A spacecraft set on an apocalyptic collision course with Earth, a host of killer robot angels and an evil severed headed mastermind - it's just another Christmas for the Doctor... 2007 Christmas special guest starring Kylie Minogue.
The Doctor finds his TARDIS colliding with a spaceship based on the RMS Titanic during a Christmas party. With the help of a waitress named Astrid, the Doctor must take on the race called the Hosts as the lives of the Titanic crew and those on Earth are in danger. Written by
A rumor was on the Internet before this was shown that the character Astrid was going to vanish at the end by spinning around and you would hear the TARDIS noise. Her name being a anagram of Tardis gave strength to the rumor. See more »
When the door to the bridge is closed to stop the hosts he actually uses the whistle control to shut it. See more »
I was fairly disappointed with the last Christmas special (co-starring the comedian) and I wasn't expecting too much from this either. Well it wasn't too bad at all, this is a great and fresh instalment into the Xmas specials. The story is strong as usual and the idea of the space titanic wasn't too silly as I had first thought, it felt a little like the Poseidon adventure in parts of the episode but this isn't a bad thing. The acting is another plus here, some new interesting characters that the doctor meets and quite a few deaths also which I was surprised by. Overall the latest entry into doctor who is certainly worth a viewing and I just hope that series 4 won't be ruined by the comedian... 8/10
