    BBC Press Release:

    The Doctor is back for Christmas on the BBC

    Doctor Who returns this Christmas as part of the BBC's spectacular line-up of festive viewing...

    It's Christmas and Jackie Tyler is at home preparing for the festive season, not knowing if her daughter Rose will be home in time - or at all.

    Then she hears the familiar, ancient grind of the TARDIS! Mickey, who is hard at work, also hears it and they both race across the estate just in time to witness the TARDIS' glorious, chaotic crash landing.

    The doors open and, much to their delight, out steps Rose and a complete stranger - except it isn't a stranger - it's the Doctor.

    (Click the 'read more' for the rest. It's the official BBC Press Release, but it may contain possible spoilers, we will let you make the decision to read on or not)



    Disorientated, yet overwhelmed to see them, he takes a few minutes to regain his balance and consider what it is he wants to tell them.

    "Oh! I know! Merry Christmas!" he yells, before collapsing. The Doctor falls in and out of consciousness, with Rose and Jackie powerless to help him.

    In a bid to boost Rose's spirits, Mickey suggests a spot of Christmas shopping. A good plan - until they find themselves under attack by a sinister brass band of masked Santas.

    However, they are not the only ones with problems. Prime Minister Harriet Jones has just been informed that a British space probe, on its way to Mars for a Christmas Day landing, has gone missing.

    It has been kidnapped by a monstrous race known as the Sycorax, who are set on taking over the world.

    Meanwhile, back at the Tylers', Mickey and Jackie are trying to fend off a killer Christmas tree, while Rose tries to wake the Doctor.

    David Tennant plays the Doctor, Billie Piper plays Rose Tyler, Camille Coduri plays Jackie Tyler, Noel Clarke plays Mickey, Penelope Wilton plays Harriet Jones and Sean Gilder plays the Sycorax leader.

    I wonder where we could get a wallpaper-sized version of that TARDIS graphic with the wreath?
