For a number of us, the best thing about Christmas isnt the family get-together, the big dinner or even the present-giving but is, of course, that age-old yuletide tradition of the Doctor Who Christmas Special. This year though theres extra reason to be jumping with festive joy in anticipation as theres so much to look forward to. If you are someone whos already reserved your spot in front of the TV then stick around to remind yourself why youve done so or if youre not, then hopefully at least one of the following reasons will convince you. After all, the reservations on the spot in front of the TV are still open. Unless you have a very big family of Doctor Who lovers
10. It's A Victorian Christmas
Its always nice to watch a Victorian Christmas its where the modern Christmas with the likes of Dickens A Christmas Carol began so any Doctor Who episode set there is bound to suit the season perfectly. Of course, weve had previous examples of a Victorian noel-themed Who before in 2008s The Next Doctor and 2010s A Christmas Carol (although that was another planet) which are both enjoyable specials. So as the Victorian era, Christmas and the Doctor are an already tried-and-tested success it looks like this years The Snowmen is onto a winner.
