Katherine Jenkins in Radio Times

Doctor Who Christmas Special guest star Katherine Jenkins features in the new Radio Times, in which she is quizzed about her appearance.

While nothing is given away about Ms Jenkin’s character or indeed the plot beyond what we know already (A Christmas Carol-style jump through time, so we’re lead to believe…) we do at least find out that Michael Gambon is full of stories about people he has worked with…

Is it true you’re to appear in the Doctor Who Christmas special?

I’ve not done any acting before, so I wasn’t sure if I even could. But I read for the part and on my 30th birthday, they called to say I’d got it. Matt Smith and Michael Gambon – who’s also in the episode – have been really encouraging. I can’t wait to see the results.

Did Michael Gambon give you any acting tips?

I learned so much from simply watching him, and he was always telling great stories about all the actors he’s worked with – Matt and I would sit and listen to him for hours.

Considering a career change?

I surprised myself: I never thought years ago that I’d want to act. But I’ve had such a good time doing it, who knows?

The new issue of the Radio Times – for the week commencing Saturday, 11th September – features Stephen Fry on the cover, inexplicably, rather than Katherine Jenkins.

Still, we might get Ms Jenkins on the Christmas issue, eh?
