New Doctor Who Themed Radio Times Cover

The current issue of Radio Times magazine features a Doctor Who themed cover promoting the upcoming Christmas special The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe, read on for further details:

The new issue of Radio Times, on sale this weekend and covering listings for 3-9 December, features a snowy Doctor Who cover, and a sneak preview of the new Christmas special. Inside, Matt Smith, Alexander Armstrong, Bill Bailey and Arabella Weir talk about making the Christmas episode.

Inside, Matt Smith previews the special: “Whereas last year felt more like a Christmas romp, there’s a slow-burning, ethereal magic to this. We’ve covered a whole forest in snow. The scale is vast and there’s just something wonderfully magical about it because it’s never that snowy in this country, except maybe in Scotland … and on the telly. It does it for you: all the snow and the lovely smell of the pine trees. I’m really, really looking forward to Christmas now.”

Matt also speaks about pulling off his own fiery stunt: “Believe me, the fireball does so much of the acting for you. It was only afterwards that I realised I could have been seriously charred.
“I’ve been really enjoying it. Hopefully we’ll see more action/adventure-y Doctor next season.” and that the Christmas special monster is “going to be ones of our best. The design is classic.”

Bill Bailey describes his Who debut as “the equivalent of a knighthood.”

This issue of Radio Times magazine is on sale from today at all good newsagents until 2nd December priced £1.20 per copy.
