Who's Who In The Christmas Doctor Who – The Lion, The Witch And The TARDIS?

Shelly Horwitz writes for Bleeding Cool:

As piping hot from the latest Doctor Who Magazine, the cast for the Christmas Special and their characters:

  • Madge Arwell: Claire Skinner
  • Alexander Armstrong: Reg Arwell
  • Holly Earl: Lily Arwell
  • Maurice Cole: Cyril Arwell
  • Bill Bailey: Droxil
  • Arabella Weir: Billis
  • Paul Bazely: Ven-Garr

Bill Bailey was recently on Danny Baker's radio show, when he described his character Droxil as 'a futuristic warden', and cracked that 'the BBC will be saving a fortune in effect make-up' on him.

The BBC have described the episode as (spoiler-ish, sweetie) a WWII adventure for the Doctor, a widow and her two children:

They are about to enter a magical new world and learn that a Time Lord never forgets his debts…

Sounds very Narnia-esque – The Lion, the Witch, and the TARDIS?  But Matt Smith in a weird hat is always a good time.  Plus, was that a hidden Game of Thrones reference?
