A highly enjoyable romp based on A Christmas Carol. The daft sharks do not spoil or detract from the clever twists on this old tale, well, for me they didn't. Matt Smith is brilliant once again and the pace of the story is just about right. It's a bit of a tear jerker at the end, so if you're emotionally susceptible to sad endings then be warned. When my mother, who had just walked in from her Christmas nap, asked me at the end whether it was any good, the word 'yeah' stumbled out of my mouth in a broken fashion. Repeated watching is not recommended on this one, however. It is best to leave for a year or two between viewings.
