Sneak a Peek at What Christmas Will Bring With the Doctor Who Christmas Special Prequel and Official Trailer Videos

Some Whovians have been struggling to occupy their time until the Doctor Who Christmas Special airs next month. If you happen to be one of them, the BBC might just be able to help. As part of BBC One’s Children in Need 2012 fundraising campaign, they’ve released “Doctor Who: The Great Detective,” a mini prequel to the upcoming Christmas Special; as well as the official trailer for the actual Christmas Special, titled “The Snowmen.”

Both clips are introduced by Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman who cryptically tease fans about the introduction of Coleman’s character as the new companion.

Curious? Check out both video clips below and be sure not to miss this year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special when it airs on December 25.
