Present day London: Donna (Catherine Tate) is parading down the aisle to be married to Lance (Don Gilet), when suddently, she is teleported off to Doctor Who's (David Tennant) time-and-spaceship the TARDIS, and now the good Doctor has his hands full getting her back to her wedding or, after that doesn't work, at least to her wedding reception - which isn't made any easier by the fact that he has to fight a bunch of Robot Santas ...

Ultimately though, the Doctor finds out that Donna is full of huon particles, an energy form more ancient than the earth itself that shouldn't be existing anymore (at least not outside the TARDIS), and which makes the Doctor suspect some alien meddling ... and right he was - as he, Donna and Lance find out when investigating some catacombs beneath Donna and Lance's company's office building -, the Empress of Racnoss (Sarah Parish), last of the Racnoss, intelligent but all devouring beings that look like giant spiders, has set up shop here to revive her race that was caught in the center of earth upon earth's creation, and therefore she needs a human fed with huon particles - Donna, who has been fed with them because her hubby to be Lance turns out to be a traitor fighting on the Empress' side.

Ultimately however, Lance falls to the center of the earth, the Doctor drowns the Racnoss emerging from the center redirecting water from River Thames (but drying out the river in the process), and the Empress, making a getaway in her starlike starship, is shot down by simple, conventional tanks ... and once more, Christmas ... er, planet earth, is saved.

 

Not without its charm and interesting setpieces (the carchase involving an Robot Santa and the Doctor's TARDIS that looks like a vintage police phonebox is quite remarkable and great fun), the overall feeling of this episode - despite the inclusion of comedienne Catherine Tate - is rather cheesy, too much time is spent with characters trying to express their deep, but rather clichéd, emotions, while the comic aspects of the story - like the Robot Santas, which I loved even more this time than in last years Christmas Invasion - are often downplayed, but not to the good of the story. That's not to say The Runaway Bride is all bad, merely that it could have been better.
