Tis the season to be jolly! In the first of a series of festive treats, Swithun Dobson, P.G. Bell, Sarah Burrow and – specially flown in from the North Pole – James Willetts revisit the very first Doctor Who Christmas Special, ‘The Christmas Invasion’.
Remember when the show was still trying to prove itself? When David Tennant was the new kid on the block? When we had yet to visit an alien world? It all seems so long ago now, so how does this yuletide special hold up to scrutiny? Join us as we discuss killer Christmas trees, why the Doctor doesn’t like Christmas and try to think of some other Christmas-themed entertainment that’s actually Christmassy. (Here’s a clue… Die Hard).How did you like this blast from Christmas past? We want to hear from you! Head down into the comments to share your thoughts, and be sure to come back next week for our next Christmas Special commentary – ‘The Runaway Bride’.
