Doctor Who : The Christmas Invasion. Guide for Parental Units of Geeks

Content:

The alien is pretty creepy looking in this one. He looks as if his head were inside out. His skull sort of rests on muscle, or something. Have a look.

Spoiler. Highlight this section to read the content advisory. From here * The Sycorax chops off the Doctor’s hand during the climactic sword fight. This is no worse than when Luke gets his hand cut off. But it is surprising here, which upset young kids. * To here.

It’s pretty clean otherwise. I think they might tidy up the Christmas specials, anticipating a family audience.

Conversation starters:

Christmas is a super-easy time to introduce kids to Bible-y stuff. If they’re already watching Doctor Who, watching one or two of the Christmas specials with them could lead to some very fruitful discussions.

Why is so exciting when the Doctor wakes up at the end? (Something about the fact that all seemed lost until the Doctor woke up.)

Was there ever a time when it seemed like God, the True Hero, was not present? Either a time in history or in your own life?

After the Doctor woke up, he freed the people that the Sycorax were mind-controlling. How did he do that?

(He revealed that they were under a spell and could only be set free through him.) How is this similar to something Christ has done?
