First Look: Doctor Who Christmas Special 2010
Itâ€™s finally arrived, the very first publicly released picture from the Doctor Who 2010 Christmas special and itâ€™s giving away nothing!
The picture is shaping up on Steven Moffatâ€™s promise for this special to be the most â€œChristmassy Special yetâ€. Thereâ€™s snow-lots of snow and the Doctor and the TARDIS. And thatâ€™s it.
Plot and details of this years special are being kept under wraps (and, one imagines, being kept under lock and key in a Pandorica-style jail guarded by Steven Moffat dressed as a Roman centurion) but if the rumours are anything to go by we could be seeing a return of the Yeti, last seen in the London Underground system causing trouble for the Second Doctor and his friends in The Web of Fear. At this point though, nothing has been confirmed at all.
Filming on Matt Smith’s very first special has pretty much finished now so the TARDIS team should be moving forward shortly to commence shooting on season 32 (how strange that still is to type considering that five years ago Doctor Who was considered a rusty old show).
As far as weâ€™re aware both Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill are back to play Amy Pond/Williams and Rory Williams respectively but how long either one remains aboard the good ship TARDIS is anyoneâ€™s guess.
You can see the full sized Christmas Special picture by visiting DenOfGeek. The Doctor Who Christmas Special is expected to broadcast on 25th December 2010.
