Christmas 2008 Hints

So… let’s put it to bed – the 2008 Christmas Special continues to generate discussion across the web and blogosphere. With Den of Geek‘s recent summary of the commentaries on the Doctor Who Complete Series 4 DVD, we’ve learned a lot this week.

So what about The Next Doctor?


• The phrase "cache of info-stamps" is said (not revealed by whom).

• There’s a character called Aubrey Fairchild*, (the name of the Prime Minister in early drafts of The Stolen Earth) who meets a "terrible death".

• The Hub set, from spin-off series Torchwood, has been ‘trashed’ and used for filming in the special.

"Cache of info-stamps" doesn’t half sound antiquated, doesn’t it?
