A second preview clip was released for the Doctor Who Christmas special and its full of fun.
The clip starts off with the Doctor, played by Matt Smith, answering the phone of the Tardis and finding his companion Clara, played by Jenna Coleman, on the other line with an emergency. She tells him he’s her boyfriend to which he was more than ready to take on the role, even though he’s “a little rusty in some areas, but that he will look at a manual”. She eventually tells him that he won’t actually be her boyfriend, but that she might have invented one and told her parents that she’d have him come to Christmas dinner, even though she doesn’t have an actual boyfriend.
While she’s telling him this he’s found a little trouble of his own on the Tardis in the form of an “unidentified vessel detected”. She then tells him that she needs him to come to Christmas dinner, but he doesn’t hear her as he drops the phone to deal with something on the Tardis. We don’t find out if he’s actually going to Christmas dinner or not as he tells her that he missed the last bit of what she was saying and that he had to dash.
So will the Doctor end up going to Christmas dinner? Well we will just have to wait and find out when the episode airs on Christmas day at 7:30pm on BBC One and 8/9c on BBC America.
