The BBC have released details regarding this years Doctor Who Christmas Special, check out the details below!
Production on 2014’s Doctor Who Christmas episode has begun, with a host of British acting talent set to appear.  The Doctor Who Christmas special, a cracker of a highlight in the festive season’s schedule, will air this Christmas on BBC One and promises to be an action-packed, unmissable adventure.
Nick Frost, actor and screen writer, has starred in numerous hit film and television roles, including Spaced, The World’s End, Shaun of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, Cuban Fury and Paul, which he also wrote. Nick comments: “I’m so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the Doctor Who Christmas special, I’m such a fan of the show. The read-through was very difficult for me; I wanted to keep stuffing my fingers into my ears and scream “No spoilers!” Every day on set I’ve had to silence my internal fan boy squeals!”
Michael Troughton (Breathless, The New Statesman), who has recently returned to acting, will follow in his father’s footsteps by appearing in Doctor Who. His father, Patrick Troughton, played the second incarnation of the Doctor.
They will be joined by Natalie Gumede (Coronation Street, Ideal, Strictly Come Dancing), Faye Marsay (Pride, The White Queen, Fresh Meat) and Nathan McMullen (Misfits, Casualty).
Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, says: “Frost at Christmas – it just makes sense! I worked with Nick on the Tintin movie many years ago and it’s a real pleasure to lure him back to television for a ride on the TARDIS.”
The Doctor Who Christmas special will air on BBC One. Written by Steven Moffat and directed by Paul Wilmshurst (Kill The Moon, Mummy on the Orient Express).

  1. I'm hoping they're able to keep a lid on whether Jenna Coleman and/or Samuel Anderson are in the special. If someone leaks a location-filming image or a call sheet, that could spoil any attempts to keep the Series 8 finale secret. I notice they've not even confirmed Capaldi, but I cannot imagine they'd change Doctors without anyone knowing about it.

  2. How is it a secret that Jenna Coleman is leaving? It's been posted all over that this is it. I sure hope the big surprise isn't just her leaving though. That would be anticlimactic.
