And of course while weâ€™re waiting, news and titbits about the 2010 Christmas Special (Matt and Karenâ€™s first together! The first special without Tennant!) are starting to leak out.
If youâ€™re spoiler phobic and want to know no details, please look awayâ€¦â€¦.now.
According to tardisspoilers.blogspot, Michael Gambon’s character will be called Kazran. His character is apparently intended to have multiple encounters with the Doctor over his lifetime via a wibbly wobbly timey wimey affair much like Steven Moffatâ€™s The Girl in the Fireplace. The special will have a Victorian setting which the Doctor visits
We will also see Karzan at various stages over his life, although whether this is through flashbacks or through the Doctorâ€™s travels we donâ€™t know. The special is also said to be loosely based on A Christmas Carol.
