Do We Really Need Christmas Doctor Who? Plus: Pertwee’s Blue Plaque

Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor Who

Christmas Doctor Who is coming: but has it overstayed its welcome? Is the appearance of our favourite Time Lord on Christmas Day the televisual equivalent of an unwanted, chain smoking uncle, or even a specially knitted seasonal sweater?

While we retain optimism for The Return of Doctor Mysterio, we wonder whether or not it’s time to refresh Doctor Who‘s annual special and move it — or at least allow the viewer to take it seriously with a less inconsequential story.
