In the week end I have been rewatching the Children in Need special “Time Crash” and “Voyage of the Damned”.
“Time Crash” is a short special, in short the TARDIS runs Amok and the fifth Doctor (Peter Davison) appears. Quite fun and the “You were *my* Doctor” is a nice tribute.
One of the highlights in “Voyage of the Damned” for me was seeing, for the first time, Bernard Cribbins’ character Wilf – the alien hunter and amateur astronomer in the middle of a deserted London. A nice bit of continuity, even if that is not known at the first viewing, later we learn that he is Donna’s Grandpa. I generally enjoyed the story, even if it was not the greatest of Doctor Who.
One thing I really liked about The Voyage of the Damned was that it’s one of the times when the Doctor doesn’t get things his own way. In the end he can’t safe Astrid. It’s a touching moment, and gives David Tennant a lot of scope to show his abilities as an actor in a way we don’t usually see them.
Yes, it does, though he is known to have a good range it is good to see it with The Doctor.
