Critic Reviews for Doctor Who The Snowmen (Christmas Special)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

It's not quite as action-packed as previous specials but...this festive instalment of the sci-fi series will give the post-dinner snoozers a much-needed boost.

It's a Christmas miracle - the best Doctor Who festive episode yet.

It's Christmastime, which means we were treated to a Doctor Who Christmas special! And after the rather down-beat ending to Season 9, The Husbands of River Song is a cheerful and at times heart-ful counterpoint.

The Snowmen makes the Christmas Special feel fresh again.

This reveal is the best Christmas present the show could ever give me. That the rest of "The Snowmen" is so good and so much fun is just a very welcome bonus.

It's the connections to the past and the inescapable set-up for the future that are the real meat of the episode.

The world always needs the Doctor, but perhaps never more than on Christmas day.
