The BBC has released an adventurous looking promo poster for the upcoming 2012 Doctor Who Christmas special, titled "The Snowmen." We've also got a photo featuring some of the episode's terrifying looking frosty villains.
The episode is set to air on Christmas Day, and will feature the first appearance of the Doctor's new companion, Clara. He will also will cross paths with the homo-reptilian Silurian Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh) and her associate Jenny (Catrin Stewart). It was written by lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat (Sherlock), and it looks fantastic!
Christmas Eve 1892 and the falling snow is the stuff of fairy-tales. When the fairy-tale 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.
