The annual Doctor Who Christmas Special 2014 now has gallery of images and a few more details such as the airing times in the UK and USA.

The episode, the last of Season 8, is called last Christmas and the pictures make it look very suitable for a younger audience (i.e. looks naff to anyone older!). Airs on Christmas Day at 6:15pm in the UK and 9pm in USA. Maybe the UK timing is telling us something…

We have a couple of other pictures of what looks like some of the ‘space crew’ wearing fake reptile heads. For some reason these where not in the batch released by BBC America (maybe they make the episode look even worse?). There is also one of Peter Capaldi’s Doctor with a tangerine! We have included these here.

Extra pics:-

Lets hope it all makes sense after we see the Special, or perhaps we don’t care after indulging in the Christmas spirit!
