We've got 13 more days to go before Doctor Who's Christmas special, "The Snowmen," premieres! To tide you over until then we've got a new promo trailer that features a voice-over by Sir Ian McKellen, and it shows off the terrifying Snowmen. There's also two short clips featuring The Snowmen, The Doctor's brand-new companion Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) and the TARDIS doing its thing. According to the guy in the first clip, this is the best Doctor Who episode ever!
The episode is set to air on Christmas Day. The Doctor will also 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.
