A Doctor Who Christmas Carol
Most British TV fans are familiar with the glory that is the CHRISTMAS SPECIAL (when is the Broadchurch one, exactly?), but there are aspects of Doctor Who—its legitimately all-ages nature; its dual exploration of both loneliness and community; its ease with both terror and fun—that make it feel particularly perfect for holiday viewing.
While you’re watching the Christmas Special this year, saying your goodbyes to non-swearing Capaldi, consider some of these gift options for the biggest Who fan in your life—especially if that’s you. These are gifts for whichever holiday you may celebrate, or, best of all, just to celebrate the fact that this beloved show has finally realized: THE FUTURE IS FEMALE. Click the pictures to purchase!
