** At the same time, it's not as though he deserved comeuppance ''for anything.'' His only "crime" was being greedy and rude, and by all indication, he was just an average wealthy socialite, just like almost everyone else on the ship. He didn't deserve to die any more than anyone else on board. It is the fact that the Doctor ''wishes'' he died instead of some of the others that serves as an early indication as to how dark he can get when left alone,[[YouBastard and shows that many of the audience would fall into the same traps he does later on.]]

** Averted with Astrid, whose name is an anagram of TARDIS (causing much speculation online), but nothing comes of it.
*** On the other hand, although its etymology is different, the name Astrid evokes the Latin word ''aster'', meaning "star", while ''peth'' is Welsh for "thing"; therefore ''Astrid Peth'' could be taken to mean "star thing", which is highly plot-relevant.

With Capricorn dead, the Doctor now has full command of the Host, who have defaulted to the next highest authority, and messianically spreads his arms to have the angels carry him up into... the control room. It's time to stop the ''Titanic'' from crashing. The Doctor comforts the wounded Midshipman Frame, and asks what his name is... [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E12ArmyOfGhosts to his wonderful delight]], it's [[CallBack Alonso]]! With an, "''Allons-y'', Alonso!", the Doctor does everything he can with Alonso to regain control of the rapidly crashing starliner before it creates a nuclear catastrophe, while the surviving passengers- and [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg Rickston]]- hang on for dear life. The Doctor really knuckles down when the ship crosses through Earth's atmosphere. He calls Buckingham Palace to have it evacuated, and even manages to keep the ''Titanic'' from crashing into London. The Queen waves at him as he sails past. Poor Wilfred Mott shouts in outrage at the sight of the ship as those aliens threaten to antagonize a third Christmas in a row.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Rickston solemnly thanks the doctor and hugs Copper tightly.
