Sadly the 2010 Christmas Radio Times cover doesn’t feature Doctor Who – but you can catch up with the many appearances the series has graced the newstands with via the Radio Times website.
The new Christmas edition – which as you can see sports a Wallace and Gromit cover – is on sale until 27th December also features a free DVD of the excruciatingly funny Outnumbered Christmas Special, free to collect from any branch of Currys or PC World, as well as two weeks worth of in-depth listings for the festive period.
So, how easy was it for The Grand Moff to write Christmas while in sunny LA?
“Iâ€™m trying to think Christmas!Â Crunchy snow and roaring fires! Scarves and stamping your feet warm and spicy wine and mince pies. Clearly I was in the wrongest place ever! Two days of writing nothing, and I took emergency measures.
“I downloaded every Christmas song I could find, closed all the curtains, and turned up the air conditioning to Doctor Zhivago, and sat at my desk in a big coat and mittens.â€
The Doctor Who Christmas special, A Christmas Carol, is scheduled for broadcast at 6pm on BBC One and BBC HD on Christmas Day!
