In less than a month, Doctor Who fans will meet the Doctor's new companion when she's introduced to us in the anticipated Christmas Special for the series' seventh season. A poster and a photo from the upcoming special have made their way online, giving us a look at Matt Smith as the Doctor and Jenna-Louise Coleman as Clara. And we also have a look at a very nasty looking snowman!
Here's the description for the 2012 Doctor Who Christmas special, titled "The Snowmen."
Announced today, the title of this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special is The Snowmen. A new companion, a new look for the Doctor, plus a new monster will all be introduced in this movie-scale episode.Starring Matt Smith as the Doctor and introducing Jenna-Louise Coleman as new companion Clara, The Snowmen follows their adventures as they embark on a mission to save Christmas from the villainous Doctor Simeon (Richard E Grant, The Iron Lady, Dracula) and his army of icy snowmen. This year’s Doctor Who Christmas special premieres Tuesday, December 25, 9:00pm ET/PT on BBC AMERICA.
And here's the photo of the Doctor and Clara. I like how it combines a suspenseful looking escape with a snowy, wintery London backdrop.
And here we have a look at the titular Snowmen…
The above photo isn't especially spoilery if you've already seen this trailer, but if you haven't, see just how dangerous these snowmen really are.
The snow feeds off thoughts! An army of ice! The last day of humanity on this planet! Sounds like a job for the Doctor!
