Just in time for the holidays (depending on when your holiday falls), it is the "11th Doctor: Christmas Adventure Set 2010" available now on the Forbidden Planet website. It features the 11th Doctor and Amy Pond sporting her kiss-a-gram police uniform and a non-electronic TARDIS with front doors that open and judging from the photo, access to the phone as well. It is expected to be available on the 20th of December 2010. It sells for £26.99.
I can only assume this is being called a "Christmas Adventure set" solely due to the fact of when it is being released because to the best of my knowledge, Amy will not be wearing her police uniform in the upcoming Christmas special, A Christmas Carol. It would be more fitting to call it 'The Eleventh Hour' Adventure set… though technically the Doctor was still in his 10th Doctor hand-me-down raggedy clothes when Amy was in her kiss-a-gram police uniform. If you want 'The Raggedy Doctor' it is available in a two figure set. This two figure set is available for £11.99.
The BBC Press Office released more information about the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special for 2010, titled, A Christmas Carol. The special will be transmitted on the BBC and BBC America on Christmas Day.
There are a bunch of articles I've been meaning to write since last week, unfortunately I have been fighting off a nasty bug I probably picked up at our anniversary event a week ago. And no, that would not be 'Bug' as in Pete's nickname who was there.
With that said, this may be old news, but only if you haven't seen it already. Below is a publicity photo for the upcoming 2010 Doctor Who Christmas special, A Christmas Carol that the BBC released recently.
@BBCAmerica had tweeted a slightly alternate version here.

The last couple days, Doctor Who: Podshock Correspondent, Tara Wheeler @TARDIS_Tara has been on the hunt for Matt Smith who is in the US currently shooting Doctor Who in Utah for the upcoming new 2011 series. Matt Smith also appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Tuesday.
From this photo that Tara has posted to her Tumblr blog, it appears she has found what she was looking for today. Somehow I am not surprised. When Tara has a goal set in her sights, there's very little that can come between it and her. She hasn't checked in with us since as of yet and I haven't caught up with her Twitter feed yet, so I don't have the details just now, but the photo seems to have been posted about 2 hours ago.
This ones a bit obvious so...
"Waiting for this mysterious scientific advisor of yours to turn up?"

He is there for the 3:30 pm (PST) recording of the show in Los Angeles, CA. Which also means he won't be able to attend our event that evening on here the East coast.
There has been a good deal of confusion leading up this late night talk show appearance. As recently as last Thursday, the office of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson was sending out emails indicating that Matt Smith would not be appearing, meanwhile, that same day Craig Ferguson's Twitter account @CraigyFerg was tweeting that Matt Smith is to appear that night. In addition, there will be a Dalek there as well (which was tweeted the following day)!

It seems that not only 8th Doctor wants a costume change, Matt Smith (the 11th Doctor) is reported stating that he would like some changes in his costume. Specifically, a warmer coat, perhaps in addition to his tweed jacket.
As for a hat, he said he wanted a hat back in April when he was in New York for the premiere of the 2010 series of Doctor Who. So this comes as no surprise. We already know that fezzes are cool.

Matt Smith explaining how in preparing for his role as the 11th Doctor in the long running BBC series, Doctor Who that he studied quotes of Albert Einstein. Recorded at the US premiere of the 2010 series of Doctor Who at the Paley Center for Media in New York, April 2010.
