Amy! Rory! The Doctor! Watch 4 clips from Dr. Who's Xmas episode

The premiere of Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol is just around the corner, and to whet our appetites, the BBC released three clips from the special (plus an exclusive inside look) just to make the wait even more excruciating.

Doctor Who show runner Steven Moffat says of the special: "Oh, we're going for broke with this one. It's all your favorite Christmas movies at once, in an hour, with monsters. And the Doctor. And a honeymoon. And ... oh, you'll see.

"I've honestly never been so excited about writing anything. I was laughing madly as I typed along to Christmas songs in April. My neighbors loved it so much they all moved away and set up a website demanding my execution. But I'm fairly sure they did it ironically."

Matt Smith, who plays the Eleventh Doctor, says, "It's kind of a take on A Christmas Carol, but with a time-traveling Doctor Who twist."

And actress Karen Gillan, who plays the Doctor's faithful companion Amy Pond, also adds that special guest star Michael Gambon will make us all cry.

But enough talking. Take a look at the clips, as well as the inside look at the episode. Enjoy!
