Doctor Who Christmas Special 2011 Cast & Crew Details Updated - 20/10/2011

Our artist MentalFoto has yet again created a brilliant graphic!


Original Transmission Date: 25th December 2011

• Writer – Steven Moffat
• Director – Farren Blackburn
• Executive Producer - Piers Wenger and Caroline Skinner

• The Doctor – Matt Smith.
• Amy Pond - Karen Gillan.
• Rory Williams - Arthur Darvill.
• Madge Arwell – Claire Skinner.
Reg Arwell (RAF Officer) - Alexander Armstrong.
Cyril Arwell - Maurice Cole.
Lily Arwell – Holly Earl.
• Billis (Space Harvester) - Arabella Weir.
• Dorxil (Space Harvester) - Bill Bailey.
• Ven-Garr - Paul Bazely.
• Paul Kasey - TBC Monster.
• Spencer Wilding - TBC monster.

It is believed Amy and Rory only have cameo appearances.

This story is set during WWII, and sees Madge Arwell and her two children evacuated to a draughty old house in Dorset, where the caretaker is a mysterious young man in a bow tie, and a big blue parcel is waiting for them under the tree. They are about to enter a magical new world and learn that a Time Lord never forgets his debts.

A major update, info added from DWM. We also know the Harvesters are from the future, and possibly alien, we are to assume the Doctor takes the family from WWII to the future, or something leads them there, as in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe!

As usual, even though it will be Christmas day, we will have all the usual's up (International viewing and download links).

Comboms guess at the time is 6pm or perhaps a little earlier.

I really love that Moffat is playing around with interesting ideas in his christmas specials. I didn't love "christmas carol" but I felt like it was a step in the right direction in making these specials interesting again.

It's said in The Brilliant Book that Karen nor Arthur appear at all in the special. Why hide a possible appearance, considering that it also stated that they'll be back in Series 7? I don't think they'll be in it whatsoever.

"Yippy Kae-yay, mother-Fenric!" the doctor screamed while wearing a wife-beater ("I wear a wife-beater now; wife-beaters are cool). Yes, combom, I would watch this (with Alan Rickman in Doctor Who finally!).
