As most of us get ready for the summer holidays, Steven Moffat is coming over all Christmassy. Fresh from a read-through of a Doctor Who festive special, the writer reveals that the Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins is to make her first major acting appearance in it, alongside the theatrical grandee Sir Michael Gambon. It is, says Moffat, “the most Christmassy Christmas special” of the hit science fiction drama series since its return to our screens five years ago.
Michael Gambon? When I read that, for some reason I thought of Charles Dickens and A Christmas Carol. We’ll see in a few months.
