Christmas Episode Named: The Time Of The Doctor [VIDEO]

We’ve barely said goodbye to The Day of the Doctor - but today the BBC has confirmed the name of the final Matt Smith episode of Doctor Who, accompanied by striking artwork…

Expected to air on Christmas Day, the episode will feature Daleks, Cybermen, Weeping Angels and Silents. It will also mark the end of the current Doctor’s life and feature Smith’s replacement, Peter Capaldi. You can get a flavour by clicking play above.

Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor

Starring Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman, the episode also features Orla Brady (Fringe, Sinbad), with Digital Spy exclusively revealing that:

Brady’s character is someone from the Doctor’s past, with the plot of the festive episode revolving around her.

Speculation has been rife: if this is a character known to Doctor Who fans, then the smart money is on:

  • Romana
  • The Rani
  • Jenny

Here’s the newly-released synopsis:

Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe’s deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars – and amongst them, the Doctor.

Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe.

We have but a month left of the Eleventh Doctor…
