Lucie Miller ist immer noch sauer wegen der Ereignisse in “Death In Blackpool”, zumindest glaubt das der Doktor. Er glaubt, dass er ihr ein Weihnachtsfest schuldet, nachdem er ihr das letzte ruiniert hat. Aus diesem Grund lädt er sein Familie in die Tardis zum Weihnachtsessen ein, also seine Enkelin Susan und deren Sohn Alex. Doch plötzlich taucht da so ein seltsamer Fisch auf, der durch die Dimensionen springt und auch der Doktor ist gleich mehrfach vorhanden.

OK, zwei Weihnachtsepisoden in ein...more
"look Lucie SOCKS!"
So at first I wasn't sure about Susan in a comedy Christmas adventure. But it really feels like after all of Susan's trauma she really deserved it. I normally don't like the comedy 8th Doctor episodes but this was quite fun. (Though could have done without the First Christmas narration!)
I liked how Susan kept reminding the Doctor that he left her and it wasn't her choice to stay,except in a way it was and that kind of removed her agency and it was probably better to have sai...more

Reminded me a little of the Doctor Who tv christmas special from 2010 with the fish, but apart from that, it was a nice little story. My last 'encounter' with Lucie Miller was in "Death in Blackpool" where at the end she decided not to travel with the Doctor anymore, so I was surprised to see her back (perhaps I should listen to stories in order, in future!). Nice to have the Doctor with his family - granddaughter Susan, and great-grandson Alex (Paul McGann's son, Jake).

This was an enjoyable chr...more

Such a cute little TARDIS domestic story.

I am not a huge fan of McGann's Doctor, but this time he seemed to me to nail the character of the moody, neurotic, somewhat needy Time Lord who is trying to do a little bit of good. I wasn't wild about the plot - the idea of pets taking over the Tardis has been done before, and done better; and I'm not convinced by the younger McGann. But as a story about the Eighth Doctor I thought it worked well enough.
Silly, sentimental Christmas story with Lucie, Susan and Alex

It was an okay adventure but not a great one.
