Doctor Who - The Runaway Bride
So, it's about time I reviewed the Doctor Who Christmas Special, now that Christmas is now well and truly over.
The short review : very flawed but incredibly entertaining.
The long review:
There's a lot wrong with this episode of Doctor Who. Firstly the plot is nonsense, it doesn't make much logical sense. Secondly the monster is a bit rubbish, very cheesey. And, the whole thing lacks originality.
However, it was an event. 7pm on Christmas Day. There is not a bigger TV slot in the UK. It was hyped, it was anticipated, it was like another Christmas present. Which, to me, all added to the excitement.
The good things were very good: David Tennant and Catherine Tate. Both of whom were just fabulous. They made it. I could have watched the two of them all day. And the Tardis chasing the car scene was fantastic too.
So all in all, I did enjoy it a lot, but I hope the new series can come up with some better stories.
