This time last year we live commented the rather fabulous tale of Doctor Who taking on A Christmas Carol. This year, it appears that Matt Smith will be taking on the world of Narnia - with a wintry world available through a piece of household furniture. At first glance, it looks odd, but that is always the way with Doctor Who and we must put our trust in Moffatt and co!

There are guest stars aplenty in the hour long special including Claire Skinner from Outnumbered, Alexander Armstrong from a lot of other things, and Bill Bailey from generally being very funny. I can't wait to see what they have Bailey doing. There's no sign of the Ponds, just like last year, and fans will be coming to terms with the news that they are on the way out next series.

But that is then, and for now we can anticipate the gloriously snowy and no doubt magical world awaiting us later today. I'll let Steven Moffat tell you when and where it's on.

In case no one's mentioned it - Doctor Who, 7pm, BBC 1. And a merry Christmas to all of you at home!
