Christmas Special Cast Member Revealed

Posted By John Bowman

David Morrissey has been reunited with his Blackpool co-star David Tennant for this year's Doctor Who Christmas special.

According to a report by the Press Association, the pair appeared on set yesterday in the grounds of Gloucester Cathedral.

Further details are given in the spoiler box - which may contain information you do not want to know. The PA report - with pictures - was carried today by the Daily Mail. Again, do not click on the link if you want to remain spoiler-free.
According to PA:

"College Green was covered with artificial snow for the scene filmed today, in which mourners in Victorian costume marched in front of a horse-drawn cart carrying a coffin.

"Tennant was dressed in the Doctor's trademark ankle-length brown coat, while Morrissey was kitted out in full period garb - a tan knee-length jacket and red waistcoat.

"A security guard sat in front of the Tardis, which was tucked down a nearby alleyway, covered by a white sheet.

"Tennant waved to the crowds as the crew prepared the intricate set and covered the surrounding historic buildings with fake snow.

"Secrecy surrounds the Christmas episode's storyline, but it's believed to feature the Cybermen - the Doctor's deadliest enemies."

Elsewhere, it has been reported that Dervla Kirwan is also in the special.
