Doctor Who Christmas special: Bill Bailey interview
“When I arrived at the set, it was quite breathtaking. This beautiful forest, decked out in snow – it looked amazing. And then us as forest space farmers clanging around, it was such fun. It was a juxtaposition of all that is the essence of Doctor Who for me.”

Doctor Who Christmas Carol 
(by Dani Jones)
"This is a piece of fan art I made based on last year’s Doctor Who Christmas special, A Christmas Carol. I love this episode! It has quickly become one of my favorite things to watch around the holidays. I recently re-watched it, and I might have to do so again before the season is over. It is brilliant. Thanks Steven Moffat.”

There’s a moon that’s made of actual honey. Well, not actual honey. And it’s not actually a moon. And technically, it’s alive and a bit carnivorous, but there are some lovely views.
