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. Written by Peter Alcock

Trivia

On one of the times that the Young Kazran opens Abigail's stasis unit, he is wearing a scarf similar to the one that Tom Baker wore as the fourth Doctor. See more »

Goofs

When The Doctor travels back in time to visit Kazran in his bedroom, the TARDIS is hidden behind two large doors, with the TARDIS windows clearly visible even when the doors are closed. When he does travel back, he appears in Kazran's recording, but you can still see the TARDIS's window between the doors. See more »

Don't worry, fat fellow will be making rounds later.
25 December 2013 | by (Leesburg, FL) – See all my reviews

4003 people trapped in a cloud belt, and Kazran Sardick (Michael Gambon) will not let them land. They are going to die unless the Doctor (Matt Smith) performs a Christmas miracle.

His solution is another reincarnation of Charles Dicken's classic Christmas Carol.

Gambon was magnificent here. It probably got him the role of Professor Albus Dumbledore after the death of Richard Harris. Well, probably not, but he was great nonetheless.

Sardick is a particularly terrible human being, and a perfect Scrooge. He keeps family members hostage until repay his loans.

Featured is the amazing Katherine Jenkins, who I first say on Dancing With the Stars. She opened the season with the highest ever debut score, and was runner up in the final.

An unusual and pleasant experience.
