Last Christmas - transmission details confirmed.
After all those late evening starts for Peter Capaldi's first series, for UK viewers at least, the 2014 Xmas Special will be going out at 6.15pm on the 25th of December - according to the Radio Times. Appearing at his first ever convention at the weekend - in aid of Janet Fielding's charity Project Motormouth - Capaldi described the Special as "scary and jolly". Being Xmas, and with a much earlier time-slot, I suspect more jolly than scary - though the Radio Times describes the aliens which threaten an Arctic base as looking like Aliens.
After meeting Robin Hood a couple of months ago, could Santa really be the Santa? Some of the speculation currently doing the rounds has him either (a) the Meddling Monk, (b) the White Guardian, or (c) an Eternal.
The DVD / Blu-ray of Last Christmas is already available to pre-order, due for release on 26th January 2015.
