A new trailer for this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special has been released online. 2012’s installment, titled Doctor Who: The Snowmen, introduces audiences to the Doctor’s new companion played by Jenna-Louise Coleman and features a whole slew of demented snowmen. I know embarrassingly little about Doctor Who (it’s on my Netflix to-do list), so I’ll just direct you Who fans over to Allison’s write-up of everything you need to know about the special. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Doctor Who: The Snowmen airs on BBC America on Tuesday, December 25 at 9pm ET/PT.
Though it’s not quite December yet, the countdown is on for the Doctor Who Christmas Special, The Snowmen. The most important element of this new special will be the introduction of Jenna-Louise Coleman as Matt Smith‘s new companion. The special was written by executive producer Steven Moffat (also of the BBC’s Sherlock series), and will tackle some very serious emotions for the poor Doctor. Hit the jump for more on what to expect from The Snowmen, along with the trailer, poster and still images. The special airs Tuesday, December 25 at 9 p.m. ET on BBC America.
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 Snowmen airs Tuesday, December 25 at 9 p.m. ET on BBC America. Hit the jump to check out the sneak peek.
