Watch: The Snowmen

Christmas 2012Tomorrow, the Series 7 Doctor Who Christmas Special will air. This will feature the return of the Eleventh Doctor, and the return of actress Jenna-Louise Coleman, though it is unsure how her new character, Clara Oswin is related to her old one, Oswin Oswald. In any case, here is the synopsis from the BBC Press Office:

Christmas Eve 1892, and the falling snow is the stuff of fairytales. When the fairytale becomes a nightmare and a chilling menace threatens Earth, an unorthodox young governess, Clara, calls on the Doctor for help. But the Doctor is in mourning, reclusive and determined not to engage in the problems of the universe. As old friends return, will the Doctor really abandon humankind or will he fight to save the world – and Christmas – from the icy clutches of this mysterious menace?

Are you excited for this episode? How do you think it will stack up against previous Christmas specials? Tell us in the comments! When I get a chance to see the episode, I’ll write a review, but as it is the holiday season, I may not have time to write until a couple days after the episode airs.
