Moffat Teases Doctor Who Christmas Special

And when we say tease, we mean tease…

With series 6.2 of Doctor Who imminent, you can bet that SFX has been bending the ear of showrunner Steven Moffat again for as much info as possible. There’ll be a major interview with him in issue 213 (on sale 24 August) all about the next six episodes, but we couldn’t ignore the 2011 Christmas Special either.

He’s not revealing much, but we did get this out of him:

“It will be as Christmassy as Hell. I might be cleverly redeploying a known Christmas story again, sort of… but probably not the one you think! It will be massively Christmassy and moving and sentimental and sweet. It’ll be set partly on Earth, but not completely. And it might have a period setting…”

The Dalek That Stole Christmas, anybody?
