The 17 Best Moments From ‘Doctor Who’ Christmas Specials

This year will mark the tenth Doctor Who Christmas special since the series revival in 2005. It will also be the first special starring the Twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi. Every Christmas special is different; the episode can be cheesy or epic, heartwarming or heartbreaking. But two things are always certain: there will be aliens involved, and it will be very British. So get ready to pop open your Christmas cracker (it’s a UK thing) by checking out these top moments from past specials.
