Snowmen? Snow worries!

A raggedy man and his avowedly not-a-Dalek companion take to the skies…

There’s no need to worry – Doctor Who will be back to save your Christmas Day schedule from sub-standard seasonal TV:  would it even be the festive season without another jaunt with Gallifrey‘s last son?

As you can see, the BBC have been busy with pitching this year’s episode as a movie-style romp, replete with artwork which positively screams Drew Struzan at you, which is no bad thing.

The official site has more lovely images like the one above, and a high-quality look at those absolutely unpleasant snowmen from the “Children in Need” teaser trailer, which brilliantly represent the kind of jump behind the sofa, nightmare fuel fodder that distinguishes “Doctor Who” from all the family pitched fantasy dramas that have come and gone over the years.

Go on and click the teaser trailer again- ’tis the season to be reduced to a quivering pool of jelly merely by homicidal meteorological phenomena…
