It's Christmas, Must be Time to Kill a Doctor: 'Doctor Who' Trailer

Seriously, if I was the Doctor (and I’ve got the suit and Converses to step in for Ten any day of the week), I’d avoid Christmas like the plague. You’ve got a time machine, if you’re not going to kill Hitler, at least jump from December 24th to December 26th every year, because the fatality rate of this character on this day is frankly staggering.

Oh, spoiler, the Doctor dies on Christmas. A lot. As Santa’s powers wax, the Doctor’s wane.

Anyway, here’s the new trailer for the Christmas special, which by my advanced Mayan math is less than a week away.

Eh. Running, explosions, dramatic pronouncements. Something happening each and every second is not exciting, it just renders all the movement into stasis, so that it’s not any different than nothing happening at all.

The Doctor is dead, long live the Doctor.

I really hope Clara leaves too. She might talk fast, but she’s got nothing on the fastest temp in Chiswick.

  • I miss Donna. That is all.

  • Karlew

    I am not ready for this.

  • Ozioma

    Capaldimas is just around the corner!

  • Guest

    I really hope Clara leaves too...

    NEVER!

  • A. Smith

    The only thing that gets me in all of this is that Clara sees 11 naked. Like literally.

  • damnitjanet

    Wha...What....WHAT??????

    I'm sorry. I'm so, so sorry

  • This is something I've never understood. The Doctor is an alien being, right? Has a time machine that takes him anywhere and anywhen in the universe. His race is one of the most powerful to have ever existed.

    And yet, he's gotta stop and acknowledge Christmas every year.

    Why??

  • BWeaves

    Well, all the kids at Hogwarts celebrate Christmas. It's just a wonderfully Pagan kind of holiday, what with the Yule log and all.

    I personally love working Christmas Day (tech support), because NOBODY calls in on Christmas Day. I don't care if you're Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, Atheist, Christian, whatever I've left out. You take the day off.

  • But the Hogwarts kids were human and live in our world.

    Do they celebrate Christmas in the land of the Daleks?

  • BWeaves

    No. I was referring to the Doctor celebrating Christmas on Earth. He likes earthy things. Bit mad for them.

  • idiosynchronic

    I feel your pain. The week after Christmas when all the gadgets find their way into my campus and branch offices I get such a migraine . .

  • Because our mistake was ever thinking that the Doctor was a Christ symbol, when he is actually Christ himself. Think about it: the missing 30 years? Time travel. Always acknowledging Christmas? Well, it is his birthday.

  • JJ

    That also explains fez that appears in The Last Supper.

  • AvaLehra

    Because the Doctors look super cute and totally silly with Christmas cracker crowns on their heads.

  • NateMan

    Because he's a BRITISH alien and humanity is a sparkling snowflake of uniqueness, or something.
