Christmas Teasers!

To 2010 Doctor Who Christmas special A Christmas Carol had its preview screening at the BFI last night – and SFX have printed a list of interesting tidbits for us to chew over…

We’re not going to rain on SFX’s parade here – you should pop over there now to read the full list – but some of them are pretty cool…

To begin with, they describe A Christmas Carol as “a tour de force for Matt Smith” who “explodes like a force of nature from the screen,” which sounds either wonderful or slightly worrying. Meanwhile there is a continuity reference to Pyramids Of Mars, but the biggest surprise might just be the fact that Katherine Jenkins is “really very good.”

Typically for a Moffat script the episode is laced with humour, with “more witty, quotable lines per minute than ever before” and the seasonal nature of the story sees the opening titles decorated appropriately, it would seem.

Finally, SFX describe the episode as “fish and ships for Christmas!” which is no doubt a reference to the shark which according to The Guardian was codenamed “Clive” during filming!

Meanwhile, don’t forget to check our gallery of images from A Christmas Carol.
