First Look: Doctor Who Christmas Special 2010

Doctor Who Christmas Special 2010

It’s finally arrived, the very first publicly released picture from the Doctor Who 2010 Christmas special and it’s giving away nothing!

The picture is shaping up on Steven Moffat’s promise for this special to be the most “Christmassy Special yet”. There’s snow-lots of snow and the Doctor and the TARDIS. And that’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 we’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 anyone’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.

What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!

    A Quote from Production Notes:

    “And after Christmas, 13 more episodes of Doctor Who. Yes, count them and weep. (I do.) Thirteen lovely, brand new, terrifying, exciting, and completely bonkers adventures for Mr and Mrs Pond, and their best pal, the Doctor!”

    This would seem to suggest that the current TARDIS team is here to stay.

    Looking forward to this.

    I watched Vampires of Venice again yesterday and enjoyed it considerably more this time around.

    Starting to ‘get’ Amy now and think that Rory makes a brilliant addition to the team.

    Vampires was quite a ‘lush’ production and I think the lack of extra’s etc in the Silurian two parter perhaps made me think (incorrectly) most of the series (Five) was like this.

    Yeti appearing will be fantastic if it happens although I am not entirely sure.
