after the fantastical season 4...this doesn't compare,
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Next Doctor, 2008 Christmas Special [DVD] (DVD)
empty is the word that comes to mind everytime i have seen this (four times!)and after one of the most greatest finales (and series as a whole)the show has ever had the momentum is suddenly lost and the plot remains basic and simple while not quite as daring as preceeding episodes have been in 2008 nor was it the best cyberman story the show has done.
overall i find it to be basic at it's very best but on the whole it did provide three thrilling sequences.
Miss Hartigan could have been so much more but instead fails at being a villain.
the Thames scene was very very very random but on the whole was enough to keep the christmas feel going about it.
not as great as the previous three specials nor as fab as the adrenaline paced The planet of The Dead, but on the whole not the worst the show can be.
