The closer we get to Christmas, the closer Doctor Who fans get to the real reason they’re excited for the holiday season, the annual Christmas Special. It’s still a few weeks off, but it’s never too early to get excited. If nothing else, Nick Frost plays Santa Claus (or does he?), and that should be a pretty damn good time. And just in case you’re about to burst from having to wait so long, the BBC has released another quick new trailer for the special, full of moody atmosphere and peril.

This is going to be an especially interesting installment to watch, because this is where we’ll finally get answers one way or another about the future of Jenna Louise Coleman’s Clara, the Doctor’s latest travelling companion. Back in August we first heard reports that she might leave the show to pursue other career options. Since then there has been news that she changed her mind and is going to stay, but nothing on this front is definite except the fact that the network came out and said that we’ll find out for sure in this episode. As you know, this particular episode is called “The Last Christmas,” which could very well be an ominous sign in that regard.

Doctor WhoSo there’s that added layer of tension, but from the look of this video, there’s going to be plenty of that from other sources as well. You’ve got what look suspiciously like corpses covered in sheets sitting up the morgue, which is never a good sign…

Doctor Who…then there are particularly nasty looking monsters to contend with, which can definitely put a damper on your holiday plans…

Doctor Who…and when you come across a message written on a chalkboard (which is always creepy, it’s like Bart Simpson telling you you’re fucked) that reads “You”…

Doctor Who… “are”…

Doctor Who… “dying.” That only spells trouble and is more than enough to put a real damper on the rest of your day, maybe even your year if you’re the paranoid sort. You better believe that they’re going to do some digging to find out where that little note came from. Peter Capaldi’s Doctor keeps a chalkboard, so maybe it has something to do with that. Then again, Clara is also a teacher, so it could very easily tie into that as well. Who the hell knows? We’ll have to wait until December 25 to find out.

Doctor WhoBasically this looks like the spookiest Christmas ever, with creatures and mysteries and all kinds of spooky shit going on. But have no fear, they’ve got Santa Claus on the case.
