Which is Your Favourite post 2005 Christmas Special?

We have now had 10 Christmas specials since 2005 featuring 3 different Doctors, David Tennant, Matt Smith and now Peter Capaldi – so which is your favourite?

    Hard To choose but my top 5 would be:

    1. End Of Time (The regeneration was way too long, but matt’s first scene was epic)
    2. Last Christmas
    3. The Christmas Invasion. (Would love to see the sycorax return again in the future)
    4. The Time Of The Doctor
    5. The Snowmen

    Weakest one in my opinion is the doctor, the widow and the wardrobe by quite a distance

    I don’t see why it gets so much hate. Yeah, the resolutions to the arcs were a bit rushed, and nearly everything between the end of the opening credits and the Doctor and Clara landing on Trenzalore was largely unimportant, forgettable, or exposition, but it still had a solid story, enjoyable characters, and a great regeneration.

    Last Christmas was abysmal, and quite possible the worst one of them all, in my opinion.

    Not everyone has the same opinion. Personally, I found The Doctor, The Widow, and the Wardrobe to be disappointing due to its mostly flat characters and cheap resolution (though the bit where the Doctor came back for Amy and Rory was well done).

    For me, the worst Christmas specials were The Runaway Bride and The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe, the rest were great!

    The only best Christmas specials were the Christmas invasion, voyage of the dammed, the next doctor, the end of time, I guess A Christmas Carol wasn’t that bad! And the snowmen and also the time of the doctor wasn’t bad aswell plus Last Christmas was quite good

    That was the worst christmas special ever! It was just boring and a waste of time

    Come on!, the doctor, the widow and the wardrobe was a great episode!, doctor who and narnia! Why do people hate it so much?!

    No I think they chose it because they think it is the best one

    Okay I’m sorry, but The Snowmen does not deserve to be that low… It’s really favourited everywhere else. I honestly think it should overtake TotD, The End of Time and Voyage of the Damned AT LEAST.

    Have 16.38% of voters picked ‘Last Cheristmas’ just because it’s the latest Christmas Special ?? . . . . . SERIOUSLY !! 😀

    My personal favorite in ‘The Runaway Bride’, no Christmas Special is more fun and enjoyable for me then that one, thou ‘The Christmas Invasion’ or ‘Voyage of the Damned’ do come close.

    Agreed Voyage of the Damned and End if Time were awful. The Snowmen was a really good story.

    The Snowmen. Thought it would be higher, especially over Voyage of the Damned and The End of Time…

    The first time I watched Time of the Doctor, I was a little disappointed. ..but I suppose the Day of the Doctor was impossible to follow. However, I watched Time of the Doctor again recently and really enjoyed it. Moffat did well to weave the story together and resolve prior arcs and as you say, Matt Smith was wonderful.

    Not sure if it was the worst, but it definitely had a weak story overall, and an abysmal regeneration.

    I went for the time of the doctor as Matt Smith was stunning and it was Capaldi’s first episode (where he spoke). I just love the storyline of the episode and all the characters are played really well.

    The worst was the End of Time….I actually felt sorry for DT bowing out with such an awful story.

  • Dalek The Supreme

    A Christmas Carol. Matt Smith’s first Christmas spell was a fun-filled episode with a great story, a great antagonist, and a wonderfully Christmas feel to it.

    mine are as follows,

    1.End Of Time
    2.The Christmas Invasion
    3.Runaway Bride

    For me its a matter of looking at each episode and seeing which one captured the feel, look and spirit of Christmas! For me its easy The Snowmen. It was Christmas but not too much focus, it was magic, it was heart warming and for me thats how a christmas episode should be! My top three are :-
    1. The Snowmen
    2. A Christmas Carol
    3. Voyage of the Damned.

    Christmas Invasion is my favourite. I’m going to rewatch Last Christmas because I was very impressed with it so it might make it into the top three which are currently:
    1. The Christmas Invasion
    2. Voyage of the Damned
    3. A Christmas Carol
    Last Christmas might make it there!

    I thought that was boring

    The End of Time

  • The Silent Silent

    December 26th, 2014 - 6:45pm

  • Doctor Stu

    December 25th, 2014 - 7:29pm
