Six days until we see the "Time of the Doctor" Christmas special of Doctor Who. Six days until we say goodbye to Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor ( that the Twelfth now?) and say hello to Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth (or Thirteenth). Time travel is hard, you guys.

BBC has just released a new extended trailer for the episode, in which the Doctor must sacrifice everything he loves to save a town called Christmas from his worst enemies.


Cybermen, Daleks, AND Weeping Angels? Nope nope NOPE. Looks like is definitely set to go out with a bang, befitting his theatrical, over-the-top style. After two slightly, er, manic Doctors, it leaves us to wonder how will play his version of the Time Lord, especially after the life- and universe-changing events of "Day of the Doctor".

The Doctor Who "Time of the Doctor" Christmas special airs a 9pm EST/8pm CST on December 25th on BBC America.

Will you cry when Matt Smith leaves? Somehow I don't think it will be quite the soul-crusher it was when informed all us faithful Whovians he didn't want to go. But I'm sure I'll end up on a ball on the floor, sobbing my brains out as I usually do. Damn you, Moffat!
