When the Doctor arrives on the bridge he informs the frightened Midshipman Frame that the Host escorting him are under his control because they have recognized him as the next figure of authority. In actuality, the Host should have identified Midshipman Frame as the next highest authority as the last surviving officer of the crew. The Doctor himself would never have been recognized as an authority figure due to his being identified as a stowaway. See more »

"Information: You are all going to die!"
26 September 2012 | by identitystaysamysterySee all my reviews

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!
