Director Jamie Payne will be behind the camera for the 2013 Doctor Who Christmas Special. Payne directed the Series 7 episode Hide. The one hour episode, as of yet untitled (officially anyway), is written by current showrunner Steven Moffat and stars Jenna-Louise Coleman and Matt Smith in his last outing as the Eleventh Doctor (well, until the Doctor Who 60th Anniversary Special). It will also, possibly, see the new actor, or actress, to play The Twelfth Doctor. Filming starts in August.
Before the Christmas Special, there's the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special to enjoy too! Read all about it HERE.
