None of these particularly spoilery – but if you want to be completely surprised, you may want to skip these recently released set photos from the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas Special.
We see both the Doctor (Matt Smith) and in his new companion (Jenna-Louise Coleman) in period dress. As well as the Doctor’s allies from A Good Man Goes to War, Madame Astra (Neve McIntosh), the Silurian, and her “assistant” Jenny (Catrin Stewart). As well as Sontaran Nurse, Commander Strax (Dan Starkey) we also see two time Doctor, Richard E. Grant.
Grant played a version of the 10th Doctor back in 1999’s Curse of Fatal Death. (The Handsome Doctor). He returned to the Doctor Who universe in 2003, playing an alternate 9th Doctor for BBCi’s attempt to revitalize the series in The Scream of the Shalka, an animated web series.

The Special, which still hasn’t been given an official title, at least not to the public will get a prequel today, Friday 11/16 on the BBC’s Children in Need telethon (probably right about the time this post hits the web)
The Doctor Who Christmas special will air on Christmas Day (12/25) in the UK, US and Canada, and on Boxing Day (12/26) in Australia.
