BBC Releases ‘Time of the Doctor’ Sneak-Peek

dw

On the seventh day of Christmas, the BBC gave to me (us); a thirty-second teaser of “The Time of the Doctor. ”

Watch as the Doctor and Clara get all domestic and try to cook a turkey. Of course, neither is the wiser when it comes to cooking the poultry and Clara tells the Doctor to use his Sonic Screwdriver and “app” it. Apparently, the Screwdriver doesn’t do turkey, but a time machine does.

BBC Release Extended ‘Doctor Who’ Christmas Special Trailer

With just a week until we say good-bye to Matt Smith and hello to Peter Capaldi, the BBC have released a new trailer for the Christmas special,¬†“The Time of the Doctor.”

The previous trailer for the annual special found us hearing the Daleks confirm that the Doctor was “regenerating”; in this new trailer we see that the Doctor and his companion, Clara Oswald end up visit her family for the holidays.

Like any episode of Doctor Who, the family visit is short-lived because it’s time to save the world. The trailer, much like the official poster for the special reveals that we will be encountering many of our favorite (or not so favorite) villains such as the Daleks, the Silence, the Cybermen and those pesky Weeping Angels.

Check out the newly extended trailer for the episode and don’t forget that it airs on Christmas Day at 9 P.M. on BBC America.

“And now it’s time for one last bow
Like all your other selves
Eleven’s hour is over now
The clock is striking twelve”

With two weeks until Christmas, Doctor Who fans were starting to feel the pressure as the annual Christmas special is around the corner.

This year, like several times before, we will be saying good-bye to our favorite bow tie and fez wearing, floppy-hair, twelve-year-old acting Doctor in exchange for yet to be specified Twelfth Doctor.

The trailer starts with the Eleventh Doctor’s current companion, Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) reciting a rhyme which pretty much summarizes (reread the italicize rhyme up there) what fans have been anticipating, in a sad way, since Matt Smith announced that he would be bowing out of the iconic role that made him a household name at the end of the year.

The name of the special has been titled, “The Time of the Doctor” which let’s be honest, the writers missed the boat with things like “Silent Night” or “The Twelfth Hour” unless all these “The ______ of the Doctor” titles are some kind of pattern that fans should be keeping an eye out for.

BBC America released the following blurb about the episode alongside the trailer:

On the heels of Matt Smith’s final episode as the eleventh Doctor, BBC AMERICA is releasing the latest epic trailer from the December 25th Christmas Special,¬†“The Time of the Doctor.”¬†Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe’s deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars. And amongst them — the Doctor. Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe.

Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor airs at 9:00 P.M. Christmas day on BBC America.
