'Doctor Who' Christmas sneak peek: Clara needs the Doctor to be her boyfriend

See also

You know how the description of the "Doctor Who" Christmas special states that the Doctor (Matt Smith) rescues Clara (Jenna Coleman) from a family Christmas dinner? Well, the sneak peek BBC released Monday, Dec. 23, may show exactly why "rescuing" is the word used.

The first "Doctor Who" "The Time of the Doctor" sneak peek out shows the Doctor and Clara having a problem with cooking the turkey, and now, in this newest Christmas special clip, Clara calls the Doctor on the TARDIS – but they aren't exactly focused on the same topic by the end of the call.

"Emergency. You're my boyfriend," she greets him, and the conversation that follows probably makes her wish she had a human guy in her life for this situation if only so she didn't have to spend so much time explaining herself. She invented a boyfriend (and no, not an android like the Doctor did one time) and said he was coming to Christmas dinner, so she hopes the Doctor can make it. But he has other things on his mind (and why is he holding the head of a Cyberman?) and completely misses the end of her request.

The "Doctor Who" Christmas special airs Wednesday, Dec. 25 at 9 p.m. on BBC America. What do you think of the latest "The Time of the Doctor" clip?
