BBC has just released a trailer for the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special, “Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol.” I’ve been waiting for this since I heard its announcement and it appears to be an instant geek Christmas classic and a must watch for Doctor Who fans. The special is a bit different than what I had in mind. It seems to be heavily inspired by Charles Dickens’ original “A Christmas Carol.” Not that that’s a bad thing.

“Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol” premieres Saturday, December 25th at 9PM ET. I kinda wish it aired a week earlier instead, but what can you do.
