Doctor Who: The Christmas Invasion Reviews:

The Christmas Invasion is a wonderful episode of Doctor Who. It's funny, mysterious, the Sycorax create for nice villains, and the ending is phenomenal. Harriet Jones was once again an nice character; Penelope Wilton is a really nice actress. The stage where all of the folks are being controlled by the Sycorax and are about to jump was executed very well by the directors- it was really tense and a dark turn for the episode. The spinning Christmas trees and the brass users were also memorable. The Christmas Invasion was a 7/10 for the first 30 or so minutes. The last half of the episode was where it got really, really good. One of my favourite scenes of the episode was when David Tennant came out of the Tardis and challenged the Sycorax to a battle. I liked Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor (he was my introduction to Doctor Who), but Tennant just owns the role and relishes each moment on screen. From the moment he came out of the Tardis to the moment the episode ended I couldn't stop smiling. I love action and war scenes in Doctor Who (which doesn't do much of them), so it was wonderful to see the Doctor duel with the Sycorax on top of the spaceship. I loved the ending, where the ship leaves and Harriet Jones, the Doctor, Mickey, Jackie and Rose all exchange hugs and boast about the conquer of the aliens. That stage was just so awesome; the characters are all so great, and the stage was a really feel-good ending to the episode. Harriet Jones calling in Torchwood to fire at the ship was a nice scene; it was well acted and it develops her hero by showing how willing she is to hold the globe and Britain safe. Billie Piper and David Tennant have nice chemistry as well, and the part when Harriet Jones calls the Tenth Doctor "My Doctor" was really nice.The Christmas Invasion is cute much everything I like about Doctor Who in 60 minutes: it has nice action and war sequences, hilarious moments, well rounded, memorable and recurring characters, nice visuals, a feel-good ending, AND it's a wonderful and really fun method to introduce the fresh Doctor, with the excellent mix of camp and dramatic sequences. The Christmas Invasion isn't a excellent 10/10, but it gets cute close!


The 2005 Doctor Who Christmas unique was a gamble from the very beginning. Sure, Russell T. Davies had successfully resurrected Britain's most famous sci-fi show, with the aforementioned unique and a second season getting confirmed after only one episode had aired, but a lot of that had to do with Christopher Eccleston's oddball but charming work as the Ninth Doctor. Therefore, the sight of him leaving the present after just one season meant whoever replaced him would have to do a brilliant job at the very least. Luckily, Scotsman David Tennant (Casanova in the eponymous Davies-written BBC miniseries) was up to the challenge, and The Christmas Invasion marks a terrific debut for his tenure as the Tenth Doctor.So, here's the story: it's Christmas Eve 2005, and a mysterious spaceship is in orbit right above World for a change. Newly elected Prime Minister Harriet Jones (Penelope Wilton) wishes to take matters into her own hands (something about an organization named Torchwood), but it becomes cute clear the planet is going to need a miracle. Of course, the TARDIS happens to have landed in London, but unfortunately the Doctor is suffering from regeneration side effects, slipping in and out of consciousness as time begins to run out, leaving it to Rose, Jackie and Mickey to deal with the alien threat.With no time to mourn Eccleston, The Christmas Invasion jumps straight back into the action, delivering an exciting threat, nice guest work (Wilton never disappoints) and the usual nice squad effort from Noel Clarke, Camille Coduri and Billie Piper, showing they may have lost their Doctor but not their passion and will to have fun with the material. And a lot of fun there is, mostly in relation to the fresh Doctor: in particular, Coduri has the privilege of getting away with a naughty joke about Time Kings having two hearts ("Anything else he's got two of?") and a fun "Doctor who?" gag when confronted with the Doc's fresh face.Which begs the question: what about Tennant taking over from Eccleston? Well, he pulls off the job with the expected mixture of quirkiness, giddiness and plain Britishness, ditching his own Scottish accent (and Eccleston's Northern tones) for a London voice that indicates he's not scared to create the role his own. No more "fantastic" then (the stage explaining why he dropped the catchphrase was deleted from the TV broadcast, but is accessible on the DVD), but it's still, rather unmistakably, the Doctor. Not only is the character's chemistry with Rose intact, he also deserves kudos for not only saving the globe while trying not to lapse into a coma, but also for spending 90% of the episode in his PJs and making it look cool in that special Doctor Who way.In a nutshell, The Christmas Invasion is proof that RTD's formula for the Doctor still works, and with Tennant on board, the chances appear endless. Quite fitting for a time-and-space-traveling alien, don't you think?


New from a transformation, the Doctor and Rose return to World to spend Christmas with her family. However when trees and Santa's begin testing up it is apparent that this is no ordinary Christmas and some sinister force is at work. Still in a weakened state, the Doctor loses consciousness and cannot be revived by Rose. Meanwhile a spaceship positions itself above London and uses some power to control a huge section of the population and create them stand on high buildings, ready to jump. The Prime Minister is desperate but seems left with no option but to create a deal with the strong Sycorax.I watched this unique again last week on UK Gold, away from the hype and worry that came with it the first time round. This was the bridge between the "first" "new" series and the second or, more importantly, the bridge between Eccleston being the Doctor and David Tennant taking over the reins. As such there was everytime going to be an element of making that leap and then also the emphasis on Tennant making the role his own so that the fresh series should just begin with the majority of the fuss over and done with. The first half of the unique keeps the Doctor tucked away and builds the plot while also using this as a method of emphasising his entrance when it comes. The storyline is a nice one which does more or less manage to bring in all the elements that the family audience (and large audience at that time of the year) requires. Although it is obviously restricted by the kid element of the audience, the tension is built well and the aliens have a genuine threat. The spinning trees etc were all a bit silly but I suppose that does seem to come with the zone now.Of course the large thing in the unique was Tennant and I have to tell that this didn't victory me over to him. As his seasons at the helm continue I have come to like him more but I suspect that has an element of me accepting him rather than him being brilliant. Here I felt he was too over-the-top and I wanted someone to say him that just because it was Christmas it didn't mean he had to go over the top as if he was in panto at Blackpool. This is maybe a bit harsh but in the series he tends to receive a mix of this and quieter items to work with to act as balance – for most of his short time here he does rather overplay it somewhat. Of course it works for the kind of thing this unique is aiming for but viewers who like their sci-fi to be a tiny darker will have been worried by his appearance in this manner – particularly coming after the slightly grittier turn from Eccleston. Piper continues to be as nice as she was in her first season and it is to her credit that she does pick up well with her fresh co-star. Wilton Jones was nice as the PM but Clarke's Mickey continues to grate somewhat.Overall then an nice unique that does the two things it sets out to do (entertain the family and receive the fresh Doctor in the door and settled before the fresh season starts) and does it in a reasonable nice method even if no one part of it is done really well. Fits well with the tone of the season that followed it though.
