'Doctor Who' Christmas special filming: In pictures

By
Don't fret, Doctor Who fans - the current series may be coming to an end this Saturday night with mind-bending spectacular 'The Wedding of River Song', but filming has already begun on this year's Christmas special!

The likes of Claire Skinner, Bill Bailey, Alexander Armstrong and Arabella Weir have signed up to appear alongside Matt Smith in the festive instalment - which is expected (but not confirmed) to air on December 25.

"The Doctor at Christmas - nothing is more fun to write," said showrunner Steven Moffat. "Maybe because it's so his kind of day - everything's bright and shiny, everybody's having a laugh, and nobody minds if you wear a really stupid hat.

"Of all the Doctors, Matt Smith's is the one that was born for this time of year - so it's the best news possible that he's heading back down the chimney."
