Abigail’s Song (Doctor Who)
Doctor Who is an iconic TV experience I have never fully invested in, but you cannot avoid it. At least not here in the UK. The recent Christmas specials have been something to behold though, adding a much richer blend of poignancy and human spirit. I first saw the 2010 Doctor Who Christmas Special (Matt Smith as the Doctor this time around) simply by it being on the television at the time, a non-scheduled viewing you might say. But it soon sucked me in. Michael Gambon guest stars in a kind of Christmas fairytale, as does the beautiful Katherine Jenkins, lending her acting skills to her incredible vocals. The finale is a magical swirl of emotion, I may or may not have shed a tear, deeply inspired by Jenkins singing the episode out in wonderful fashion. This video is the full song with clips from the episode, watch it, then close your eyes and listen again.
