Nick Frost to guest star in Doctor Who Christmas Special

Fri, 09/19/2014 - 7:05am

…And Natalie Gumede, Faye Marsay, Nathan McMullen and Michael Troughton will also join the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and his companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman).

Production on 2014's Doctor Who Christmas episode has begun, with a host of British acting talent set to appear. The Christmas Special, a cracker of a highlight in the festive season’s schedule, will air this Christmas on BBC One and promises to be an action-packed, unmissable adventure.

Nick Frost, actor and screenwriter, has starred in numerous hit film and television roles, including Spaced, The World’s End, Shaun of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, Cuban Fury and Paul, which he also wrote.

Nick comments: “I'm so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the Doctor Who Christmas Special, I'm such a fan of the show. The read-through was very difficult for me; I wanted to keep stuffing my fingers into my ears and scream 'No spoilers!' Every day on set I’ve had to silence my internal fan-boy squeals!"

Michael Troughton (Breathless, The New Statesman), who has recently returned to acting, will follow in his father’s footsteps by appearing in Doctor Who. His father, Patrick Troughton, played the second incarnation of the Doctor.

They will be joined by Natalie Gumede (Coronation Street, Ideal, Strictly Come Dancing), Faye Marsay (Pride, The White Queen, Fresh Meat) and Nathan McMullen (Misfits, Casualty).

Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, says: “Frost at Christmas - it just makes sense! I worked with Nick on the Tintin movie many years ago and it's a real pleasure to lure him back to television for a ride on the TARDIS.”

The Doctor Who Christmas Special will air on BBC One. Written by Steven Moffat and directed by Paul Wilmshurst (Strike Back, Combat Kids), it will be shot in Cardiff at BBC Wales Roath Lock Studios.

Who Meets Heist

Fri, 09/19/2014 - 2:46am

All the great Heist movies have a blend of humour, action, ingenuity and a certain audacity of style. The very best ones have you rooting for the rogues attempting the job, and Time Heist, written by Steve Thompson and Steven Moffat, is no different.

Except it is different, of course, because it’s Doctor Who! And so the bank in question is the most dangerous bank in the universe, one of the security problems is a terrifyingly powerful alien called the Teller and naturally, we have the Doctor himself at the heart of the action. It’s an irresistible combination and Douglas Mackinnon, director of last week’s beautiful episode, Listen, handles the adventure with wit and verve. A self-confessed fan of the heist genre, he ensures the episode is a hugely enjoyable fusion of Who meets heist.

The brilliant Keeley Hawes plays the mysterious Ms Delphox and is joined by Jonathan Bailey as Psi and Pippa Bennett-Warner as a shape-shifter called Saibra.

Time Heist is on BBC One on Saturday at 7.30pm but you can watch the episode being introduced by Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Steven Moffat now!

Time Heist is one of those wonderful Doctor Who adventures full of strange new creatures and a rich assortment of aliens. And there’s at least one glimpse of some familiar foes as the trailer revealed brief shots of a Sensorite, a Terileptil and other monsters that we haven’t seen for a while.

Which got us thinking… What monsters do you miss? 

Enemies like the Daleks and Cybermen have been a recurring problem for the Time Lord over many years but is there a monster you loved that we haven’t seen for some time?

We’re after everything from the obvious to the obscure … Any monster that hasn’t featured in Doctor Who recently is fair game! Tweet your suggestions with the hashtag #MonstersWeMiss or email your thoughts to with the subject header, #MonstersWeMiss or reply to one of our posts on our official Instagram account.

We’ll tweet photos of your most popular and creative suggestions on the show’s official twitter account - @bbcdoctorwho. And not only that, we’ll delve into our archive of behind the scenes photos and stills from past adventures and post them on our new Instagram account – bbcdoctorwho

So! Get tweeting us, emailing us or replying to our Instagram posts. Which monsters do you miss? Let us know!

Thank you!

Watch Doctor Who on Saturday at 7.30pm and prepare to meet the last man standing in the universe, follow the start of a romance for Clara and find out what haunts the Doctor…

Listen is written by Steven Moffat and is another chiller, so if you enjoyed his Tenth Doctor adventure, Blink, you’ll love Listen. The episode has some great moments of humour and several fast-paced action sequences and is directed by Douglas Mackinnon whose previous credits include The Power of Three and Cold War. Samuel Anderson returns as Danny, last seen during Into the Dalek and the Doctor asks the question, ‘What’s that in the mirror, and the corner of your eye? What’s the footstep following, but never passing by?’

Listen: This Saturday on BBC One at 7.30pm. You can watch a trailer for it now or check out moments from the story in the episode gallery.
