"Alien", "Total Recall" and Series 5's Amy's Choice (#5.7) are considered strong influences behind the 2014 Christmas Special "Last Christmas". See more »

Moron! Numbskull! Elf!
Of course it's not racist. You are an elf.

Doctor Who's Christmas special episodes are usually cheesy funny happy episodes. I expected nothing else when I saw the trailer featuring Nick Frost as Santa Claus. This episode, while still funny and in the spirits of Christmas, was more than that. I honestly did not expect this episode to be as good as it was. The episode messes with your mind as you don't quite know what is happening at certain points in the episode. It's a combination of the horror movie Alien and the mind bending thriller Inception. It's full of twists and surprises and will keep you watching until the very end. As usual I love Peter Capaldi's portrayal of the Doctor and Jenna-Louise Coleman's performance as Clara is as astonishing as ever.
Worth a watch! I will definitely be re-watching this episode next Christmas!
