The Doctor and Christmas - What more could you want?,
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe, 2011 Christmas Special [DVD] (DVD)
This episode was certainly a Christmas treat - Unlike many of the Christmas specials in the past, it had a very festive feel to it; it was a one off episode which anyone could enjoy, and it certainly felt like Christmas to me...Yet, at the same time, it seems to be a feel good episode which can be watched throughout the year, if desired.
Matt Smith gives a stunning performance in this episode, as do the guest stars (Especially Claire Skinner!), and the storyline is a very interesting, family friendly one. There are some beautiful scenes held within this episode, and it's well worth a watch. It's certainly a Christmas treat, and could make an excellent Christmas present, yet I've enjoyed it throughout the year. The DVD is worth the buy, and as a wonderful addition to any DVD collection, especially around the festive period!
