Doctor Who Christmas Special

Filming is now complete on the 2011 Doctor Who Christmas Special in which the Doctor (Matt Smith) finds himself in war-torn England embarking on a magical and mysterious adventure with a young widow and her two children.

A stellar guest cast including Claire Skinner (Outnumbered), Bill Bailey (Black Books), Arabella Weir (The Fast Show) and Alexander Armstrong (Armstrong & Miller), join Matt Smith in the emotional festive special, packed full of Christmas thrills and chills.

Two lucky young actors join the cast for the Christmas Special:

Holly Earl (represented by A&J Management) plays 15 year old Lily Armstrong. 19 year old Holly has been working since the age of 4, including roles in Neil LaBute's Possession, "Touching Evil" and the popular BBC Christmas movie The Greatest Store In the World, alongside her sister Elizabeth.

Maurice Cole (represented by Hamilton Hodell) plays her 11 year old brother, Cyril Armstrong. Maurice starred as Eli in the feature film Foster alongside Toni Collette and Ioan Gruffudd.

The special, set during World War II, sees Madge Arwell and her two children, Lily and Cyril, evacuated to a draughty old house in Dorset, where the caretaker is a mysterious young man in bow tie, and a big blue parcel is waiting for them under the tree. They are about to enter a magical new world and learn that a Time Lord never forgets his debts...


This marks Matt Smith's second outing as the Doctor at Christmas time.
