Today, the BBC has revealed the title for the highly anticipated Doctor Who Christmas special that will air on December 25 in the UK and it's called . . . A Christmas Carol!
OK, not too creative I must say but there you have it!
This is the BBC's press release:
Back in July, Ben Stephenson, Controller BBC Drama Commissioning, revealed the story will be, 'Doctor Who's clever twist on the much loved A Christmas Carol' and now the title reflects that! We can enjoy a preview of the adventure on Friday, 19 November on BBC One for Children in Need and then there's less than six weeks until the episode airs.
If you can't wait until then, watch BBC One on Friday because apart from the preview of A Christmas Carol you can find out what happened when two young fans of Doctor Who had their dream come true... It's a very special treat featuring Matt Smith and continues Doctor Who's long tradition of supporting Children in Need.
A Christmas Carol reunites Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill and guest stars Michael Gambon (Harry Potter, The Singing Detective) and Katherine Jenkins. Right now we don't know much about the special, but earlier in the year, Lead Writer and Executive Producer, Steven Moffat, confirmed, '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!'
We'll be bringing you more details as they emerge...
What do you think? Looking forward to Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol?
