The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine celebrates Christmas, with detailed coverage of the forthcoming A Christmas Carol and interviews with Steven Moffat (writer), Toby Haynes (director) and Matt Smith (The Doctor).

Says Matt on working with his co-star for the adventure, Sir Michael Gambon:
Michael is a naughty man, a naughty actor! He’s hugely interesting, everyone on set could have listened to his stories all day! And then the cameras start rolling and he’s just captivating...

In this issue:
  • The Universe According To Tom! To many, he will always be the Doctor! The legendary TOM BAKER doesn’t hold back as he tells DWM what it was really like being the Fourth Doctor – and his true feelings about the others who have starred in the role he made his own.
  • Feelin' Groovy! The irrepressible Katy Manning, last seen as Jo Jones (née Grant) in The Sarah Jane Adventures story Death of the Doctor, gives her most revealing interview ever! Discover what happened to the kookiest companion of them all, after she left the Doctor in The Green Death – and just what Katy herself did next...
  • That's Grand! She played the Doctor’s granddaughter, and appeared in the very first episode of Doctor Who in 1963 – and now she’s back! Carole Ann Ford, who plays Susan Foreman, talks exclusively to DWM about her latest adventures on audio.
  • A Load of Old Bull? Bull-headed monsters, OTT Villains and the Fourth Doctor at his silliest! Yes, it’s time at last for The Fact of Fiction to scrutinise the infamous story that took Doctor Who into the 1980s – The Horns of Nimon!
  • The Mind Robber! Put down that mince pie and get ready for the ultimate Doctor Who challenge, as the Watcher proudly presents his fiendishly difficult Christmas Quiz – tough enough to tax even the most dedicated fan! How will YOU fare... ?
  • That Was The Year That Was! DWM takes a look back at one of the most unforgettable years in Doctor Who’s history – this one! Relieve all the highlights of 2010 – the year that saw the début of the Eleventh Doctor’s and Amy – in DWM’s annual review of the year.
Plus, Steven Moffat discusses what kittens, plot arcs and multi-coloured Cybermen (with noses) have in common in his Production Notes, the young Amelia and Rory discover a wondrous bookshop that's bigger on the inside in comic strip The Professor, The Queen and the Bookshop, and the usual news, reviews and competitions.
