Incoming: Victorian Doctor Who!

The Snowmen
The Snowmen

Like the BBC upholds a yearly tradition of Doctor Who Christmas specials, we hold our own to review them, provided they are steam or diesel worthy of course. And lo and behold, for the 3rd year in a row we’re lucky with yet another Victoriana tale of horror threatening impending doom on the whole of mankind. Of course the question remains: will, after the tragic events of the last episode of this season, the Doctor be willing to this time help us out?

The new companion, Clara (portrayed by Jenna Louise Coleman) looks like she could kick some interspacial behind, old friends return and the TARDIS has been ruined on the inside, but by jove, the prequels and trailer look amazing! I personally look forward to the episode more than Christmas itself and you can count on a spoiler free review by yours truly after the special has been aired on Christmas Day.

In the mean time, if you haven’t seen them yet, here is what you can see of The Snowmen already online.
