Spoilers: Production has now started on this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special penned by showrunner Steven Moffat.
Appearing in the special are Outnumbered actress Claire Skinner, Black Books’ Bill Bailey, The Fast Show‘s Arabella Weir and Alexander Armstrong (The Armstrong & Miller Show).
The episode will see Matt Smith’s Doctor embark on a magical and mysterious adventure in World War II-torn England with a young widow and her two children.
Madge Arwell (Skinner) and her two children are evacuated to Dorset, where they meet a “mysterious young man in a bow tie, and a big blue parcel is waiting for them under the tree. They are about to enter a magical new world and learn that a Time Lord never forgets his debts…”
Moffat said nothing was more fun to write than a Doctor Who Christmas special.
“Of all the Doctors, Matt Smith’s is the one that was born for this time of year – so it’s the best news possible that he’s heading back down the chimney.”
