Doctor Who Christmas special 2012 – first shot of Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman unveiled

The Doctor's clearly trying to tell his new companion something important here - but we're just as interested in what's going on in the background...

There’s a sense of urgency to this first shot of the Doctor and his new companion in this year’s Christmas special. The Time Lord is clearly trying to communicate something of importance to Clara Oswin (if that is, indeed, her name). And while we’re desperate to know what it is, we’re also slightly distracted by what’s going on in the background – snow!


Of course, a Doctor Who Christmas special without the stuff was pretty unthinkable but it’s still good to have confirmation that, on TV at least, it will be a white Christmas after all…
