Storyline

Taking place around the turn of the millennium, this four part series follows three entwining tales based on the Biblical story of the birth of Jesus Christ. In Nazareth, Joseph, a carpenter, courts teenager Mary. Meanwhile in Bethlehem, a shepherd called Thomas struggles under heavy taxation. And somewhere to the East, Magi gather to discuss the signs of a great event they see foretold in the stars. All their lives are brought together when Mary is visited by an angel and told she will give birth to the son of God. Written by L. Hamre

Great little film, good use of Capaldi

I would classify this as a young adult version of the nativity story, focusing on the journey of Mary and Joseph from a happy, innocent young engaged couple, through the confusion and misery of Mary's weird unplanned pregnancy, to their stunned discovery that they are in fact the parents of a divine child. It's stylish and smart, with an ever so slightly clever contemporary feel and a well-made Hollywood-style high stakes five-act script. Being a nonbeliever who watched it strictly for Capaldi, I experienced it as a sort of really good "Doctor Who" Christmas episode with Capaldi's Doctor undercover in Bethlehem as Balthazar of the Babylonian School of Astronomy. I have to marvel at the dignity with which he mounts a kneeling camel, maintaining his balance as it rises up underneath him, and then shouts, "To Jerusalem!"
