New Doctor Who Radio Times Cover

The importance of the Christmas Doctor Who cannot be overstated enough, and you’ll find plenty of content in the new issue of Radio Times, on sale this weekend and covering listings for 3-9 December.

Featuring an evocatively snowy Doctor Who cover – seen here – and a sneak preview of the new Christmas special, it is bound to get you in the mood for the big day, when ever it occurs (meaning, of course, Doctor Who Day, rather than the out-dated Christmas Day!)

Inside, Matt Smith, Alexander Armstrong, Bill Bailey and Arabella Weir talk about making the Christmas episode, with Matt hinting that the Christmas special monster is

“…going to be one of our best. The design is classic.”

Meanwhile comedy musician/genius Bill Bailey describes his Doctor Who debut as “the equivalent of a knighthood.” That will save the Queen some time and effort in the future then!
