Matt Smith on 2012’s Doctor Who Christmas Special

The Doctor reveals what fans can expect from this year’s Christmas special

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.
