The Dr. Who franchise is experimenting with classic storytelling. No topic is off limits with the new rejuvenated doctor. He is making house calls extraordinaire. The Christmas Carol episode is just the tip of the iceberg of innovative stories written for the show. Dr. Who is truly a great series that is metamorphosing into great TV even with the sci-fi elements.
“It’s as Christmasy as it comes in ‘Doctor Who’ land. It’s loosely based on a ‘Christmas Carol’ with a time traveling twist. Stephen has managed to reinvent it. I think those two things marry quite well together – ‘Doctor Who’ and Christmas.”-Matt Smith (Dr. Who)
