“Frost at Christmas — it just makes sense!” Steven Moffat, the show’s lead writer and executive producer, said in a statement. “I worked with Nick on the Tintin movie many years ago, and it’s a real pleasure to lure him back to television for a ride on the TARDIS.”
Frost is, of course, the frequent collaborator of Simon Pegg, who appeared on Who in 2005 as the Editor. The pair is best known for co-starring in 2004 zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead.
