As we approach RTD2, your dynamic trio take a look at the RTD Christmas specials.
The Christmas specials of Doctor Who written by Russell T Davies (2005-2009) explored humanity and the human cost of war and showed some of the Doctor’s greatest moments of heroism.
In The Christmas Invasion (2005) viewers were introduced to David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor and saw his successful thwarting of the Sycorax invasion of Earth.
In The Runaway Bride (2006) the Doctor reunited with old flame Donna Noble and had to rescue her from the Empress of the Racnoss.
In Voyage of the Damned (2007) the Doctor teamed up with Astrid to defend the Titanic in Space against the hostile alien force known as the Host.
In The Next Doctor (2008) the Doctor encountered his future self and fought off a robotic infestation. In The End of Time (2009), viewers saw the Doctor’s final farewell to his human companions before his regeneration into the Eleventh Doctor.
The specials explored themes of family, love, heroism, and faith while showcasing why Russell T Davies and David Tennant were both so popular with the general public.
Happy Christmas, to all of you at home. Thanks for listening. We’ll be back in the New Year. Albeit with a slightly different line-up. For personal reasons, Sam has decided to step down from the podcast. All is still well with The Bad Wilf family and there will always be a seat at the table for him, should he choose to return.
