Did You Know?


In his first draft of the episode, Russell T. Davies had Buckingham Palace destroyed by the Titanic. The Doctor stops the ship from crashing but not before it smashes through the palace. In this version, instead of wishing the Doctor a Happy Christmas, the Queen is heard to curse the Doctor. This same early draft also featured a hoped-for cameo by Prince Charles. Davies spared the Palace as he felt it was too negative an ending for a holiday episode. See more »


When the Doctor and Astrid are transported back to the ship and some crew members approach the group, Astrid hides behind the Doctor. On the next shot in a close up, Astrid hides again. See more »


The Doctor: Two thousand people on this ship, six billion underneath us, all of them slaughtered, and why? Because Max Capricorn is a loser!
Max Capricorn: I never lose!
The Doctor: You can't even sink the Titanic!

One of the better Christmas specials.
7 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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
