The Doctor Who Christmas specials have been a mainstay of the series since David Tennant’s debut fighting the Sycorax over London. But why is Christmas such a big deal in the Doctor Who world, and to British culture in general? What have been the best forays into dealing with the series at the holidays? Do we really need Christmas specials about Christmas itself? And of course: how cool was Peter Capaldi hanging with Santa? We’ll take a deep dive into the Doctor Who Christmas specials and what they’ve brought to the series.
