“And Doctor Who’s clever twist on the much loved A Christmas Carol will thrill BBC One viewers this year…
“With special guest stars Sir Michael Gambon and singing sensation Katherine Jenkins joining Amy and the Doctor, [it will be] an unforgettable present!”
And Moffatt stated that the special episode will include “a honeymoon” and will be akin to “all your favourite Christmas movies at once”.
While on-set filming for the show, Katherine Jenkins said, “I’m over the moon to be involved in the Doctor Who Christmas special.
“I can’t quite believe it as it’s a part of the family tradition at the Jenkins household.
“I heard the news that I got the role on my 30th birthday and it was the best birthday present ever!”
Filming is expected to end in August and it’s has been suggested that the episode may be called, “Father Who.”
