The First Christmas (1998)
The post The First Christmas from the Animals’ Perspective in The Star Trailer appeared first on ComingSoon.net.
Before tonight's premiere, here's our take on the past seven years of "Doctor Who" Christmas specials, ranked from best to worst:
'The End of Time'
This is a given. David Tennant's send-off was the perfect goodbye to his Doctor, and his final words -- "I don't want to go" -- still make fans emotional to this day. Add that to the fact that the two-parter took viewers to Gallifrey, and this is the best Christmas special yet.
'A Christmas Carol'
The first Christmas number one actually on the subject of Christmas came in 1955, in the fourth year of the charts’ existence, with “Christmas Alphabet” by pop singer Dickie Valentine. However, it was only really in 1973 when the idea of Christmas songs gunning for number one was established, when Slade released their timeless “Merry Xmas Everybody” in a deliberate (and successful) ploy, beating out the other big song of the year; Wizzard’s wondrous “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday”. The following year saw Mud’s “Lonely This Christmas” and two years after that we had “When A Child Is Born” from Johnny Mathis. A
Yes! Comedy Central has ordered a third season of the amazing Key & Peele. I just wish Comedy Central would do something to guarantee that we have Luther, President Obama's anger translator for the next four years.

Whitney Houston will be remembered for her voice, her hit songs, her charismatic presence. As someone who has spent my life sharing equal passion for music and movies, it's particularly noteworthy to me that the biggest hit I associate Houston with is intrinsically tied to a film. Judging by the number of "Whitney, I will always love you" tweets from celebrities and fans on Saturday, I'd say I'm not alone in thinking of her big voice mostly in "I Will Always Love You," which is inseparable from "The Bodyguard."
My late mother was a huge fan of Dolly Parton, who originally wrote and recorded the song that would become a huge hit for Houston on the soundtrack to "The Bodyguard,
The premise of the 2010 Doctor Who Christmas special is stil a secret, but judging from the trailer there's evidence of some plot elements borrowed from Charles Dickens' tale of A Christmas Carol. Michael Gambon appears to be playing a Scrooge-like character and The Doctor may be substituting for the part of one of the ghosts from Dickens' classic tale. Apart from that, I have no idea why Amy Pond is dressed back up in her
