Dr Who christmas special usually fills me with dread. I have a few problems with the concept but since being rescued from kiddy tv shows that the bbc can do decent stuff when it desires it instead of the usual stuff in a pub when the childrens tv audience is not being pandered to.
This normally fail episode of Dr Who usually suffers from VERY LOUD Orchestra Music, some odd stories and a meh from me. 2010 was different – stealing from that author i hate (my blog)
Its music was tamed, had a decent story despite a ship in peril syndrome that has been copied before and had a ending which had a positive outcome and a negative one.
Strange without having to do my ‘meh’.
