Goodreads: link

Who is Hal Spacejock? Everyone knows a character like Hal Spacejock - he's the guy who plugs a 12-volt lantern into a mains socket and burns his house down. He's the guy who does his own plumbing and floods the neighbour's house. He's the guy who visits three stores to save a few bucks on a hammer, then blows a hundred and twenty on a laser-guided tape measure with built-in bottle opener.

In short, Hal's your regular, everyday guy. He just happens to have a two-hundred ton spaceship, and he's none too flash with the controls.

Doctor Who (2005) | 6x00 A Christmas Carol

Director: Toby Haynes
Writer: Steven Moffat
Starring:Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, and Michael Gambon

With Amy and Rory stuck on a spaceship hurtling towards disaster, the Doctor must convince gruff old man Kazran Sardick to show a bit of Christmas mercy by traveling through time to change his history and solve the mystery of the fish in the fog.

Timey-wimey and perhaps it deals rather fast and loose with DW canon, but it's a fun, sweet ride nonetheless, and worth it all the way. Seeing Eleven and kid!Kazran interacting is a real treat, too, since Matt Smith seems to have such an innate way with kids.
