Doctor Who Christmas Special Details Revealed
BBC unveils artwork, title and synopsis for Matt Smith's last episode...
The broadcaster has unveiled the title and a plot synopsis for this year's Christmas special - along with some artwork.
Called The Time Of The Doctor, the episode is expected to include Cybermen and Silents - since both are featured in the image released by the Beeb.
The official synopsis reads: "Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe's deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars. And amongst them – the Doctor.
"Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe."
Smith, 31, will be departing the show after the Christmas special - and will be replaced by Peter Capaldi.
Show boss Steven Moffat has been discussing the Doctor's regenerative limit in the wake of the weekend's 50th anniversary special.
