First look at Doctor Who Christmas Special — scroll down for full image.

This Friday, November 16, the BBC’s telethon Children In Need will be showing the first teaser clip for this year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special (premiering Christmas Day on BBC AMERICA). As is now traditional, the clip will comprise a little stand-alone story, unique to Children in Need, and act as a prequel for the Christmas Special proper. There will also be a chance to see the Doctor (Matt Smith) and his new companion (played by Jenna-Louise Coleman) in the same room for the first time.

Naturally we’ll bring you the clip as soon as is humanly (or otherwise) possible, but, y’know, be ready! In the mean-time, take a peek at the just released photo from the upcoming Christmas Special:

Are you looking forward to the Christmas Special?
