An entertaining romp through history with some pretty scary ghosts. The Doctor meets a depressed Charles Dickens who's wondering if he's wasted his life. Some marvelous conversations ensue about which of his books the Doctor liked and those he didn't think much of. We see Rose enthralled with the idea of a Christmas past and her shock at a servant earning 8 pounds a year - a year! - and she would have been happy with six.
