Doctor Who, "The Next Doctor"

TARDIS in the snow, originally uploaded by monikalel42.

The Christmas special was very good, with a wonderful atmosphere of Victorian England. There was lots of mystery about who the title character, (played by David Morrissey) was and what the Cybermen were doing there. David Tennant and Velile Tshabalala are excellent as "The Next Doctor"'s companions battling Miss Hartigan (Dervla Kirwan) and the Cybermen. This episode begins a new era in the program after David Tennant's announced departure. In the 2010 specials, the Doctor will travel alone, perhaps in a new direction from the previous four seasons' emphasis on present day London since companions Rose, Martha and Donna have moved on from their travels with the Doctor.
