"Doctor Who: The Next Doctor"

This is the 2008 Christmas Special. It takes place in 1851 and is very Dickensian, lots of "A Christmas Carol" references. The Doctor arrives and immediately runs into another Doctor we have never seen before battling a primitive Cyberman. Which, being a time traveler, is not that surprising. But something is wrong. This new Doctor doesn't recognize our Doctor and he really should.

Velile Tshabalala plays the Next Doctor's companion Rosita Farisi, just like Martha Jones.

The only special feature is an hour of the Doctor Who 2008 BBC Prom hosted by Freema Agyeman including the seven minute mini-episode "Music of the Spheres" The Proms (The Henry Wood Promenade Concerts presented by the BBC) are an eight-week summer season of daily orchestral classical music concerts and other events held annually at the Royal Albert Hall in South Kensington, London. I think skitten would really like this feature. It was all the incidental music and themes from the TV show. I fast forwarded through the music and just watched the parts where people were talking. When they did the villains themes they had people in costumes walk around the audience. It was great to watch the kids react to them :-D. And at one point the Daleks take over the conductor. It was good they had such a young energetic conductor to play that role.
