TRAILER: A Doctor Who Christmas Carol

Hot off the presses (of the Internet)!!! A little Doctor, a dash of Pond, some ghosty business and a well-cast Michael Gambon fresh off that wizard school movie. The annual Doctor Who Christmas special is now high atop my seasonal viewing calendar, right up there with Frosty, A Charlie Brown Christmas and A Pack of Gifts Now. Very. Much. Excited.

Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol premieres Saturday, December 25, 9:00 pm ET on BBC AMERICA.

All of your boring family obligations should be out of the way by then so kick them out, light a fire and nog it up with the Doctor!

    SQUEE! DVR is all set for 6pm! VCR all set to record to bring to the parentals since they don’t have cable! Finally we have Who on Christmas Day. What could be better?

  3. Amanda says:

    Is it Christmas yet?! Looks like a Who-filled Christmas for me! ;D (assuming my frequent and probably obnoxious requests for the series 5 DVD box set for Christmas are heeded, of course!) My family may not see much of me that day…

  4. Deltus says:

    GOD DAMN but they do that show up right! Best line is, of course the end: “The Ghost of Christmas Past…”

    I’m with HumphL. It feels too long since the season ended. This will be the best christmas ever. (except for maybe the one where I got my first cure album. that’s kind of hard to beat.)

  10. HumphL says:

    Feels like it’s been forever since the last season. A Tardis-sized hole in my heart that needs to be filled.
