A Christmas Carol

STORYLINE

A space liner, with a large number of passengers aboard, is in difficulties while flying through the atmosphere of an unknown planet. Amy and Rory have been spending some time on board in the honeymoon suite and they quickly appear on deck. Amy calls the doctor for help and the TARDIS soon appears ahead of the ship. However the Doctor cannot save them and the only other option is to land on the planet below. There the Doctor meets a Scrooge like figure by the name of Kazran Sardick, the only person that can save Amy, Rory and all the other lives on the Spacecraft. The Doctor learns that the atmosphere surrounding the planet is controlled by Kazran who is unwilling to help the liner. The only option to save the ship is for the Doctor to persuade Kazran to save the liner himself.

REVIEW

Okay, admit it. When you heard the title of the Doctor Who Christmas special was going to be “A Christmas Carol”, you thought, “Oh great, not another one”. How many times have we seen it? A show stays on the air long enough; they eventually get around to doing a version of the Charles Dickens classic, usually an incredibly bad version at that. So with that in my mind, imagine my surprise when this version of the Christmas Carol turns out to be something completely different… well, not exactly different… well, okay it’s sort of exactly the same, only different.
