News & Interviews for Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time (2017 Christmas Special)
Surely one of the least bombastic, most thoughtful Christmas specials the series has produced.
Given how tumultuous 2017 has been in terms of shifting world politics, divisive policies and the rise of hateful mindsets, the twelfth doctor perfectly sums up how we all should be (as well as the new incarnation) - kind.
Parts of this episode telegraph a bit too much to make the adventure exciting.
The Twelfth Doctor is a great one, but I've long felt that he could've been one of the greatest given the chance. Here, in his final adventure, he finally achieves that status.
A nostalgic, rather moving affair with ghosts past and present walking the screen.
It adds up to a funny, sad, touching, if lightweight episode that sets things up to move on while offering fans a Christmas gift.
Why is this now the most self-referential television series ever, part extended Comic Relief sketch, part seven board games stitched together?
Audience Reviews for Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time (2017 Christmas Special)
Feb 19, 2019I enjoyed this special but was disappointed with the disrespectful way the original Doctor was treated with the writing. William Hartnell would have been upset. I disliked the unnecessary anti-male attitudes. This detracted from a rather good episode.
Jan 10, 2019The thirteenth Doctor's best episode was mostly starred by the First and Twelfth and was damn fun. The episode has lots of breathtaking and hilarious scene and is very joyful.
Jan 06, 2019Awful. Firstly the story was a plotless nonsense. The first Doctor was completely misportrayed and David Bradley could not reproduce Hartnell's performance at all.
Jan 05, 2019Utterly disgraceful treatment of the man that launched the show, and who was immensely proud of his portrayal until his death. To rewrite his character to vilify him as a bigot shows how low the social justice brigade will go. Shameful. And yet better than what was to follow.....
Dec 31, 2018I'm only giving this one 4.5 stars because it needs more Nardole lol
Dec 31, 2018Disgustingly insulting to William Hartnell's performances.
Dec 28, 2018Would have been a good Christmas special if the 1st doctor hadn't been portrayed as sexist.
Dec 22, 2018The casting choices for this Special were excellent. David Bradley was Superb as the First Doctor despite the fact he was portrayed as sexist. which is why I wouldn't give more than 3.5 stars. However, I particularly liked the moment where Capaldi's Doctor lets the cat out the bag to the WW1 soldier that there is another War only to say "Spoilers" once he realises what he said. This episode will always be remembered by me as the day Doctor Who officially died as well as probably being the last Christmas Special to hit our screens.
Dec 15, 2018David Bradley and Peter Capaldi was fantastic. I was heartbroken with 12s last speech. Exceptional episode.
Dec 15, 2018I enjoyed this. I miss Capaldi as the Doctor. My only wish is that they hadnt gone overboard with making the 1st Doctor sexist as a way to make way for a female Doctor. I also wish that 12 hadnt regenerated but thats just my wishful thinking.
