Synopsis: It’s the 2015 Doctor Who Holiday Special!
When a mysterious Christmas card materializes on the TARDIS console, Clara and the Doctor are pulled into an interdimensional adventure of astoundingly festive proportions!
Review: This issue is an unmitigated Christmas treat. George Mann and Cavan Scott wrote a wonderful holiday story that reconnected Twelve with his roots. Readers got evil classic companion nutcrackers, a chase through dimensionally transcendental Christmas cards (Mariano Laclaustra’s artistically inspired highpoint), a marvelous scene in which Twelve charmed hostile snakes with Two’s recorder, and much more. All of this culminated in Twelve showing an old enemy mercy and understanding.
I do have one complaint: It was difficult to follow the dialogue bubbles through the shifting Christmas cards and the game of Snakes & Ladders. All in all, though, the Doctor Who 2015 Holiday Special was an excellent festive effort.
