Given that they openly admitted the likeness to facehuggers from Alien I thought these aliens were OK and allowed for a fun scenario with the Doctor and Santa saving the day, though it did get me excited thinking that Santa could be another lost Time Lord, but anyway…

The Kantroffari, more commonly known as Dream Crabs, were parasitic beings that fed on the brain matter and activity of sentient beings. While absorbing their food they projected a dream state into the minds of their victims, even layering dreams to make the victims believe they had woken up. The connection was their weakness, for if a victim could truly wake up and break free of the dream the the crab would wither and die.
