It’s Christmas, so we’ve recorded a special seasonal podcast. Time travel back to 2006 with Christian Cawley and Brian Terranova as they talk all the way through The Runaway Bride, starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate.

This episode went out on Christmas Day evening to an audience of 9.35 million viewers, and famously split fans, some of which adored Catherine Tate’s first full appearance (following the cameo at the end of Doomsday) while others were less than enthused.

A quick look in the Ultimate Regeneration compendium of Doctor Who reviews from the RTD era reveals what Christian thought at the time:

“This wasn’t a ‘fun adventure for all the family’. It had all of the worst excesses of Russell T Davies’ take on Doctor Who sliced up, repackaged as something new and different and frankly empty. Without a strong lead, Doctor Who would be dead in the water. That’s worth thinking about. He shouldn’t really have to put up with nonsense like this.”

But what does Christian think of The Runaway Bride 13 years later?

So get ready to hit play. We’ve even provided a count-in so you can watch the episode along with us. What’s more, we’d love to hear your thoughts on rewatching The Runaway Bride, so leave them below.

Merry Christmas! To celebrate glad tidings on Earth and goodwill to all men – not to mention Time Lords defeating alien invasions — we bring you our own commentary of The Christmas Invasion, 2005’s very own season special that finally introduced David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor.
