5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite Dr Who Christmas Special, January 1, 2011
This review is from: Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol (DVD)
I am not someone who cries easily and during the David Tennant's time as the Doctor , I became tired of the emotional manipulation that I was meant to feel , but this epidode,genuinely touched me. I loved Matt Smith's performance as the Doctor. I could not keep from laughing at most of his antics but was equally moved by the bittersweet love story that we saw between Abigail and Kurzan.Of all the modern interpretations of a'Christmas Carol' I have seen , this one had the most heart.

I agree, Bernadette. The love story was bittersweet and I was choked up too. I know Kurzan and Abigail were finally going to have Christmas day which also means it would be their last, but I just wanted something magical to happen to change that outcome. I was happy to see that Abigail and Kurzan had their shark-sleigh ride, but it's what follows (unseen to us) that makes this melancholy. I guess the time together is what is important and that every moment is precious. I just wish the Doctor would have intervened with her (Abigail's) condition (as it is Christmas, after all) and that her time in the Tardis would have granted her an indefinite extension. There were, on the other hand, many fun parts which I enjoyed immensely (the Doctor marrying Marilyn Monroe was priceless) and the pictures of them by the Pyramids wearing Fez and sunglasses just brought a smile to my face. I guess it was a happy ending depending on how we look at it. Who knows how long Abigail and Kurzan rode that Shark Sleigh. It's rare that a Sci-Fi/fantasy with a twist of lunacy (in a good way) could cause me to dwell on this particular storyline for so long and so deep. It is, for myself anyway, on par with Kylie Minogue's Christmas special, that it could touch my heart so deep. Thank you for listening/reading. Sorry for rambling.
