We present the first studies of decays of the type B -> DX, where D represents a charmed meson (D0, D(*)+ or D_s) from the LHCb experiment at CERN. Our studies use data accumulated during the 2010 run of the LHC. This work represents the first steps on a programme towards a precision measurement of the angle gamma of the CKM Unitarity Triangle. The prospects for this gamma measurement will be reviewed.
