Doctor Who fans who caught the first episode of Series 7 have already gotten a taste of what Jenna-Louise Coleman can bring to the long-running sci-fi series, and they'll be seeing even more of her as she returns to play the Doctor's new companion as the series moves forward. She'll be appearing in the upcoming Christmas special, which airs next month.
BBC America shared some information about this year's Christmas special, which was written by Steven Moffat and will have the Doctor accompanied by his newest companion (played by Coleman).
Following the epic mid-season finale, the Doctor gets in the holiday spirit in the all-new Christmas special written by lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat (Sherlock). Accompanied by his newest companion, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, the Doctor’s latest adventure through space and time sees him once again crossing paths with the homo-reptilian Silurian Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh) and her cohort Jenny (Catrin Stewart). The Doctor Who Christmas Special premieres December 25, 9:00pm ET.
No mention of a title yet but they also shared the following photo, which doesn't give much away about the special, but shows Matt Smith as the Doctor, seated before his Tardis and looking pensive and serious with his hands folded on his lap.
Seems a little serious. Not much of a smile on his face and he looks a little hunched. What's going on in that head of his? Fans will find out when the special airs this Christmas.
The Christmas special airs this Christmas, and then the series' seventh season is expected to resume in 2013. As we previously shared, the Cybermen will return at some point in the 7th season's remaining episodes.
