Take a look at Peter Capaldi and Nick Frost going head to head in the first picture released of this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special to be shown on Christmas Day.

Shaun of the Dead star Nick plays Santa, who was first seen at the end of last Saturday’s Doctor Who series finale.

This Friday on Children In Need (BBC1, from 7.30pm) viewers can see the first full preview of this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special.

The adventure is mostly set on a North Pole base and also stars former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Natalie Gumede (also Tyrone-basher Kirsty in Corrie) and Nathan McMullen (Finn in Misfits).
