|This is so dire its moronic....|

David Tennant has been such a great doctor, he has suffered though from being given quite a few weak and i would even say irrelevant stories during his run. And Voyage of the damned takes the top pole in regards to rubbish.
Enlightenment and The Robots of Death elements are stolen and weaved, or rather squashed, into a dull as ditch water rehash. I mean, an angel losing a hand just like a robot in Robots is bordering on oh boy...
Even the deaths of the passengers isnt very well performed either. I was expecting a very sad tale, and it was for all the wrong reasons im afraid to say.
Ballakaffalatta is one of the few things that saves this from being a 0 from me. Even Kylie Minogue isnt all that brilliant. And the end scenes is over the top too. This is nothing like a Christmas treat.
I shall review Time Crash seperate. Peter Davison makes a great return to the screen. David plays well off him too, this is real great stuff. The eight minutes of Time Crash are much more entertaining than the main rubbish on this disc....

The story is pretty awful, isn't it? The Hosts are a blatant rip-off of the Robots of Death (the hand in the door and 'kill, kill, kill' particularly) and the part with the Queen is amusing but unnescessary.
The good bits, now. The actors are great, with platinum performances by Geoffrey Palmer, Bernard Cribbins, and of course David Tennant. However, Kylie's role as Astrid is poorly written and her acting is wooden, which is unfortunate for a part that was completely blown up in publicity.
Time Crash, however, is SUPER!, and nothing more can be said about that.

Voyage of the Damned - Like last year's christmas special but on a much grander scale with 'Kylie' instead of 'Catherine Tate'
