New DOCTOR WHO Christmas Special Pics Feature Wooden Cybermen And Some Surprising Spaceships
The BBC has released a few new pictures from the Doctor Who Christmas special, The Time of The Doctor. The episode coming hot off the heels of the 50th anniversary celebrations will serve as Matt Smith’s swansong and the world’s introduction to Peter Capaldi as The Doctor, if you don’t count the 5 seconds of eyebrows we saw in The Day of The Doctor. The new images offer some intriguing hints about the episode as well.
If you thought the Pandorica episodes were packed with Doctor Who baddies, you ain’t seen nothing yet. The Time of The Doctor will include Weeping Angels, Daleks, wooden (yes, wooden!) Cybermen, and possibly one other villainious group. If you look to the skies of the first two images, it appears some Sontaran ships are hovering above the battlefield. The synopsis offers up the possibility of even more groups to follow. You can click the first two images to see them much, much larger to try and decipher a few clues for yourself. Below those is the cover to the December issue of Doctor Who Magazine followed by the rest of the images released by the BBC. The Time of The Doctor will air on the BBC on December 25th at 7:30 PM followed by the BBC America premiere at 9PM. You can see the BBC Christmas trailer with a few snippets of Who at the very bottom. Are you ready for The Doctor to make his final bow? Are you ready for the new Doctor to take his place inside the TARDIS?
