DOCTOR WHO Christmas Special Exclusive BBC America Trailer

It’s that time of year again! The Doctor Who Christmas special is almost upon us, and BBC America released an extended trailer for the episode, “The Time of the Doctor,” which you can watch in all its glory below:

What does “The Time of the Doctor” mean? Who’s that lady with the awesome eyeshadow? Looks like they’re pulling out all the stops for Matt Smith’s last episode, and I can already feel the tears coming on. The Daleks, Cybermen, and Weeping Angels are making another appearance, as well as the Silence, apparently in an effort to trap the Doctor once and for all? Aside from the Silence, I personally feel like these villains are a little overused this past season, but I can understand the impulse to see that Smith goes out with a bang.

In an interview over at the official Doctor Who website, Matt Smith talks how he feels about his last foray as the Doctor:

When I got to the last 20 pages and it was quite a hard read for me, but I hope it’s going to be a belter. We’ve got a great director in Jamie Payne and some really lovely double hand stuff with me and Jenna. Steven’s managed to tie in plot points and narratives that have been threaded through over years and I think that’s ingenious.

I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely going to be a weepy mess come Christmas, armed with a box of tissues and a sonic screwdriver—the alcoholic kind.
