The 11th Doctor, Matt Smith, has revealed some information about the upcoming Christmas special on BBC America.
Information about the Christmas special was released on Sunday when Smith, the current Doctor, spoke with Collider.
“We’ve got the wonderful Richard E. Grant who’s brilliant as a sort of villainous role. We meet the new companion,” he tells Collider. “And we’ve got Vastra, Jenny and Strax are making a return appearance which is terribly exciting."
"And it does the sort of wonderful Doctor Who-ey Christmas things, you know, snow, aliens, good will, good cheer, someone trying to take over the world," he continues. "Hopefully it makes for good Christmas day telly.”
Fans may remember the Silurian Vastra, her companion Jenny, and Sontaran Commander Strax from the season 6 episode “When a Good Man Goes to War.”
As we previously reported, BBC released information about the upcoming Neil Gaiman episode. The Cybermen are going to make an appearance in the episode. A few guest stars are joining the Doctor and his new companion, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, in the episode including Warwick Davis (Harry Potter).
Doctor Who will return to BBC and BBC America for the Christmas special on Christmas Day. In spring 2013, the remaining eight episodes of season 7 will air.
