It looks like this Christmas on the TARDIS will have more than a few chuckles as the Doctor Who Christmas Special adds to big names…
Greg Davies (The Inbetweeners) and Matt Lucas (Little Britain) have been announced as guest stars in the now traditional seasonal episode.
The episode will also feature the return of Alex Kingston as River Song.
The BBC’s official synopsis reads like this:
“It’s Christmas Day on a remote human colony and the Doctor is hiding from Christmas Carols and Comedy Antlers. But when a crashed spaceship calls upon the Doctor for help, he finds himself recruited into River Song’s squad and hurled into a fast and frantic chase across the galaxy. King Hydroflax (Greg Davies) is furious, and his giant Robot bodyguard is out-of-control and coming for them all! Will Nardole (Matt Lucas) survive? And when will River Song work out who the Doctor is?
“All will be revealed on a starliner full of galactic super-villains and a destination the Doctor has been avoiding for a very long time.”
It will air on Christmas Day.
And here’s the first image from it featuring, sigh, River Song…
