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.

  1. I am, quite frankly, so excited I can barely contain myself. I really liked the actress’s performance in Asylum of the Daleks earlier this year, so I’m happy she’s going to be a new addition. I’ve always liked the Christmas specials just because they provide a short break from the normal outfit of the season… if that makes any sense. Either way I approach it, I’m super excited.

    Looking forward to reading the review!

  2. Yeah, I was pretty sceptical at first about the new actress but Asylum of the Daleks totally convinced me she’ll be great. I STILL haven’t gotten a chance to watch the episode. Review coming tomorrow(?). Thanks for commenting!
