What are you expecting from the Doctor Who Christmas Special this year? Daleks? Cybermen? Yeti? While these are all monsters you would associate with your favourite TV show, The Daily Star has rumoured that the Doctor will be taking on a (drum roll please) Great White Shark.
Still here? Good. No, that wasnâ€™t you misreading anything, the freshest rumour for the Doctor Who 2010 special is exactly that. The Doctor will take on a flying Carcharodon Carcharias at some point in the episode. But thatâ€™s still a rumour and nothing has been confirmed.
According to a source for the show:
“Even the Doc gets a fright. He wasn’t expecting it to fly.”
Or even be anywhere near a Christmas Special we presume. The Christmas Day episode is said to be loosely based on the Charles Dickens novel A Christmas Carol which you may remember Dickens reading out to an engrossed audience in 2005â€™s The Unquiet Dead. Apparently the episode is going to be spectacular (would you expect anything less?) with Executive Producer Steven Moffat stating that heâ€™s really going all out on this particular special:
“We’re going for broke with this one…It’s all your favourite Christmas movies at once, in an hour, with monsters.”
Remember faithful readers that most things you hear about the special are only rumour and not a lot has been confirmed about it as yet; take everything you hear with a pinch of salt until itâ€™s confirmed by the BBC.
