The Christmas edition of the Radio Times features an interview with lead writer on Doctor Who, Steven Moffat. Describing how he wrote A Christmas Carol holed up in a hotel room in Los Angeles during the volcanic ash cloud this year, the writer said:
I’m trying to think Christmas! Crunchy snow and roaring fires! Scarves and stamping your feet warm and spicy wine and mince pies. Clearly I was in the wrongest place ever! Two days of writing nothing, and I took emergency measures. I downloaded every Christmas song I could find, closed all the curtains, and turned up the air conditioning to Doctor Zhivago, and sat at my desk in a big coat and mittens.
The full article appears in the double-issue, which features Wallace and Gromit on cover, out now until the 27th December. Doctor Who had its own Christmas cover for the previous issue, also available in the shops - you can see this and other Doctor Who covers on the Radio Times website.
