Keep Walking

Voyage of the Damned -- Now online Chazhome.com!

Dr. Who Season 4 is off to a start with the always anticipated Christmas special! This year, it's "Voyage of the Damned"

As the Doctor leaves Earth, the bow of the Titanic crashes through the TARDIS' wall. Amazed, he quickly uses a hand crank to repair the TARDIS walls and push the ship out. The TARDIS then materialises aboard the ship. The Doctor soon learns the Titanic he has collided with is not the famous earth ocean liner, but a luxury spaceship from the planet Sto, orbiting present-day Earth to celebrate the "primitive celebration" of Christmas. He decides to stow away to enjoy the party, only confessing his status as such to waitress Astrid Peth, who has a desire to travel the stars. Read more about it here... Caution -- spoilers!

"Voyage of the Damned" attracted 13.8 million viewers at its peak, with an overnight rating of 12.2 million viewers earning the episode 50% of the total television audience. It was the second most-watched program of Christmas Day, beaten only by the immediately following episode of EastEnders. These were the highest viewing figures for Doctor Who since 1979's City of Death.
