Doctor Who 2012 Christmas Episode Prologue and Trailer

In support for the British charity Children in Need, the producers of Doctor Who gave us two treats ahead of Christmas. Below, please find the prologue for the upcoming Christmas episode.

I have to say, it is lovely to see Vastra and Jenny back, and Strax looks like he’s going to be a hoot. Really, this should have been the “gang” the Doctor gathered for Dinosaurs on a Spaceship. I love the Doctor’s change in costume (very dark), and the trio’s desire to pull the Doctor back into thinks beautifully walks the line between self-interest and a desire to raise an old friend’s spirits. Personally, I’d have been quite happy to take tea with Vastra.

And, if that isn’t enough, there’s Jenna-Louise Coulman, who arrives with a mystery of how her character is connected to Oswin from Asylum of the Daleks.

I realize it’s only a few minutes of television, and a teaser and a trailer to boot but, I have to say, I’m getting excited for Christmas!
