Episode 50: The Curse of the Christmas Special

‘Tis the festive season, and with nights drawing in, Time Ram celebrates the fine tradition of a good old spooky story, told around a crackling log fire. And what better way of doing this, than by taking Torchwood’s ‘Something Borrowed’ and The Sarah Jane Adventures’ ‘The Man Who Never Was’ and swapping them between series? So we get the Sarah Jane kids dealing with a pregnant bridezilla, while events at Torchwood force Ianto to grow to 30 stories high! And that’s before we even get to radiophonic blarting, intravenous 1973 and K9’s sonic lipstick!
