Christmas is still a long way off, but that hasn’t stopped Steven Moffat from dropping a couple of hints on this year’s Doctor Who special.

Speaking to SFX, Moffat said that, like last year, the story may be another Doctor Who take on well known Christmas tale.

“It will be as Christmassy as Hell. I might be cleverly redeploying a known Christmas story again, sort of… but probably not the one you think,” he said. “It will be massively Christmassy and moving and sentimental and sweet. It’ll be set partly on Earth, but not completely. And it might have a period setting…”

Last month, Moffat teased “fire and aliens”.

Filming on the special is thought to begin in September.
