SciFiNow spoke to Matt Smith about this year’s Christmas special and he revealed some juicy details about who we will be meeting… spoilers follow.
“We’ve got the wonderful Richard E Grant, who’s brilliant as a sort of villainous role,” he tells us. “And we meet the new companion.” Technically, we’ve already met her (Clara Oswin played by Jenna-Louise Coleman), but when we see her again it will be in a Victorian setting as early pics have revealed.
Fans will also meet some other familiar faces, as Smith continues…
“We’ve got Vastra, Jenny and Strax are making a return appearance, which is terribly exciting. And it does the sort of wonderful Doctor Who-ey Christmas things, you know, snow, aliens, good will, good cheer, someone trying to take over the world. Hopefully it makes for good Christmas Day telly.”
Doctor Who Series 7 Part One is available on DVD now, priced at £18.14 from Amazon UK.
