Catch a Sneak Peek at Doctor Who's Christmas Special

By Kim Snaith on at

Almost a year without any Doctor Who (apart from a very brief glimpse at the Christmas Special back in October), and fans are desperate to get their fix. The wait is almost over: with Christmas just around the corner, the Christmas Special is only a matter of mere weeks away, and, as part of tonight's Children in Need, the BBC have released an extended trailer to whet our appetites.

As the earlier teaser suggested, yup, it appears that a superhero has indeed wormed his way into Doctor Who. They're everywhere - thanks Marvel. Still, it's Doctor Who, and it looks rather tasty.

There's no concrete air date yet, but we assume it'll be prime time Christmas telly for the BBC - likely Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or Boxing Day.
