This year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special is called The Snowmen. These frozen monsters share one voice and that’s where this episode’s surprise guest star enters the picture. The Snowmen will be voiced by none other than Sir Ian McKellen!
That’s right, the man behind Magneto, Gandalf, and The Prisoner’s Number 2 will be the voice behind the latest villainous creatures fighting Doctor Who (Matt Smith). McKellen joins a group of talented individuals like Kylie Minogue (Voyage of the Damned) and Micheal Gambon (A Christmas Carol) who made their Doctor Who appearances in Christmas Specials.
This should help attract additional viewers for the special. Could this lead to an onscreen appearance in the regular series by McKellen? Could be, I’d love to see him make that move.
What do you think?
The special airs on BBC America Christmas Day at 8:00PM.
