It’s a very merry Doctor Who Extra as we bring you all the stars of the latest adventure in one big Christmas cracker of an episode! Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman reveal what it was like working with Nick Frost and the man who brought Santa to life so memorably discusses why he gave him such a unique spin…
Dan Starkey – known to millions as Strax, but playing Ian the Elf in Last Christmas - shares his delight at appearing in three festive specials in a row and co-stars Nathan McMullen (Wolf), Faye Marsay (Shona), Natalie Gumede (Ashley) and Maureen Beattie (Bellows) all give their candid take on what it was like to be part of this ‘dream cast’!
Executive Producer and lead writer Steven Moffat provides a fascinating insight into the origins of the story, and there’s a special treat as Michael Troughton (Professor Albert) recalls his father, Patrick Troughton (the Second Doctor) and how he visited the set of Doctor Who during the production of classics including The Evil of the Daleks and The Web of Fear. All this plus some brilliant, exclusive footage captured during the production of the 2014 Christmas Special.

Sarah Parish as the Empress in The Runaway Bride.
Doctor Who may have finished for a few weeks but don’t despair, a host of familiar faces from Doctor Who will be appearing in the new series of Atlantis which starts this Saturday…. A year has passed and much has changed. With Minos dead, Ariadne is Queen and finds herself at war with her old adversary: Pasiphae.
Expect high-octane action adventure as Jason, Hercules and Pythagoras are thrust into the heart of politics and power in the city. With richly serialized storylines and complex character arcs, this is a darker, more dangerous time for our heroes: A New Dawn.
You may also recognise newcomer to Atlantis, Amy Mason, from Torchwood. She plays Medea, Pasiphae’s niece.
Look out for other Doctor Who names including Robert Pugh who played Tony Mack in Cold Blood and The Hungry Earth, Peter De Jersey (The Day of the Doctor) and Ronald Pickup who starred in the 1964 episode, The Tyrant of France.
