I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but ever since Hallowe’en (and even slightly before), there’s been a change in the atmosphere at most shops. The colours are festive, the music jolly, and there’s a distinct mood of joy in the air. This can only mean one thing.
The Doctor Who Christmas special is coming again.
When we last left the Doctor, he had embarked in the TARDIS for parts unknown after losing his companions Amy and Rory to the Weeping Angels. Where will the Doctor go from here? Let’s Matt Smith fill you in:
For this year’s Christmas special we have the wonderfully villainous Richard E Grant as Doctor Simeon – as well as lizards, Victorian assassins and deranged warriors from the future, who all return to convince the Doctor that he should board the TARDIS again and save the world. Add to that Jenna-Louise Coleman, and so begins the Christmas Special 2012. I hope everyone enjoys it!
We await patiently. Till then, here, for your viewing pleasure, is the BBC’s minisode preview of the Christmas special, called “The Great Detective”.
And here’s the official BBC trailer for the Christmas special itself. Killer snowmen! 🙂
