3.0 out of 5 stars For young children only... I don't like the "new" theme either...
My eight year old son loves this adventure, but I see too much "visuals over storyline" here.

There's much to feed the eyes here and, as is normal for a Christmas special, little to feed the mind (well, we're too full of food and Christmas Spirit to care, aren't we). The incidental music often drowns out the dialogue and there's far too much of it too. The...

4.0 out of 5 stars "The Poseidon Robots of Death", 11 Jan 2008
This review is from: Doctor Who: Voyage of the Damned, 2007 Christmas Special [DVD] (DVD)
This is the story that confirmed David Tennant as the most successful Doctor since Sir Tom Baker with over 12 million tuning in.
To begin with I didn't like the slightly re-worked theme. But that's a minor quibble.
This is more akin to the 1st Christmas special "The Christmas Invasion" (still my favourite xmas adventure)than 2006's high paced romp "The Runaway Bride". The story itself is no great shakes, it ticks all the boxes; new monsters, Earth under threat, new companion, Christmas references but doesn't hang together brilliantly.
But this being the Police Box Show, even when the plotting's a little wonky, you can just sit back and enjoy the ride, and it is a good ride.

Tennant is on good form as ever, totally the Doctor, not pining for Martha, but then he didn't love her. Once the crash of the Titanic space ship into the Tardis is sorted, no time is wasted getting him in the thick of things.

There is a good new companion in Kylie (whose acting I was never a fan of, but she's V. good here) although her fate's a little obvious. the host are a little like the Robot's of Death from Uncle Tom's time, but they work well.
There is a mixture of supporting characters, mostly working very well and some nice humour about Earth xmas customs and everyone stying in for fear of more "alien intervention".

There is a touch of disaster movie about the thing and it is clear writer Russell T. is a Poseidon fan.To be honest on the downside, it is a little long and needed better pacing to sustain it's 70 minutes but still enjoyable stuff.

2 important extra pieces are supporting this story. The 1st is a Dr Who Confidential on the Mkaing fo it which is the usual imformative mix of footage and interview and also the Children in Need mini-adventure "Time Crash". Written by Steven Moffat, this witty sketch sess the 5th Doctor appear in the 10th Doctor's tardis and the 2 argue and then try to sort the problem out. Witty dialogue covers topics such as why the 5th Doctor looks older, whether the 10th Doctor is a "fan" and how the Doctor was old when he was younger. A very enjoyable skit!

If you're a big Police Box Show fan, then you'll have fun with this package although it's a less obvious purchase for the more casual viewer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the box., 22 Jun 2008
By 
This review is from: Doctor Who: Voyage of the Damned, 2007 Christmas Special [DVD] (DVD)
This is a Christmas episode. It is written specifically to keep the kids happy Christmas evening while the parents tidy up the wrapping paper.
It does just that.

No, it's not the best episode of Doctor Who.
No, the story won't change your life or your view of the world.
No, Kylie isn't the best Companion ever to be on the show.
But yes, it WILL keep you entertained for the duration.

If you have kids they'll love it.
If you are an old-school fan the buy it for the 'Time Crash' special.

A great story. The Doctor is very well played by Tennant. His co-star (Kylie) is beautiful, bright and tragic. All you could want! The fat couple are really far tooo stereotypes, but I found I wanted to excuse this as they played it so well. As a spoof on disaster movies, it works well. As a Doctor Who, pretty well, as science-fiction maybe not so convincing (Doctor Who becoming more and more a spoof of itself).
