Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe’s deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars – and amongst them, the Doctor.

Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe.

The trailer for the television special is filled with villains and danger as the Doctor (Matt Smith) tries to have a fun day celebrating with Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) and her family on Christmas. The Doctor is shown traveling around in the TARDIS, pushing buttons and answering phone calls. He later picks up Clara for another adventure and jumps off for snowy planets and old friends.

There are several shots of classic "Doctor Who" villains like the Daleks, the Cybermen, the Silence and the Weeping Angels. They all seem to be working together to set a trap for the Doctor and stop him once and for all. Clara's voice is heard and she remembers that she keeps forgetting people and things because she is the impossible girl. The Silence is mentioned as being the end for the Doctor, which is interesting because the Silence was mentioned in "The Eleventh Hour," the first episode in which Smith portrayed the Doctor back in season five. A new time war begins and the first battle takes place at Trenzalore, the final resting place of the Doctor.

"The Time of the Doctor" will air on the BBC and BBC America on Wednesday, December 25. The Eleventh Doctor will regenerate into the Twelfth Doctor played by actor Peter Capaldi at the end of the television special. Production on the eighth season of the series will take place early in 2014. Coleman will also return as the companion to the Doctor for the next series.
