Rate: "Voyage of the Damned"

Post by Patrick on Tue Dec 06, 2011 4:59 am

Christmas with the Doctor, once again. This year, he becomes acquainted with a waitress named Astrid (who really had some companion potential), a cruise line owner named Max, and a diminuative red alien named Ban... Banne... Bannekaf... named something with MANY syllables.

So what did you think of the Christmas 2007 Doctor Who Special?

It was a solid Christmas Day romp. However I loathed the Kylie/Pixie Dust nonsense at the end, so at the end of the day it's 3/5 from me.

Not sure the ratings (13.31 mio) will ever be beaten.

I admire the mentality that says "Let's make a blockbuster disaster film on a DW budget!" and, for my money, I thought they pulled it off pretty well. I'd agree that pixie dust Astrid was a little silly, but it provided the Doctor with a nice lesson (which he almost learned) and a good bit of dialogue. Good cast, great visuals and lots of big adventure.
