Production on 2014’s Doctor Who Christmas episode has begun, with a host of British acting talent set to appear!

The Christmas special, a cracker of a highlight in the festive season’s schedule, will air this Christmas on BBC America and promises to be an action-packed, unmissable adventure.
Nick Frost, actor and screenwriter, has starred in numerous hit film and television roles, including Spaced, The World’s End, Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, Cuban Fury and Paul, which he also wrote.
Nick comments: “I’m so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the Doctor Who Christmas Special, I’m such a fan of the show. The read-through was very difficult for me; I wanted to keep stuffing my fingers into my ears and scream ‘No spoilers!’ Every day on set I’ve had to silence my internal fan-boy squeals!”
Michael Troughton (Breathless, The New Statesman), who has recently returned to acting, will follow in his father’s footsteps by appearing in Doctor Who. His father, Patrick Troughton, played the second incarnation of the Doctor.
They will be joined by Natalie Gumede (Coronation Street, Ideal, Strictly Come Dancing), Faye Marsay (Pride, The White Queen, Fresh Meat) and Nathan McMullen (Misfits, Casualty).
Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, says: “Frost at Christmas - it just makes sense! I worked with Nick on the Tintin movie many years ago and it’s a real pleasure to lure him back to television for a ride on the TARDIS.” (x)

On the next episode of Doctor Who-

When ghosts of past and future crowd into their lives, the Doctor and Clara are thrown into an adventure that takes them to the very end of the universe.

What happens when the Doctor is alone? And what scares the grand old man of Time and Space? Listen!

"What’s that in the mirror, of the corner of your eye?
What’s that footstep following, but never passing by?
Perhaps they’re all just waiting, perhaps when we are dead,
Out they’ll come a-slithering, from underneath the bed…”

Doctor Who: Robot of Sherwood exclusive poster revealed

At this point in the new series of Doctor Who, designer Stuart Manning’s exclusive posters for every episode are almost as anticipated as the adventures themselves. After Deep Breath and Into the Dalek comes Robot of Sherwood, with Manning taking more retro inspiration from classic sci-fi.
"Gotta love a robot!" he enthuses, "This one has definite shades of Metropolis, particularly on the logo itself and the symmetrical robot image. It’s a great, lurid episode title, so I took the lead from that."
"The end result is probably somewhere between a pulp novel and the packaging for a 50s tin-plate toy… I’d happily buy a wind-up Doctor Who robot knight, now you mention it." [x]

In a sun-dappled Sherwood forest, the Doctor discovers an evil plan from beyond the stars and strikes up an unlikely alliance with Robin Hood. With all of Nottingham at stake, the Doctor must decide who is real and who is fake. Can impossible heroes really exist? [x]

The newest addition to ‘Doctor Who’ is on the prowl

“Doctor Who” fans still wrapping their heads around the show’s fierce-eyebrowed star, Peter Capaldi, were introduced to another new cast member on Saturday: Danny Pink, played by actor Samuel Anderson.

“He teaches at the Coal Hill School,” says Anderson, “and he, um, takes a bit of a fancy to Miss Clara Oswald.”

The 32-year-old actor is cagey about plot details — but he did give The Post some enticing background on his character.

“Before joining the school, he was a soldier in the British army,” he says of Danny. “But he left, for reasons that will be revealed throughout the season. He’s an everyday sort of man, which I think is neat, especially pitched against such a massive hero as the Doctor. He’s sort of a straight man.”

Will he be joining them in the TARDIS, then? Looks that way. “I would say I become a companion for the companion,” he says.
