A Christmas Carol is the 6th Doctor Who Christmas special since the 2005 relaunch, and was broadcast on 25 December 2010 on both BBC One and BBC America. It was written by Steven Moffat and directed by Toby Haynes.
In this episode, newly wedded companions Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) are trapped on a crashing space liner which has been caught in a strange cloud belt. They call the Doctor (Matt Smith), who lands on the planet below and meets Kazran Sardick (Michael Gambon), a man who can control the cloud layer but refuses to help. Inspired by Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, the Doctor attempts to use time travel to alter Kazran’s past and make him kinder so he will save the spaceship.
A Christmas Carol also stars Katherine Jenkins, a popular Welsh singer, as Abigail Pettigrew. Abigail was cryogenically frozen by Kazran’s cruel father, Elliot Sardick.
