The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe – Christmas Special 2011

Filed under The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe   

Welcome back, merry Christmas, and straight into the reason you’re probably welling up right now. Putting aside the now-mandatory doomed spaceship that now must surely always feature, this was the smallest – yet perhaps the most enchanting – Christmas special we’ve had to date. A story where the threat is not to the universe but to the happiness of one family, and the only real enemy are some misguided and underdeveloped polluters. Any other time of year I would gnaw holes all over this, but it’s Christmas, and today it felt perfect. – The Guardian

It’s a Big Universe, Everything Happens Somewhere

Karen Gillan’s less-than-five minutes of screen time were better acted and more interesting than anything else in the whole Christmas special. I could have easily watched 45 minutes of Amy, Rory, and the Doctor just having Christmas dinner and bickering about time travel ethics. – TOR

Review of Doctor Who ‘The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe’

Filed under The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe   

Every year the Christmas special comes back with something vastly different to the previous year and usually it proves to be on par if not stronger than the one before. ‘The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe’ had the perfect recipe for a Christmas special. It had a simple story that could be easily understood without too much concentration and as specials go, it avoided being sickly sweet. By the end audiences were likely to be left with a warm glow created by the mixture of comedy, tragedy and general festive cheer that never became overly sentimental. – The Independent
