Father Who?

Doctor Who stars Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur DarvillThe BBC have confirmed that production starts today (Monday 12 July) on the 2010 Doctor Who Christmas Special in which the thrilling adventures of the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) and newlyweds Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) will continue in a fun-filled and heartfelt festive story

The title “Father Who?” has been bandied about – all we know so far is that according to Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning:

“Doctor Who’s clever twist on the much loved A Christmas Carol will thrill BBC One viewers this year.”

Meanwhile, arriving on set for her first day of filming, the beautiful Welsh singer-turned-actress Katherine Jenkins said:

“I’m over the moon to be involved in the Doctor Who Christmas Special – I can’t quite believe it as it’s a part of the family tradition at the Jenkins household. I heard the news that I got the role on my 30th birthday and it was the best birthday present ever!”

With Michael Gambon also cast, we’re hoping Doctor Who will return on Christmas Day itself. Of course, it’s too early to say at this stage, especially with the recent scheduling shenanigans that in many ways defined the 2010 series…
