Review

“A scary, tense and claustrophobic adventure” is Steven Moffat's promise to RT for his hotly anticipated special, Last Christmas. “It's The Thing meets Miracle on 34th Street!” Expect creepy monsters attacking a scientific base at the North Pole, with a big dollop of Santa on the side.

Quite whether Father Christmas belongs in the Doctor Who universe will be a matter for you. Clips aired so far show Nick Frost playing the part with all the pizzazz of a peeved van driver. He heads up a guest cast including Michael Troughton (son of second Doctor, Patrick) and former Corrie and Strictly star Natalie Gumede. Let it snow!

Summary

Peter Capaldi is back for his first festive adventure as the time-travelling adventurer - and the good news is that, having said goodbye to Clara at the end of the last episode, she's back too, helping him fend off terrifying creatures attacking an Arctic base. Even better, Shaun of the Dead and Mr Sloane actor Nick Frost co-stars as Santa Claus - a character glimpsed just as the credits rolled last time around - while fans of the classic series will be delighted by the appearance of Michael Troughton, son of Second Doctor Patrick Troughton.
