    The BBC premiered a new promo for The Christmas Invasion... and unlike the two teasers which have been made available on the BBC web site, this new trailer shows a good deal of footage from this Christmas special Doctor Who story. The BBC debuted it on BBC One on Sunday, 11th of December.

    The TARDIS has a very rough landing... Once again, outstanding work from the SPFX team...

    You won't be disappointed with this promo. The magic is back!

    A piece of television history will be auctioned at Christie's auction house on the 14th of December. A TARDIS minature measuring 17 inches which was first used in Doctor Who in 1965 is expected to pull in 6,000 ($10,532). Constructed by the BBC visual effects department, this model was last used on screen within an episode in 1970 with Jon Pertwee's debut story Spearhead from Space.

    The TARDIS prop was used once again in the world renowned Tom Baker opening title sequence.

    According to Christie's this particular model was built by Ron Oates.

    The holidays are here, and this would make a perfect gift for that special Doctor Who fan in your life... perhaps one that posts news articles to the Gallifreyan Embassy site... and does a little weekly podcast... You know what I am saying? Hint, hint.. ;o)

    In addition to the TARDIS, other items being auctioned include a Stormtrooper helmet(s) from Star Wars and a Hogwarts school gown from Harry Potter.

     David Tennant and Billie Piper Discuss The Christmas Invasion  View Printable Version

    Doctor Who News

    The BBC Press Office is offering up interviews of David Tennant and Billie Piper in their Press Kit for Doctor Who: The Christmas Invasion along with a story summery of the special (which we previously reported here (warning: it contains possible spoilers)).

    David Tennant, a life-long fan of Doctor Who comments about the The Christmas Invasion:

    "The regeneration process is a severe biological process which takes a fair bit of time. This is not good news for Rose and the rest of the world, because whilst he's going through this, the Earth is being invaded by the Sycorax."

    He continues: "It's a very difficult time for Rose. He hadn't prepared her for the changes he'd undergo. So whilst the Doctor is recuperating, Rose is trying to fathom out how she can save the world."

    "She's also trying to understand how she feels about him now."

    "The Christmas episode is a new start for the Doctor and Rose. They've got to rediscover each other and decipher whether they still feel the same about one another. Despite the new face, he is fundamentally the same bloke, he's still the Doctor and still has a huge amount of affection for her."

    "However, it's not just the way he looks or the way he talks that is different. The Doctor's outlook on life has changed, as has the way he tackles situations. I think he's just hoping Rose can accept the changes and they can pick up where they left off."

    The Christmas Invasion sees Billie Piper return as Rose Tyler:

    "Rose feels so unloved and isolated at the start of the episode," Billie explains.

    "She's returned home to her mother and Mickey and as ever they are there for her. But she feels like she's lost her best friend. The earth is being invaded and Rose has no control over the situation."

    "The Doctor, who is still going through the regeneration process, isn't there to give her the answers and she's scared."

    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.
