I never get sick of the insane awesomeness that is Christmas in Britain. They have an entire day chock full of special episodes of all their best shows, even if those shows are between seasons like “Doctor Who” inevitably is. It seems like having an oversized “Doctor Who” episode every year focused on something resembling the meaning of Christmas should get old after a while. It doesn’t.

This year’s “Doctor Who” Christmas Special has had its trailer released in order to make Americans start asking when exactly BBC America will be airing the special. Here’s the trailer:

The trailer looks interesting, and indeed plays up the Narnia angle. I can only assume that they will finally answer the question of what would happen if the Narnia Wardrobe were to be stored inside the TARDIS and then transported in time. Would the Narnia door open to the precise same date and time, or would it open at a different time relative to the time travel? These are critical questions.
