The Doctor comes between Clara in Santa in the 1st Who Christmas clip

Remember how dark the ending was to that season finale of Doctor Who? With the death and the lying and the loneliness?


Well, it's Children in Need time again on the BBC, which means two things

  1. You should donate to the BBC's telethon designed to raise money for charities that help, well, children in need.
  2. There's a clip for the Christmas episode of Doctor Who!

It's a win-win for everyone, really. So without further ado ...

The idea that parents giving kids a great big pile of presents is a more ridiculous notion than Father Christmas is kind of true. Also, Nick Frost as Santa is inspired casting. Also also, Nathan McMullen from Misfits as an elf is also inspired casting. Because he's pretty short.

Now, only a month and a half or so to wait for the rest. What do you want from Doctor Who for Christmas this year?
