Who Wants To See The Doctor Play Twister With A Cyberman?

Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and a Cyberman

What, ALL of you? OK then. Here’s a trailer the BBC have made for their Christmas schedule on BBCOne, which is set to the song “Consider Yourself” from the musical Oliver!. There will be people there you recognise – Graham Norton, David Jason – and people you probably don’t – the people under the avalanche are the presenters of BBC Breakfast.

And of course, smack dab in the middle of all of this jolliness are Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, playing Twister with a Cyberman. Matt, I might add, is wearing a quite appalling/astonishing Christmas jumper.


Amazing. Although I can’t be the only person who is left wondering why they didn’t bother going to the “Nobody tries to be lah-di-dah or uppity” bit of the song. That’s one of the best bits.
