2010 Christmas Special Title Revealed

Earlier today, the BBC revealed that the title of this year’s Christmas Special, long known to be a take on A Christmas Carol, will be… A Christmas Carol. Doctor Who has a long tradition of having story titles describing exactly what happens with key plot elements or inspirations (The Dalek Invasion of Earth and The Shakespeare Code to name but two), so it shouldn’t come as too much of a shock to have this title used. While a bit underwhelming in our estimation, the bottom line is we’re coming ever closer to new Doctor Who, and really, isn’t that the best Christmas present we can ask for?

Check out the official release from the BBC.

SPACE to Air 2010 Doctor Who Christmas Special

SPACE has announced it will continue to be the Canadian home of Doctor Who, and will be broadcasting the 2010 Christmas Special this holiday season during its annual 12 Days of Space-mas event. The news was formally announced this week on InnerSPACE though as yet no definite date or time has been released. Radio Free Skaro will of course bring you updates regarding the broadcast as details are known, and keep tuned to the SPACE Podcast for our contributions after each and every Doctor Who episode!

With thanks to Melissa DeBruyn for the initial heads-up.
