We’re only a few days away from the premiere of the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special, titled “The Snowmen,” and the Beebs has seen it fit to release an updated trailer. This time around, it’s more focused on providing glimpses of the action, instead of providing a backstory.
The Snowmen finds the doctor still affected by the loss of Amy and Rory, and has now decided to stop and retire, without any companions. However, retiring isn’t really an option as he manages to get enmeshed in yet another sinister plot involving a certain Doctor Simeon and an army of vicious snowmen.
The Doctor Who Christmas Special will feature the debut of the doctor’s new companion Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman, who already made an appearance on the season 7 premiere, Asylum of the Daleks), and guest appearances by the trio of the Silurian Madame Vastra, her human ward Jenny, and the Sontaran Strax. The special airs on Christmas Day.
