According to his online CV, actor Ankur Sengupta has a couple of minor roles in the special: one as a UNIT soldier and the other, more intriguingly, as an Arcadian refugee.

As some will recall, The Fall of Arcadia was a major battle in the Time War. The 10th Doctor briefly spoke about it in Doomsday

DALEK SEC: How did you survive the Time War?
DOCTOR: By fighting. On the front line. I was there at the Fall of Arcadia. Someday I might even come to terms with that.

The 11th Doctor also visited it off-screen with Amy, as mentioned in Vincent and the Doctor. Although Amy alludes to it as being one of the nice places she’s been to, so presumably this was pre-war.
