It's Christmas Eve in 1851 and Cybermen stalk the snow of Victorian London, in this special Christmas edition of Russell T Davies's Bafta Award-winning time-travelling drama.
When the Doctor arrives and starts to investigate a spate of mysterious deaths, he's surprised to meet another Doctor, and soon the two must combine forces to defeat the ruthless Miss Hartigan. But are two Doctors enough to stop the rise of the CyberKing?
The Doctor (Tennant), "But you're the Doctor! The next Doctor! Or the next-but-one, a future Doctor anyway. No don't tell me how it happened! Although I hope you didn't just trip over a brick, that would be embarrassing. Then again, painless. Worse ways to go. Depends on the brick."
David Tennant stars as The Doctor, David Morrissey as The Doctor and Dervla Kirwan as Miss Hartigan. This episode also features Velile Tshabalala as Rosita.
Velile Tshabalala revealed some very interesting facts about her character in a recent interview, "Apparently Rosita was 'a lady of the night,' and one night she was out earning her living and a Cyberman came to attack her. The other Doctor came to rescue her and it went from there. He wasn't a client, he came and saved her!"
The episode also stars all nine previous Doctors, William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker,Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann and Christopher Eccleston. - Look sharpe, or you may miss them!
