Doctor Who was once again part of the annual BBC Children in Need programme with this video preview of the 2014 Christmas Special coming next month with Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman.
In case you missed it, as it was not included in the "next time" segment that usually accompanies episode downloads and streaming on iTunes (and presumably Amazon as well). BBC has released a promo video for the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special for 2014 starring Peter Capaldi as The Doctor.

The BBC has confirmed that the upcoming 2013 Doctor Who Christmas special is titled, 'The Time of the Doctor.' So we have had 'The Name of the Doctor', 'The Night of the Doctor', 'The Day of the Doctor', and now 'The Time of the Doctor' all in row with only the mini episode titled, 'The Last Day' interrupting the pattern. There's a teaser promo video for it, albeit very short, that the BBC has released as well (see below). How many days until Christmas now?

Richard E. Grant has been cast in the upcoming 2012 Doctor Who Christmas special. The news came from a tweet from Doctor Who Magazine today. It's interesting to see an official-unofficial past Doctor actor return to the series. You may recall that Richard E. Grant was the original 9th Doctor in the Scream of the Shalka, a story written by Paul Cornell. This animated adventure was produced prior to the television series being relaunched in 2005. We reviewed Scream of the Shalka not too long ago in Doctor Who: Podshock 267. In it, we discussed Richard E. Grant's portrayal of the Doctor and how Scream was the forerunner of Rose.

If the Prequel (see previous story) doesn't get your juices running for the Christmas special perhaps this interview with Matt will. Though if the Prequel doesn't start getting you excited I quote the 11th Doctor at this point "What's wrong with you?"

Due to arrive on December 25th on the BBC and BBC America, the new special starring Matt Smith titled The Doctor, The Widow, and the Wardrobe was written by Steven Moffat.
