'Doctor Who' Christmas epic title announced

Post by GD on Mon 15 Nov 2010, 7:14 pm

The upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special is to be titled 'A Christmas Carol', it has been announced.

An official press statement by the BBC confirmed that the one-off episode will pay homage to Charles Dickens's acclaimed 1843 novel of the same name.

Doctor Who's executive producer Steven Moffat recently promised that the festive instalment will feature a mix of holiday fun and terrifying monsters.

He teased: "Oh, we're going for broke with this one. It's all your favourite Christmas movies at once, in an hour, with monsters. And The Doctor. And a honeymoon. And... oh, you'll see. I've honestly never been so excited about writing anything."

The series previously paid tribute to Dickens in 2005's 'The Unquiet Dead', where a fictionalised version of the esteemed Victorian author helped The Doctor and Rose foil the nefarious plans of the alien Gelth.

A preview of 'A Christmas Carol' is to air as part of Friday night's Children In Need on BBC One. (from ds)
