Top 6 Doctor Who Holiday Episodes


Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol has been retold in numerous ways, but we think Doctor Who used the classic tale best in their 2010 Christmas special. With Amy and Rory stuck on a crashing space liner, the Eleventh Doctor needs the help of a grouchy old man named Kazran Sardick to save them. Inspired by Dickens’ holiday story, the Doctor tries to alter Sardick’s past to make him nicer and thus more willing to help.

Michael Gambon, who gives an amazing performance opposite Matt Smith, plays Sardick. There are even flying fish and sharks! This is definitely an episode that should be viewed every year.
