Doctor Who Christmas Episode Teaser: Cavorts with Santa Claus!

at . Comments

It's the North Pole! Who ya gonna call?!

Certainly not the Ghost Busters. The Doctor gets it right when he calls on Santa to help square away whatever festive plot he's engaged in on Christmas Day.

If you watched Doctor Who Season 8 Episode 12, you know Santa already had a thing or two to say to The Doctor about how things ended with Clara. 

Will visiting the North Pole have anything to do with mending the strange rift of lies The Doctor and Clara told one another in their attempts to see the other happy?

The very best news is that Santa Claus will be played by Nick Frost who is best known in the US for his movie roles with pal Simon Pegg in Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul and At World's End. What a brilliant surprise!

Get a sneak peek at all of the festive Christmas horror when you watch the clip above.

Worry not, your crack TV Fanatic team will be on hand Christmas Day to deliver a full review of the episode, so be here to join us! In the meantime, you can watch Doctor Who online for all of your Whovian needs.

Doctor Who Quotes

Only in darkness are we revealed. [...] Goodness is not goodness that seeks advantage. Good is good in the final hour, in the deepest pit, without hope, without witness, without reward. Virtue is only virtue in extremis. This is what *he* believes, and this is the reason above all I love him, my husband. My madman in a box. My Doctor.

Nardole [quoting River Song]

Once, long ago, a fisherman caught a magic haddock. The haddock offered him three wishes in return for its life. The fisherman said, “I’d like for my son to come home from the war. And a hundred pieces of gold.” The problem is, the magic haddock, like robots, don’t think like people. The fisherman’s son came home from the war, in a coffin. And the king sent a hundred gold pieces in recognition of his heroic death. The fisherman had one wish left. What do you think he wished for? Some people say he should have wished for an infinite series of wishes, but if your city proves anything, it is that granting all your wishes is not a good idea. [...] In fact, the fisherman wished he hadn’t wished the first two wishes.
