trenzalore, but having Amy Pond appear at the end with the beautiful, “Raggedy man, goodnight” (Amy Pond) it broke my heart. It is a massive contrast to the Runaway Bride, with its full on alien invasion, star spaceship Christmas to the sadness, for me, of watching a beloved character regenerate, just puts them on opposite ends of the scale.

Comparing the Runaway Bride to David Tennant’s first Christmas special, the Christmas Invasion, again is quite hard to do due to the lacking part of the Doctor. However we do have another lap over of characters, with the return of the pilot fish robot Santas. This time they are under the control of the Emperor of the Racknos. She uses them to bring Donna to her in the underground Torchwood bunker. Most memorably from the scene between the Doctor and Donna in the taxi, “”listen to me. You’ve got to jump!” “I’m not jumping on the motorway” whatever that thing is, it needs you. And whatever it needs you for, it’s not good! Now, come on!” “I’m in my wedding dress!” “Yes, you look lovely. Come one!” (The Doctor and Donna). For me the children in the back of the car that are cheering on the Doctor, kind of make the scene. If I was in their position, I would probably have done the same. When I was sat there on Christmas day first watching this episode, I cheered a little bit when Donna finally made the jump and landed safely in the Tardis.

At the end of the episode we see the Doctor say good bye to Donna. In the typical Doctor and Donna style, it is very untraditional, “”Doctor! Doctor!” “Blimey, you can shout.” “Am I ever going to see you again?” “If I’m lucky”" (Donna and the Doctor). So it all comes together in true Christmas spirit, with a happy ending, Donna deciding to go and see the world, inspired by the Doctor and his life and the Doctor back to the same old life in the Tardis.

Jumping forward slightly to an unrelated note of this years Christmas special, with the few trailers that have been released for Peter Capaldi’s first Christmas special, I think it’s going to be a good one, and possibly the most festive one yet, with an appearance made by Santa himself, played by the brilliant Nick Frost. I don’t really know what this episode will be like, other than what we have seen in the teaser trailers. I like to be surprised when I comes to Who, and especially at Christmas, so I’m avoiding the synopsis that has been released. However from the trailers with Clara and Santa on the roof, it is shaping up to be a good episode, full of the festive fun of Christmas and the usual brilliance of Doctor Who. I am excited to see if Santa is going to help the Doctor or not, could Santa be the bad guy? Who knows, we shall have to wait to unwrap that one on Christmas Day.

The Runaway Bride, although not really very Christmasy, is one of my favourite Christmas specials, purely because I think of it with fond memories and a smile. A smile for both what we see in the episode and the fun we know that is to come for the Doctor and Donna. The Runaway Bride is so much fun and it shows the dynamic between the Doctor and Donna straight away and what their friendship will grow to be, and did grow to be.

Well Merry Christmas to all you Whovians. I hope you all have a good Christmas and a prosperous new year.

moffat-vs-davies

If you spend more than ten minutes on any Doctor Who forum (or the comments section of any Whovian’s facebook status) it usually degenerates—like the age-old ‘that’s what Hitler did’ devolution—to a slanging match about the merits of Steven Moffat. The basic opinion being that he’s not much good, and bring back Russell T. Davies before the whole show goes down the toilet.

Firstly, arguments like that are usually exceptionally whiney, being mostly perpetrated by the guys who made it through the wilderness years with no show at all, but now seem to be arguing they’d rather now watch every week than have the show as Moffat is running it. Which it patently totally rubbish. It’s just that Who fans like to argue.

The basic firing line up against Moffat is a combination of over-complicated plots, ‘clever-clever’ dialogue, thinly written supporting characters, misogyny and turning the Doctor into a giggling child. Go through those one by one, and you might have an example for each, but that doesn’t really mean that it’s a statement that can be made about the whole of Moffat’s era at once.

I’m a huge prior fan of both Russell T. Davies and Steven Moffat. Queer as Folk was a defining part of my TV adolescence, and Davies’ The Writer’s Tale is one of the most fascinating books I’ve ever read. As it happens, I saw him in the crowd at a very large public event this weekend and experienced a ridiculous burst of hero worship, and am kicking myself for not having the nerve to approach him. What Davies brought to Doctor Who was the same thing he’s brought to everything else he’s written—a human connection that completely refuses to deal in archetypes. Only Davies would ever have though to slam Doctor Who into the genre of British council estate soap so thoroughly as to create something like Rose and her family, but its undoubtedly that aspect of the rebooted Who that bought it the love it achieved from the mainstream and turned it back into an unassailable institution. Davies’ stories were powered by sentiment and emotion, and it’s never cleared in the finales of his era’s various major characters: Nine’s jubilant regeneration, Rose’s tearful departure, Ten’s sorrowful tour of those he loved.

And in the middle of Davies’ series of human ties and the rise of the underdogs, Stephen Moffat turned up to give us four gems of twisty-turny plotting, slick scares and iconic soundbites. The episodes were uniformly considered highlights of their series, and given his success with previous shows Coupling and Jekyll I couldn’t have been more excited that he was taking over. He was the natural choice.

The problem comes with an audience that seemed to expect that Moffat was going to carry on the series in exactly the way that Davies has. Which ignores a few patently obvious facts: firstly, that any showrunner is naturally going to make their mark on the show, and secondly that Classic Who itself was a show defined by very obvious eras of storytelling. Is it any surprise that Moffat turned out as series that turns on his original calling cards?

Where Davies’ Doctor Who powered on humanity, Moffat’s powers on mythology, hanging itself on the feeling that the Doctor has lives for ages upon ages, seen many wonders, building every character into something significant: The Madmen with a Box, The Girl Who Waited, The Impossible Girl. With that kind of framework, he infused his iteration of the Doctor with the feeling of a dark fairytale, fed from the stories that infest our childhood. If you want to see it done well, look at A Christmas Carol. If you want to see it down half-well, look at The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe.

And he did it really well, for the most part. Individually, on an episode by episode basis. The difference is, unlike Davies’ series which had Moffat’s clock-puzzle episodes to vary its tone, Moffat doesn’t swing some of his off-episodes into that sort of salt-of-the-earth drama that Davies’ excelled at. Instead we get weak episodes like The Rings of Akhaten and Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS. As Moffat said himself, they got really good at doing something at failed to notice we’ve got tired of it.

And he does seem to have learned from it, if our Capaldi Doctor and freshly-rewritten Clara seems to be anything to go by—shedding the trappings that were both his signature and a thorn in the side of fans, and moving into something a bit different. Of course, it’s Into The Dalek that’ll give us a sense of where the whole series is going, which by the time you read this, you’ll already have seen. Fingers crossed, eh?

ben-miller-to-appear-as-storming-villain-in-series-8

Ben Miller will be guest starring in Series 8 of Doctor Who as “a storming villain”, the BBC has confirmed today.

The actor and comedian will tackle Peter Capaldi’s Doctor as an original adversary in a forthcoming episode, which is now being filmed and has been written by Mark Gatiss.

“I’m a committed Whovian so I cannot believe my luck,” he said. “My only worry is that they will make me leave the set when I’m not filming.”

Steven Moffat added: “With Peter in the TARDIS, we knew we needed somebody special to send everybody behind the sofa – plus, it’s about time Ben Miller was in Doctor Who!”

Ben’s comedy partner Alexander Armstrong appeared as Reg Arwell in ‘The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe’ and he was heard as Mr Smith in The Sarah Jane Adventures.

Are you excited about Ben’s new Who role? What sort of villain do you think he will be…?
