The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe is the
seventh Christmas special since the show’s revival in 2005. The
episode will feature Claire Skinner, Bill Bailey, Arabella Weir
and Alexander Armstrong.
The story is partly inspired by The Lion, the Witch and the
Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. The Doctor, The Widow And the Wardrobe was
shown at 7:00pm on Christmas Day on BBC1/BBC1HD on the 25th
The story is set during World War II and is
about a family of Blitz refugees, Madge Arwell and her two
children, Lily and Cyril, who have to relocate to Dorset, where
they meet the Doctor.
It’s Christmas Eve, 1938, when Madge Arwell comes to the aid of an
injured Spaceman Angel as she cycles home, in this year’s Doctor
Who Christmas Special. He promises to repay her kindness – all she
has to do is make a wish. Three years later, a devastated Madge
escapes war-torn London with her two children for a dilapidated
house in Dorset. She is crippled with grief at the news her
husband has been lost over the channel, but determined to give
Lily and Cyril the best Christmas ever.
The Arwells are surprised to be greeted by a madcap caretaker
whose mysterious Christmas gift leads them into a magical wintry
world. Here, Madge will learn how to be braver than she ever
thought possible. And that wishes can come true…

Did you know?
The previous Doctor Who episode to "The
Doctor, The Widow & The Wardrobe" was "The
Wedding of River Song" and the next episode will be in Series 7.
Doctor Who is 48 years old in 2011! On 23 November, 1963, BBC ONE
broadcast a spooky and exciting episode entitled An Unearthly
Child. It began with two inquisitive school teachers following a
student to her home, only to find she apparently lives in a junk
yard which contains what looks like a police call box. Believing
their student is inside the incongruous blue box, they ignore the
protests of a mysterious old man known as the Doctor, and force
their way in... The teachers are stunned to discover it's a craft
that's bigger on the inside! A struggle ensues and the ship
somehow 'takes off', flinging its occupants back in time... And so
began a series of adventures that continues to enchant and enthral
audiences around the world.
