Ghosts of Christmas Past…

Now that we have a few of these Christmas Specials under out belt, it seems like a good time to rank the X-mas stories in our eyes…

  1. The Christmas Invasion
  2. The Next Doctor
  3. The Runaway Bride
  4. Voyage of the Damned

The Christmas Invasion scores with us because it has the most heart of the four, a sense of scale to it all and the tease about when the Doctor would finally emerge works.

The Next Doctor also scores well, The Runaway Bride is like Christmas in July. Oh wait… it was. And Voyage of the Damned went the other way from The Next Doctor, going for spectacle over style. Never the best strategy.
