is today reporting that Michael Gambon (Albus Dumbledore) will be appearing in the Christmas Special of British sci-fi television programme, “Doctor Who.” The 60-minute long Christmas episode will air on BBC 1 on Christmas Day. Steven Moffat, Head Writer of “Doctor Who” said of Gambon, “[he] is as distinguished an actor as I can imagine and the
fact that he was Dumbledore means that he is already know to millions
of children.” You can find out more details about the episode in the Guardian article at this link.
