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
