Thursday, 6 December 2012 - Reported by Chuck Foster
As with last year, the BBC are to present a number of special linking trailers to mark its festive programming on BBC One this Christmas. Introduced by a teaser trailer last week, this year sees comic actor Rob Brydon and his able assistant (actress Sarah Alexander) producing BBC One Christmas in a series of adverts created by Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R and directed by David Kerr through Red Bee Media.

The series is reported to involve Matt Smith, as well as David Walliams, Miranda Hart, the cast of Call The Midwife, Lee Mack, Strictly Come Dancing’s Craig Revel Horwood, the cast of EastEnders and Pudsey the dancing dog.

Episode One - broadcast tonight on BBC One just before Eastenders and not on the 8th December as originally expected - does not feature Smith himself, but Doctor Who is represented instead in the form of the TARDIS being mistaken for a dressing room by Mrs Brown (Brendan O'Carroll from the BAFTA-winning sitcom Mrs Brown's Boys).
