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!
