No one weirds up the holidays like Doctor Who, as this new trailer for the Christmas special, Doctor Who: The Snowmen, makes quite clear. Matt Smith and newcomer Jenna-Louise Coleman introduce a sneak peek at the holiday special that will also serve to introduce Coleman as the Doctor’s new companion. This will be the first second episode featuring Coleman, though perhaps she’ll be playing a different character entirely.
Written by executive producer Steve Moffat, the special also features the return of Silurian Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh) and her cohort Jenny (Catrin Stewart). Doctor Who’s The Snowmenairs Tuesday, December 25 at 9 p.m. ET on BBC America. Hit the jump to check out the sneak peek.
