BBC America just announced some HUGE news for fans of Doctor Who - they will be broadcasting the new Christmas special (entitled "A Christmas Carol") on Christmas Day. I believe this may be the first time fans in the US will get the special the same day as the Brits...BBC-A is really stepping up their broadcast game and I for one am so thankful. :) Here's the synopsis info from BBC-A's website:
Matt and Karen return for an all-new Christmas special, along with Arthur Darvill and guest stars Michael Gambon (Harry Potter) and Katherine Jenkins.Can. Not. Wait. :)
More details to come, but Lead Writer and Executive Producer, Steven Moffat, confirmed, 'Oh, we're going for broke with this one. It's all your favorite 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!'
