People may still be excited about going on their summer holidays, but for Doctor Who, it's Christmas already.
Matt Smith was spotted filming scenes for the festive episode in Bristol late last night (Monday) and it seems that he's gone back in time.
Wearing a large top hat and an old-fashioned suit, the actor was transported back to the 1890's along with his co-star Jenna-Louise Coleman.

The 29-year-old star appeared to be in good spirits as he sported a huge grin while strolling around on set.
It seems it's also going to be a white Christmas in the Doctor's world as members of the crew were seen using snow machines to create a Winter wonderland look.
Corn Street and St. Nicholas market were transformed into the streets of the 1890's and included horses and carts as well as several extras who were dressed similarly to Smith.

It's only August! The 29-year-old actor was certainly in the festive mood as he stood in front of the camera
Coleman was also wearing the appropriate attire in the form of a dark red basque dress and pointy boots.
The brunette actress appears to be settling into her new role rather well following upcoming departure of Karen Gillan.
Filming of the Christmas special began at 9pm and was expected to finish at around 5am today (Tuesday) and traders received a memo letting them know that St Stephen's Street and St Nicholas Street would be out of bounds.
Lynn Andres, owner of Guy Fawkes hair and beauty salon in St Nicholas Street, said the filming seemed to have been a success.
She said: 'They left quite a bit of snow behind. I think they'll clear it up later. They are just wrapping up. I spoke to one of the lighting guys and he said it seemed to have gone well.
Long day: Filming is said to have begun at 9pm and lasted until 5am

'I'm a great Doctor Who fan, I have been since I was a child. I've followed it all the way through, since it was black and white. It's quite exciting. It's a lovely part of town, a great place to film. It's absolutely fantastic,' she added.
A Doctor Who Christmas Special has been shown every year since 2005 and this year will see Neve McIntosh return as Madame Vastra the Silurian alongside Dan Starkey as Strax.
Life On Mars actress Liz White was also spotted on set as well as Silent Witness star Tom Ward, who has already been confirmed for the festive special.
Richard E Grant will also appear in the upcoming episode which has been written by showrunner Steven Moffat.
Last year the annual episode was the third most-watched programme on Christmas Day last year, after soaps EastEnders and Coronation Street.
