The popular pair will reprise their roles
The pair were last seen playing the 10th version of the Time Lord and his companion Rose Tyler in the 2010 series finale The End Of Time.
Veteran actor John Hurt will also appear in the highly-anticipated programme, which is due to air on 23 November.
The episode has been written by Steven Moffat and will be shot in 3D.
Cast members got together for a read-through yesterday evening and it seems Matt, 30, is very excited to be a part of the one-off show.
‘I read it and clapped at the end,’ Matt tells the Sunday Mirror.
‘It’s epic, it’s vast.’
