We are just one week away from one of the saddest traditions a Whovian can ever experience. We are one week away from having to say goodbye to the Eleventh Doctor. As the Doctor Who Christmas Special entitled The Time of the Doctor draws nearer, Whovians around the world are clamoring for more. Today, BBC America gave us that something extra; an extended trailer to the Doctor Who Christmas Special.
In the trailer, we see the Eleventh Doctor, played by Matt Smith, as he meets Clara’s family, the Oswald’s, for the first time. As usual, the Doctor is always happy to meet new people.
However, this happiness proves to be short lived. As they say in the trailer, when you visit old friends, you are bound to awaken some old enemies as well. Boy, does the Doctor ever have a few of those.
The Doctor will be revisited by some of his most ancient enemies, like the Daleks, the dreaded Cybermen, the Weeping Angels, and most regrettably, the Silence.
As always, the Doctor is on a mission to protect the world from burning to ashes and to face the fate that he has been running from for over 900 years.
This is a bittersweet moment in a Whovian’s life. While we are incredibly sad to have to say goodbye to Eleven, we are excited to welcome Scottish actor Peter Capaldi, who will be joining the cast as the Twelfth Doctor.
Here is a look at the extended trailer for the Doctor Who Christmas Special entitled ‘The Time of the Doctor.’
Doctor Who’s Christmas Special entitled ‘The Time of the Doctor’ premieres on Christmas Day at 9:00 p.m. EST on BBC America.
