Doctor Who 2014 Christmas special air time revealed

Peter Capaldi's first festive episode as the Doctor will be sandwiched between Strictly and Miranda on Christmas Day on BBC1

Set the Tardis controls for Thursday 25th December 2014 at 6:15pm – the date and time of Peter Capaldi’s first festive episode of Doctor Who has been officially confirmed in the Christmas schedules!


Last Christmas, which also features Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald and Nick Frost as Santa Claus, finds itself sandwiched between Strictly Come Dancing and Miranda on BBC1 on Christmas Day and up against Paul O’Grady’s For the Love of Dogs on ITV (a choice that is unlikely to cause many viewers angst on the day).

It will see the Doctor and Clara trapped on an Arctic base, under attack from terrifying creatures (which look a lot like the monster from Alien) and calling on Santa Claus himself for help.
