Doctor Who Christmas Special

The other day, I was trying to think of a SciFi movie that was also a Christmas movie. Nothing jumped to mind, so I googled it. I didn't have much luck finding a Christmas-SciFi cross-over, but I did come across these articles about the Doctor Who Christmas Special, coming out in a few months. Apparently, it's going to be "the most Christmassy [Doctor Who] Christmas special." Yay!

The article I found had even more to say:

'This year's Christmas special will be Doctor Who's clever twist on the much loved A Christmas Carol.'

'Moffat clearly had a jolly time writing it: "Oh, we're going for broke with this one. It's all your favorite Christmas movies at once, in an hour, with monsters. And the Doctor. And a honeymoon. And ... oh, you'll see. I've honestly never been so excited about writing anything. I was laughing madly as I typed along to Christmas songs in April. My neighbors loved it so much they all moved away and set up a website demanding my execution. But I'm fairly sure they did it ironically!"'

I know it's Halloween today, but I'm already excited for Christmas!

I for one hope it's set in the same Victorian era as The Next Doctor.
