Doctor Who Christmas Special Prequel/Trailer Unveiled

The build-up to Episode Six begins...
Children In Need 2012's Appeal show proved to be a real televisual highlight for this year, featuring plentiful great acts and brilliant looks ahead to things still to come. One such preview? Well, two- we got a brand new prequel for the Doctor Who Christmas Special and a full trailer for it too. The special forms the seventh episode of the fifteen that make up Series Seven, spanning from The Doctor, The Widow And The Wardrobe to Steven Moffat's upcoming season finale. The prequel is titled The Great Detective, focusing on Vastra, Jenny and Strax's attempts to convince the Doctor to leave retirement after the deaths of the Ponds. It's an intriguing set-up for the new adventure, which we can confirm will be titled The Snowmen. As with the past two Christmas Specials, that title is a play on a classic Christmas tale- The Snowman, in case you were wondering- but once again it's likely to be just a minor detail in a bigger overarching epic festive yarn. Check out both videos below. Doctor Who returns on Christmas Day, and then Series Seven Part Two (Episodes 8-15) transmits in Spring 2013.
