Piers Wenger, executive producer of Doctor Who, has discussed the sci fi’s forthcoming Christmas Special. The title for the special was recently announced as A Christmas Carol and will be a reworking of the famous Charles Dickens novel of the same name. A special preview for the Christmas Special aired as part of the Children in Need telethon. Piers Wenger has discussed the Doctor Who special in an interview with Crave Online.
“It’s called ‘A Christmas Carol’ and you know Steven’s obsession with timelines to drive a story is very well documented. It’s based on the iconic Christmas story that does that. It’s very much a Doctor Who version of Christmas Carol. The Doctor meets a character named Kazran Sardick played by Michael Gambon who is similar to Scrooge, and The Doctor appears to him as the Ghost of Christmas Past and takes him back to his childhood and tries to show him the error of his ways while trying to save Amy and Rory who are trapped on a space train.” – Piers Wenger on Crave Online
Earlier this week the BBC confirmed that Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol would air on Christmas Day on BBC One at 6pm. The episode will also air on BBC America on Christmas Day and in Australia on ABC1 on Boxing Day.
