In this Christmas special of doctor who, the always spectacular tenth doctor is traveling alone when he arrives on a luxurious space cruise called the Titanic named after...well, the titanic. The Doctor meets and interesting crew of characters who have to fight for survival, which ends tragically for some. This episode is by far my favorite Christmas special. With all the extra time they have sometimes the writers don't know what to do with it. (The Doctor the widow the wardrobe for example) But in this one the suspense and humor kept the episode lively the whole time. There are some villainous angels (blink?!?) but slightly different in character. These ones can move when you see them. They bring some scary moments in to the episode which I highly appreciate being a fan of the scary episodes who. So long story short, VOTD is frightening, funny, and slightly sad, which is everything a good episode of doctor who needs!
