First look at the young cast of the Doctor Who Christmas Special

The Doctor Who Christmas Special for 2011 is inspired by C.S. Lewis’ Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe and titled ‘The Doctor, The Widow, and The Wardrobe’…

It’s Christmas Eve, 1938, when Madge Arwell comes to the aid of an injured Spaceman Angel as she cycles home, in this year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special, starring Matt Smith as the Doctor.
He promises to repay her kindness – all she has to do is make a wish.

Three years later, a devastated Madge escapes war-torn London with her two children for a dilapidated house in Dorset. She is crippled with grief at the news her husband has been lost over the channel, but determined to give Lily and Cyril the best Christmas ever.

The Arwells are surprised to be greeted by a madcap caretaker whose mysterious Christmas gift leads them into a magical wintry world. Here, Madge will learn how to be braver than she ever thought possible. And that wishes can come true…

Madge Arwell is played by Claire Skinner, 15 year old Lily Arwell by Holly Earl (represented by A&J Management) and 11 year old Cyril Arwell by Maurice Cole (represented by Hamilton Hodell).

Also guest-starring in the episode are Alexander Armstrong, Bill Bailey and Arabella Weir and it is set to air on BBC1 on Christmas Day.
