The Christmas special introduces the Fifteenth Doctor, played by Ncuti Gatwa, known for his role in Sex Education.
Gatwa's Doctor showcases remarkable charisma, making it convincing why Ruby Sunday (Millie Gibson) would follow him through space and time.
The plot involves facing carnivorous goblins with Sunday, adding excitement and fantasy elements to the storyline.
Ruby Sunday's origin story unfolds on Christmas Eve, where a stranger leaves her on the steps of a church, setting the stage for a unique adventure.
Ruby seeks her birth parents with the help of Davina McCall, adding a heartfelt touch to the storyline.
The narrative takes a fun turn with mischievous goblins causing accidents, turning Christmas decorations into deadly weapons.
The special incorporates CGI goblins, contributing to the fantasy aspect, though their impact may vary.
The goblins serve as a means to find the Doctor a new companion, introducing Ruby Sunday as a potential addition to the Tardis.
