It’s Christmas Day on a remote human colony and the Doctor is hiding from Christmas Carols and Comedy Antlers. But when a crashed spaceship calls upon the Doctor for help, he finds himself recruited into River Song’s squad and hurled into a fast and frantic chase across the galaxy. King Hydroflax (Greg Davies) is furious, and his giant Robot bodyguard is out-of-control and coming for them all! Will Nardole (Matt Lucas) survive? And when will River Song work out who the Doctor is? All will be revealed on a starliner full of galactic super-villains and a destination the Doctor has been avoiding for a very long time.

    I miss River. Nice to see them doing something with that character again.
  • Can’t find it in library

    By itunesaddict2332
    Well, I can find it, but only after digging deep into past seasons and Christmas specials mixed up in “No Season” mixed up with previous series. Please fix this confusion Apple, add a category for Doctor Who Specials.
  • Still waiting for it

    By bookyman63
    Its10am, And still NO episode to download! But, looking on the trailers at Youtube, it looks good...
  • Where is it?

    By Baba rice

  • Christmas Spoilers

    By BiggerOnTheOutside
    So, my Christmas was spoiled by the knowledge that al us fine folks in Region 1 (US & Canada) won’t be able to DL the episode until February 23, 2016. Of course this happened after I paid for it. Guess we’ll have to go to the cinema after all;-)
  • What happened?

    By evilken2007
    It is the Christmas special for 2015, It is 12/25 at 20:39 and I cannot want it, and I paid for it. What good is a Christmas special if you cannot watch it on Christmas...

  • Amazing

    By 8ultraman8
    This was one of the best, if not the best Christmas Special I've ever seen!


  • Super irritated

    By Stephanie Phelps
    I really wish i could watch the christmas special, i finally caved and bought the special for a shocking 4.99 after already purchasing the season 9… shouldn’t this be included… but thats not why i am so irritated this premiered back in December and it is now February and i am still not able to watch it… when will it be available iTunes… It should still be listed as a preorder….so i have no reviews on the episode just a warning for future buyers…
  • Season Only!?

    By Emcee Cloud
    I bought the full collection of the 2015 Christmas Special videos, but only two of the five are able to be downloaded. Unless I'm quite mistaken, it is now well after December 25, 2015, the original air date of the episode. WHY CAN'T I DOWNLOAD THE EPISODE!?
  • Can't download or watch it after I purchased the season

    By hawkgirl05
    Says "season only" and the it's already purchased!
  • Fun, of course

    By Roland Deschai
    The season was the best in years, the special really shows how Capaldi has embraced the role at last. It was touch and go for a while but. He is the Doctor. No new Who until 2017 so pace yourself. The Steven Moffet leaves as show runner and the show might drift back to be more familiar to long time fans. Moffet has told the same stories two or three times now -- eagle eyed viewers will spot the recycling. Clara's dead but doing fine with her own TARDIS. Maize Williams really is more substantial than her stills reflect. Spin of snow 'class' comimg,soon to Beeb America. And will no doubt fail to satisfy your who hunger. Set at the Cole Hill school and intended for young adults as Dr Whomonce was. A Capaldi drop in to establish tie in, then rubbish
  • Love this one!

    By Lcempj
    24 years... I wonder if the next companion will be the Doctor and River kids. That is enough time for them to have a few kids together.
  • Just great!

    By Rubidium
    The perfect end to a nearly perfect season of Dr. Who! Full of laughs, surprises, and not a few “feels”, this episode goes down as probably the best Xmas special in the history of the show. Not to be missed.
  • Best

    By Muffin55555Lynn
    Best Doctor Who Christmas special yet! The writers continue to outdo themselves.
  • Great season ender

    By mpy6348
    Not quite as good as "Last Christmas" but still a winner!
  • Should have included it as part of the Season 9

    By Joe-A
    What a rip off that they sell this separately from the rest of the season.
  • SO GOOD!

    By BJWanlund
    No “spoilers”, but oh my goodness… that was SO good! Well, WELL worth the $4.99 I paid for it!
