Some Familiar Faces Spotted on the Doctor Who Christmas Special Set


Now in production in Newport, Wales, this year’s “Doctor Who” Christmas Special is set to introduce Jenna-Louise Coleman as the Doctor’s new companion, Clara and, as revealed earlier this week, will feature guest appearances by Richard E Grant and Tom Ward.

Photos from the production are now online, revealing a Victorian setting for the adventure and in addition to shots of Coleman and Ward, the presence of “Life on Mars” star Liz White and the return Catrin Stewart’s Jenny, Neve McIntosh’s Vastra and Dan Starkey’s Strax (all of whom last appeared in “A Good Man Goes to War”).

There’s still no official airdate for the beginning of the seventh modern season, but the still-untitled Christmas Special will be the sixth new episode to air.
