November 24, 2008

The synopsis for the 2008 christmas special has now been released by the BBC Press Office, details have also been announced that the Doctor Who Prom filmed at the Royal Albert Hall in July is also to be shown over the festive season.

Doctor Who – The Next Doctor
It’s Christmas Eve in 1851 and Cybermen stalk the snow of Victorian London, in this special Christmas edition of Russell T Davies’s Bafta Award-winning time-travelling drama.

When the Doctor arrives and starts to investigate a spate of mysterious deaths, he’s surprised to meet another Doctor, and soon the two must combine forces to defeat the ruthless Miss Hartigan. But are two Doctors enough to stop the rise of the CyberKing?
David Tennant stars as The Doctor, David Morrissey as The Doctor and Dervla Kirwan as Miss Hartigan. This episode also features Velile Tshabalala as Rosita.

The Doctor Who Prom
BBC One offers viewers the chance this Christmas to see highlights from the first Doctor Who Prom – one of the hottest tickets of the summer. Hosted by Freema Agyeman (Martha Jones) and with a surprise guest appearance by Catherine Tate (Donna Noble), this programme, filmed at the BBC Proms in July, is a musical odyssey through time and space.

With the Tardis on stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall, the programme takes viewers on a journey through four series of the Doctor’s adventures, and features the music that accompanied them – Murray Gold’s celebrated music for the television series. Performed by the BBC Philharmonic and London Philharmonic Chorus, under the baton of Ben Foster, the music is accompanied by specially edited film sequences from the series.
One of today’s featured highlights provides viewers with a chance to see the scene that was specially filmed for the BBC Proms. Music Of The Spheres, written by Russell T Davies and starring David Tennant – not to mention a mischievous Graske – left the audience spellbound and there is lots of audience interaction and laughter. The concert also brought the audience face to face with some of the Doctor’s most fearsome adversaries – a host of monsters and aliens, including the Doctor’s oldest enemies, the Cybermen, Davros and the Daleks.
Music featured in this Doctor Who Prom includes All The Strange, Strange Creatures; The Doctor Forever; Rose; Martha v The Master; The Daleks And Davros; Donna; Girl In The Fireplace; Astrid; This Is Galifrey; Doctor’s Theme/Song Of Freedom; Doomsday; and Doctor Who Theme.
Doctor Who At The Proms is simulcast on BBC HD – the BBC’s High Definition channel available through Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media. With up to five times more detail than standard definition television, HD provides exceptionally vivid colours and crisp pictures to make Doctor Who At The Proms a truly cinematic TV experience.

No broadcast times have been announced for either programme and no broadcast date has been announced for the prom. More details as they come.
