One of the joys of having a wander around York is running into this guy – I’ve mentioned Ed Alleyene-Johnson before, and make no apologies for doing so again. He makes some wonderful sounds, and is one of the few buskers I’ve seen who can really hold an audience.

Doctor Who Christmas Special: Details!

A trailer and some details have been released. First, here’s the trailer:

So, we have a title: Twice Upon a Time, and lots of snow, to keep the Christmassy vibe. As we knew, it features David Bradley doing his best to recreate William Hartnell’s First Doctor. As we didn’t know (and the naughty boy kept this quiet in a recent Doctor Who Magazine interview), it also features the ubiquitous and quite possibly indigenous Mark Gatiss as a First World War officer. And it features something going wrong with time, so having two Doctors might just come in handy.

But most of all, it includes Pearl Mackie as Bill, which I think is a Very Good Thing – as we last saw her having been transformed from being CyberBill, she had no idea if the Doctor had survived, and he had no idea that Heather (her slightly soggy girlfriend) had appeared and rescued her, so the two of them can get together and have a nice chat before he turns into someone slightly different…
