“Doctor Who” Christmas Special Stuff

Ahoy, all!!

Over in the UK on the “Children in Need” special, they, as always, had some delicious Doctor Who stuff for us to chew on, both introduced by Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman. Have a look at a “prequel,” though before the thing comes out it’d have to be a “preview” or a “prologue,” and also a trailer where we get to see some stuff I used to have nightmares about when I was a kid.

So lovely to see the return of the Doctor’s allies from “A Good Man Goes to War.” Also, if that’s the Doctor’s costume for the rest of the series, hooray to that. Now, the trailer.

Christmas is coming, we just have to get beyond Thanksgiving, which apparently isn’t a holiday anymore and is instead “Christmas Round One.” Can’t wait for the special on Christmas night! Look for my review to follow.

    The Moff has done it again! Seeding charachters into earlier episodes, with plans for thier return far down the line. A man full of crazily complex and entertaining ideas with production team to back him up. Watch out!
    I’m not sure it means anything, but River was wearing similar era clothing towards the end of season 6 too. Either way, this looks like it will help to make Christmas that much more interesting.

    You are so right Aj! There hasn’t been a real actiony Christmas special since the Voyage of the Damned way back when.

    This is probably the most hyped i’ve been for a christmas special since…ever (IMO, they don’t really have much of a habit of being all that extraordinary)
    Also, YAY for the return of Madame Vastra & Jenny!
