It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… “Doctor Who” style!

This year’s Christmas installment finds the Doctor (Matt Smith) retired to Victorian England where he meets up with some old friends, including Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh), Jenny (Catrin Stewart) and Commander Strax (Dan Starkey) as well as Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman), the young woman destined to be the Doctor’s next companion.

For this story, the Doctor and his allies will take on the malevolent Doctor Simeon (Richard E Grant) and his army of killer Snowmen. And in the latest trailer from BBC, the voice of the Snowmen is definitely provided by a major player in the X-Men and Lord of the Rings movies.



Welcome to “Doctor Who,” Sir Ian McKellen!

“Doctor Who” returns on Christmas, Tuesday, December 25 on BBC One and BBC America!
