This just in:
David Tennant is returning full time as The Doctor from 2014, in a story penned by RTD, who has been asked to return to Doctor Who following the departures of Matt Smith and Steven Moffat in the Christmas Special. It’s thought to be linked to the 50th and the Parallel Earth Doctor getting caught in a regeneration crisis that reverses the process. Details are only just coming to light, with Tennant confirmed for the 50th and now the Christmas Special, allowing Smith to follow his Hollywood dream, Moffat has been approached to write a major blockbuster film script involving, oddly enough, a time traveler.
April Fools! (or is it?)…..

On this day 49 years ago, the Doctor first appeared on TV screens across the UK. 10 regenerations and nearly 800 episodes later and Doctor Who remains the longest running and most successful sci-fi TV show in the world!
In 1963 the BBC broadcast that thrilling and otherworldly theme music for the first time and viewers were introduced to the Doctor and his incredible TARDIS. At the close of the episode his time machine left present day Earth far behind and began a journey, a journey that introduced the world to Daleks, Cybermen, Time Lords and the idea that bow ties really are cool. It’s a journey that still goes on today and continues this Christmas with The Snowmen…

The Christmas special is following Moffat’s tradition of adapting Christmassy stories, and this time it’s The Snowman. As with the previous two Christmas specials, it won’t be a truly faithful adaptation, and obviously has a science-fiction twist to it.
The Snowman (or possibly Snowmen) isn’t/aren’t actually made out of regular snow. They’re made out of alien snow. Living snow with its own consciousness. And the snow is very, very hungry. Packed together into a humanoid figure, it’s deadly. Also, Vastra is narrating the episode.
