Richard E. Grant to play a “Villain” in 2012 Christmas Special
When asked about the actor’s role in this year’s Christmas Special, Moffat replied: "Richard plays a fantastic villain"
We revealed the casting of Richard E. Grant last week, after the BBC announced there was to be an iconic star featuring in the Christmas special.
The episode will be the first to feature newcomer Jenna-Louise Coleman as the new companion Clara, and is currently being filmed in and around Cardiff and Bristol. The locations are being disguised as areas of Victorian-era Yorkshire in the industrial age of Britain.
The 2012 Christmas Special will broadcast this December, on Christmas Day.
