Complete with a sleigh-ride with merry bells ringing and a flying shark with teeth that bite, this Doctor Who hour provides just what anyone, child or adult, fan or non-fan of the Who cult, wants.

A Christmas Carol is all about and dodges clichéd ways to adapt it, unless there's another version out there with time travel, shifting memories, and flying fish I don't know about.

Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol is a seriously fun ride, and will be enjoyed just about equally by longtime fans and anyone who's somehow never experienced the Doctor Who phenomenon.

[Steven] Moffat's adventure is a perfectly paced romp that lives up to the hype both as a great Doctor Who tale and yes, the most Christmas-sy Christmas Special we've ever seen.

[Steven Moffat ] gives us a festive fairy tale.

A Christmas Carol is, ultimately, a fitting end to one of Doctor Who's very strongest years.

    I love this episode in every way possible! The storyline is fantastic, with great characterization, humor and it even made me cry. It was visually beautiful and the music was gorgeous. My family's new holiday favorite, even over the classics like 'White Christmas" This just leaves us all in the Christmas spirit and appreciating time with our loved ones.
