Finally, a trailer for the “Doctor Who” Christmas special, “The Time of the Doctor,” has been released, and it’s pretty exciting. It begins with a bit of a poem from Clara (Jenna Coleman), who says, “And now it’s time for one last bow, like all your other selves. Eleven’s hour is over now, the clock is striking twelve’s.” That certainly makes Matt Smith being the 13th Doctor difficult.
It seems the character Tasha Lem (Orla Brady) had helped to trap the Doctor, along with the Silence, Cybermen, Daleks and Weeping Angels. Even as Smith’s time on the show comes to a close, the fight rages on, with a Dalek shouting, “The Doctor is regenerating.”
Finally, 11’s battle cry says it all: “If you want my life, come and get it!” “The Time of the Doctor” airs at 9 p.m. ET Dec. 25 on BBC America.
