"The Doctor at Christmas - it always just feels so right. When I was a kid,
Santa and the Doctor somehow lived in the same place in my head - two
generous madmen that I loved so much. So now that the Doctor is a regular
feature of Christmas the world is just that bit more right." - Steven Moffat

New York - Who says Christmas only comes but once a year? BBC Home Entertainment brings you the 2011 Doctor Who Christmas Special, "The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe," available on DVD and Blu-ray February 14, 2012. Matt Smith (The Doctor) is joined by Claire Skinner (Outnumbered), Bill Bailey (Black Books), Arabella Weir (Skins, The Fast Show) and Alexander Armstrong (Armstrong & Miller) in the new festive special packed full of Christmas thrills and chills from lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat (The Adventures of Tintin). The special, which the Los Angeles Times called "a particularly funny episode of an often funny series," made its debut Christmas night on BBC AMERICA in the US and SPACE in Canada.

It's Christmas Eve, 1938, when Madge Arwell comes to the aid of an injured Spaceman Angel as she cycles home. He promises to repay her kindness: all she has to do is make a wish. Three years later, a devastated Madge escapes war-torn London with her two children for a dilapidated house in Dorset. She is crippled with grief at the news her husband has been lost overseas, but determined to give Lily and Cyril the best Christmas ever. The Arwells are surprised to be greeted by a madcap caretaker whose mysterious Christmas gift leads them into a magical wintry world. Here, Madge will learn how to be braver than she ever thought possible. And that wishes can come true...

Bonus features include:
The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe Prequel
"The Best of The Doctor" Special
"The Best of The Companions" Special
"The Best of The Monsters" Special
