The Doctor and Clara face their Last Christmas
The Doctor Who Team
The BBC Media Centre has released details of the BBC’s Christmas Schedule. And there’s some intriguing news in there for Doctor Who fans!
According to the Press Release:
‘In Doctor Who, the Doctor and Clara face their Last Christmas. Trapped on an Arctic base, under attack from terrifying creatures, who are you going to call? Santa Claus!’
Will this really be the Last Christmas for the Doctor and Clara? And what exactly are these terrifying creatures? It’s not the first time the Doctor has visited the Arctic of course. It’s previously been home to an Ice Warrior in Cold War - and the Cybermen! Perhaps there are clues to be found if you watch the teaser for the Christmas episode. You can also catch this exclusive clip for Children in Need.
As Danny Cohen, Director of Television, says: “This year's Christmas line-up on BBC Television is one of our best ever. There's world-class talent, edge of your seat drama, outstanding comedy and fantastic storytelling. Across our channels we will bring families together and provide something for everyone.”
The episode will star Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Nick Frost, Michael Troughton and Nathan McMullen – along with a host of guest stars. You can read more about the BBC’s Christmas Schedule on the Media Centre website.
