OUTNUMBERED star Claire Skinner will step into the Tardis as a “super-mum” with comedian Bill Bailey for this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special.
Fellow comics Alexander Armstrong and Fast Show funnywoman Arabella Weir also join Matt Smith.
The festive spectacular will see the Time Lord in World War Two-torn England with young widow Madge (Claire) and her two children.
