The BBC is starting to lift the veil a little bit when it comes to the upcoming “Doctor Who” Christmas Special, and this includes something that we personally find to be very special: A first-look photo featuring the main three characters of the special. You of course have the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman), but to go along with them you have a certain Jolly Old Elf played by Nick Frost.
We presume that on the special he will be referred to as Father Christmas, but in the synopsis below released by BBC America, the character is of course given a much more familiar name:
“It’s Christmas in the North Pole when the Doctor and Clara return to BBC AMERICA in an all-new Christmas special. Last year’s special featured the emotional regeneration that marked the start of Peter Capaldi’s run as the Twelfth Doctor. This year the Time Lord and his companion are in for an all-new adventure as stars Capaldi and Jenna Coleman are joined by Nick Frost (The Worlds End, Shaun of the Dead) as Santa Claus!”
Obviously, this story will be fun and imaginative, but you have to prepare yourself, as well, for the reality of something very enormous taking place within it. There have been rumors for quite a long time in regards to Jenna Coleman’s future on the series, and it is very well possible she could leave once this one is over. For the time being, though, all parties involved are staying quiet.
