It's there now. The system goes ahead and submits the post when it sends you to set up the poll, so there's always a brief time where there's no poll.

Tonight's just pips VOTD for me- though it's now pretty clear that if you're a female singing star offered a part in a DW Xmas special, don't expect a regular gig....

Mmh, somehow, The End of Time isn't a real Christmas special for me. Also, what about part 2? If we count both parts, it would be my favourite on the list. Otherwise, it would be The Christmas Invasion.

My intention in regards to the poll was to count both parts together as a single story. But vote however you want.

Re: Favorite Christmas Special

I voted for A Christmas Carol.

I thought it was the most "Christmasy" in tone, with a much more sweet and child-like tone the previous ones. The Doctor was suitably mysterious and goofy at the same time.

A Christmas Carol for being the most in the spirit. However, Runaway Bride is a very close second. The abrasiveness of Donna is the perfect offset to Tennet's hyper-active Doctor.

The Christmas Invasion. Terrific introduction of Tennant.

Re: Favorite Christmas Special

Hmmm, I think I'm seeing a trend developing in the voting.

A Christmas Carol for me, definately. Just edging out Christmas Invasion due to having at least 40% more Doctor.

While VOTD still holds steady at the bottom of my list.

Re: Favorite Christmas Special

"A Christmas Carol," hands-down. A damned good story, with really spectacular performances from Smith, Gambon, and Katherine Jenkins. Plus, it gets mucho bonus points for actually feeling like a Christmas story rather than just being set at Christmas.

Of those, "The Runaway Bride". The rest of them were disappoints to me for varying reasons. But I definitely liked Runaway Bride.

Re: Favorite Christmas Special

I voted for A Christmas Carol, simply because, even though we had a weather controlling machine, giant sky sharks, a crashing (Galaxy-Class!) starship, and flying carriage ride, it still, somehow, someway, seemed less absurd, more toned-down, and had much more whimsy and fantasy than previous Christmas specials. At least the flying carriage ride had a previous explanation tied with other elements (one of them, of course, being the giant sky shark).

EXCELLENT point.

Bingo. This is exactly what I've been wanting from the Christmas specials since beginning but only just received.

Re: Favorite Christmas Special

"A Christmas Carol" by a fair amount. Second would have been "Voyage Of The Damned."
