6ft 7inch actor and stuntman Spencer Wilding has told Rhyl Journal that he has a role in “The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe”, having previously appeared as the Minotaur in “The God Complex”. The actor couldn’t reveal much about his role, but described the festive special as “a real hum-dinger of an episode”. He said: "It's great working with the likes of Matt Smith - he's such a cool Doctor. And it's such a great production."
