Another Atrocious Christmas "Special",
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Runaway Bride, 2006 Christmas Special [DVD]  (DVD)
I don't know why every Christmas I expect it to be different, expecting Dr Who to hit the heights as shown in episodes like The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances, The Girl In The Fireplace and Blink. Yet every Christmas the same old turkey is delivered to us on Christmas Day. We don't get a special episode, we don't even get a quality episode, we get the most awful "adventure" of the entire year starring David Tennant as the Doctor.
This year was quite possibly the worst with Catherine Tate being especially terrible. You can't help but spend the whole time waiting for her to do her own so-called comedy " Am I Bovvered!" routine.
Doctor who is much better than this, if only they could capture that magic more than once or twice a year.
