The Doctor and her companions save Christmas from a contemptible coup by the cantankerous Krampus! But is everyone's favorite Time Lord listed under 'Naughty'... or 'Nice'? The second half of a fun, festive sci-fi story from Jody Houser (Stranger Things, Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows).

    This, thanks to all at Titan Comics, is the Doctor Who Christmas Special we've deserved for the past couple of years. You cannot let these two comic books pass you by " they're both fantastic and are needed in any Doctor Who fan's collection. Read Full Review

    This second book of the story arc scores really high on the Holiday fun factor despite the fact that it was sort of a predictable story, but with the solid artwork and the feel-good factor. You'd have to be a total Grinch not to go along with it. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Dec 19, 2019

    The Holiday Special of Doctor Who came in the form of a comic book this year, and I couldn't be happier. The adventure in this book is filled with sci-fi mystery, hilarious humor, and heartwarming holiday cheer. And, with seemingly more tales of The Doctor to come from this creative team, they've got a new fan aboard their TARDIS. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Dec 13, 2019

    Bearing a lovely seasonal wrap up for the Doctor and friends Doctor Who: Holiday Special Volume 2gives a bit of that holiday warmth to its story. It often feels likeDoctor Whois one of the few major franchises that still delights in leaning right into that classic Christmas season warmth. No surprise spin, or new angle of approach. Just that unfiltered sense of "lets be thankful for the year that was, and the one that is coming" joy that the holidays are supposed to be about. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Dec 16, 2019

    A great work of festive entertainment but instantly forgettable and mediocre compared to previous outings. For a bit of festive cheer give it a read. Read Full Review
