Here at Newsround we reckon we're pretty speedy at getting the latest Doctor Who news out to you.

And this time is no different... here is the latest pic of the Christmas Special 2010 characters!

Opera star Katherine Jenkins and Michael Gambon, who plays Dumbledore in the Harry Potter films, join Matt Smith for a Doctor Who with a difference.

According to the makers, this episode is a 'clever twist' on the classic tale A Christmas Carol.

Show boss Steven Moffatt revealed: "It's all your favourite Christmas movies at once, in an hour, with monsters. And the Doctor. And a honeymoon."
