Hints at the Plot
Though it’s not entirely clear as to what the Christmas special will actually about – there have been a few clues released. According to the BBC:
Producers are promising a special twist on the much-loved A Christmas Carol theme. The hour-long show will join Doctor’s assistant Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and new husband Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) as they venture off on their honeymoon. But being Doctor Who, the holiday is unlikely to proceed as planned.
Here are some more hints from showrunner Stephen Moffat:
He said: “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.
“I’ve honestly never been so excited about writing anything. I was laughing madly as I typed along to Christmas songs in April.”
Filming for the Christmas Special started this past week and will continue through to next month. 5 guesses as to when the special episode will air.
