It is a week from today until Christmas and that means the 11th Doctor Who Christmas Special. We take a look back at last years Christmas Special which was Peter Capaldi's first.

“Santa Claus does not do the scientific explanation.”
It’s Christmas and everyone is gathering together with friends and family to celebrate the festive holiday either for religious beliefs or not. But most of all a huge number of people around the world celebrate Christmas with something altogether different in mind and that would be the annual Doctor Who Christmas Special. In fact this was the 10th year in a row that Doctor Who fans will be watching a Doctor Who episode on Christmas day and this time will be treated to the first one with Peter Capaldi as The Doctor. Last Christmas is also boasting a unique meet up between The Doctor and a certain resident of the North Pole. But was it good as a Christmas pudding or will it be a Scrooge and give us a humbug.
Last Christmas was a very entertaining and a fun Christmas Special to watch. Right from the get go when Clara sees Santa and his crashed sled it had fun written all over it. Last Christmas was an all-around enjoyable Christmas Special that helps us forget the failures of Christmas past.
