Doctor Who – The Runaway Bride – Christmas Special 2006
A woman in a wedding dress walks into the TARDIS – no, there’s no punchline, it’s the exciting opening to this 2006 Christmas Special. In Donna Noble’s (Catherine Tate) inaugural episode, the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) has to solve the mysterious huon poisoning of this misplaced bride. What was supposed to be the happiest day of her life, turns into betrayal, time travel and battling the Empress, and ends in an offer to accompany the Doctor on his travels. An offer she declines…for now.
