Coming Soon – Doctor Who Christmas Special – A Christmas Carol

Doctor Who Christmas Specia

If Chris Ecclestone had stayed with Doctor Who longer than one season, do you think we would have the Christmas Specials? Now firmly established as essential Christmas TV, this is guaranteed to get all the family sitting together quietly. Sorry yer Majesty, your speech just ain’t in the same league.

As ever the first glimpse of this year’s special came courtesy of Children in Need. Very heavy hints had been dropped as to the particularly Christmassy nature of this year’s episode, so it’s no surprise to see Michael Gambon as Scrooge himself. But Gawd bless yer, Mister Moffat, because there are still plenty of twists and turns here. A nautical theme, Amy in her kissagram outfit and Rory as the centurion, suggests all kinds of timey-wimey goings on.

‘Oh, we’re going for broke with this one. It’s all your favourite Christmas movies at once, in an hour, with monsters. And the Doctor. And a honeymoon. And … oh, you’ll see. I’ve honestly never been so excited about writing anything!’
– Steven Moffat

Roll on Christmas day, this looks like a winner
