Bring your sonic screwdrivers, your bowties, your fez’s... and perhaps a few tissues to mop up those tears; the trailer to Matt Smith’s final adventure in the Tardis has been released. The Doctor Who Christmas special has always brought with it great adventures, terrifying villains and usually a fair bit of snow, but this year’s looks to be a real tough fight for the Doctor, as the trailer shows not just one, but many of his most feared opponents returning, including the Daleks, the Cybermen, the Weeping Angels and the Silents. The trailer opens with a particularly haunting verse from Clara, “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.” While it has long been common knowledge that the Christmas special will signal the end of the 11th Doctor’s time (and of the course the beginning of Peter Capaldi’s run), it seems he will also return to Trenzalore. With the announcement that “The siege of Trenzalore is now begun”, perhaps the prophecy of “On the fields of Trenzalore, at the fall of the 11th , when no living creature can speak falsely or fail to answer, a question will be asked, a question that must never, ever be answered” will finally be realised. Clara, playing true to the girl who was “born to save the Doctor”, is seen shouting, “Help him change the future, do it!” though it is not clear who she is speaking to. The trailer also suggests that the Doctor has been trapped by his enemies, and ends with a series of battles and explosions, with the Doctor yelling, “If you want my life, come and get it!” The Time of the Doctor looks as if it’s going to keep up the Christmas tradition of an emotionally-charged and action-packed episode, and let’s face it, could there be a better way to say goodbye to everyone’s favourite Raggedy Man? I think not. The Time of the Doctor will be broadcast on BBC One at 7.30pm on Christmas Day, and on BBC America at 9pm ET.
