The Next Doctor
Series 4 Christmas Special
It's Christmas Eve in 1851 and Cybermen stalk the snow of Victorian London. When the Doctor arrives and starts to investigate a spate of mysterious deaths, he's surprised to meet another Doctor, and soon the two must combine forces to defeat the ruthless Miss Hartigan. But are two Doctors enough to stop the rise of the CyberKing?
Trivia
  • This episode is the first Doctor Who Christmas special to be set in the past.
  • As it turns out, David Morrissey isn't the next incarnation of the Doctor - nor is he the next-but-one. Infact, he is just an ordinary human being named Jackson Lake, whose mind was taken over by a Cyberman's infostamp containing masses of information about the Doctor.
Memorable Quotes
  • The Doctor: But you're the Doctor! The next Doctor! Or the next-but-one, a future Doctor anyway. No - don't tell me how it happened! Although I hope you didn't just trip over a brick, that would be embarrassing. Then again, painless. Worse ways to go. Depends on the brick."
  • Miss Hartigan: Is it too exciting?
  • Jackson Lake: I'm the Doctor. The one, the only... and the best!
