Doctor Who Christmas Special 2012 – see new pictures from The Snowmen

Meet this year's festive foes and see the "movie poster" featuring Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman


The countdown to Christmas (and by Christmas we mean, of course, the Doctor Who Christmas Special) continues, and with exactly four weeks to go here’s the latest taster of what’s to come, including the “movie poster” for the episode and a closer look at the chilling snowmen first glimpsed in the recent trailer (see below).


Shame – until now we’d always looked forward to a white Christmas…

Meet this year’s festive foes The Snowmen. Don’t expect to go walking in the air with this lot…

And here’s the man to turn them to slush – The Doctor with his new companion Clara, in the “movie poster” for the episode. If this was, in fact, a Hollywood blockbuster, we reckon the pitch would have been something along the lines of “It’s A Christmas Carol meets Die Hard”

Jenna-Louise Coleman looks like she’ll fill the feisty female hole left by Karen Gillan quite nicely

Also teaming up with the Doctor are detective trio Silurian Madame Vastra, Sontaran Commander Strax and, er, human being Ms Jenny

And here’s this year’s Scrooge, the sinister Dr Simeon, who might just have something to do with those chilling Snowmen…

Watch the trailer for Doctor Who: The Snowmen below


The Snowmen stars Matt Smith as the Doctor, Jenna-Louise Coleman as Clara, Richard E Grant as Dr Simeon, Neve McIntosh as Madame Vastra, Catrin Stewart as Jenny and Dan Starkey as Strax
