It’s been far too long since a new episode of Doctor Who has aired. But Christmas is just around the corner (see: any retail store in the universe) and with the holiday comes the Christmas special!
Airing December 25th at 9PM on BBC America (for the Americans) the new episode will feature a new companion alongside some familiar faces:
Following the epic mid-season finale, the Doctor gets in the holiday spirit in the all-new Christmas special written by lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat (Sherlock). Accompanied by his newest companion, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, the Doctor’s latest adventure through space and time sees him once again crossing paths with the homo-reptilian Silurian Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh) and her cohort Jenny (Catrin Stewart).
We also now have our first official image of the Doctor from this episode below. Click it to see the hi-res version.
Slightly interesting that the press release doesn’t officially list Jenna’s character name (although the rumours for a while are that it’s Clara Oswin) nor does it give the episode a title. Hopefully that information will come soon enough. What are you hoping for in this episode?
