Audience Reviews for Doctor Who: The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe

  • Jul 09, 2021
    While this is certainly not as good as the two Christmas stories that surround it (being the wonderful A Christmas Carol and the solid The Snowmen), I really do not understand why many people consider it to be perhaps the worst, some even calling it one of the worst stories of the entire franchise. I'd definitely put this one above The Christmas Invasion, The Runaway Bride, The Next Doctor or The Return of Doctor Mysterio, all of which were varying shades of mediocrity. The Doctor The Widow and the Wardrobe has some solid imagination, some nice moments of sentimental sweetness, a great visual style and a really happy ending that wraps up the semi-incomplete finale of Season 6. I don't make sure to put it on every December like some others, but if I have some time for some extras, it's one I'll happily pop in during the Holiday Season.
