The BBC announced that the Cornetto trilogy’s Nick Frost will be one of the guest stars on the Doctor Who Christmas Special and his quote in the press release proves he’s geeking out about it almost as much as we are:
“I’m so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the Doctor Who Christmas special, I’m such a fan of the show. The read-through was very difficult for me; I wanted to keep stuffing my fingers into my ears and scream “No spoilers!” Every day on set I’ve had to silence my internal fan boy squeals!”
The episode will be written by Moffat and directed by Paul Wilmshurt. Other guest stars for the special include Michael Troughton (son of Second Doctor Patrick Troughton), Nathan McMullen (Misfits) Natalie Gumede (Coronation Street), and Faye Marsay (Fresh Meat).
