Xmas 2007 sees Pixie pop princess Kylie Minogue joins Time Lord David Tennant for a Doctor Who Christmas Special set on board The Titanic. At the end of the last series, viewers witnessed the The Titanic crash through the Tardis walls in spectacular style, and the rest of the action continues from that moment.

Kylie, who plays Astrid, a waitress on The Titanic, told SFcrowsnest, "It is an incredible thrill to be joining David and the entire Dr Who production for this year's Christmas special. Dr Who enjoys a unique history and it is going to be very exciting to be a part of that."

Two British sitcom actors, Geoffrey Palmer and Clive Swift, also feature in this Christmas episode. Palmer, perhaps most famous for his roles in the long-running BBC series Butterflies and As Time Goes By, plays the role of Captain of The Titanic. Voyage Of The Damned also features Gray O'Brien, who recently appeared in the film The Queen; Debbie Chazen, star of the BBC comedy series The Smoking Room; Clive Rowe; Russell Tovey, from the film The History Boys; Jimmy Vee, who previously appeared in Doctor Who as the Moxx of Balhoon; and George Costigan, who starred in The Long Firm and the film Rita, Sue And Bob Too.
