Time-Flight (NuWho version) was written by RTD and it's the third Christmas Special of NuWho. It stars Neil Tennant, Madonna, Vern Troyer, and the missing link between Matt Smith and Christopher Eccleston.
Despite the name of the boat and the presence of a glamorous female
love-interest special guest co-star, Voyage of the Damned is in fact a ripoff of The Poseidon Adventure, not of Titanic. I'm not sure if I'm upset by that.
A later, superior episode named Midnight serves as a mirror universe version of this special, where the Doctor's rousing speech essentially turns him into the villain of the piece instead of the hero.
At one point, Mr. Copper says "It must be well past midnight, Earth-time. Christmas Day.", even though Earth has different timezones. That should be a perfect example of how retarded the dialogue is in this one.
People really, really like Kylie huh?
All thanks to based Bannakaffalatta.
One of those stories that seriously doesn't get enough hate.
All this in loving memory of Verity Lambert too. Yup, let that sink in.
