A much higher budget than the first two Christmas specials, Voyage of the Damned has a bigger blockbuster feel to it, and there are some truly imaginative moments. The big problem with the story is that behind all the glitz, there's a certain soul-crushing hollowness about it. The story is deeply cynical, but it takes its cynicism over the top with its series of pointless and depressing deaths and at least one depressing survival. Taken together with the weakest motive for trying to destroy the Earth we've seen in Doctor Who and the plot is a bit of a mess.

Overall, there are some enjoyable bits, but this is actually one of the weaker Christmas stories.
