New Clip Teases 'Doctor Who' Versus Santa Claus

In anticipation of the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas Special, the first glimpse of Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, World's End) as Santa Claus debuted at the end of last week's Doctor Who season finale. Now another early present has arrived for Whovians counting down the days until the holiday special airs.

The BBC recently debuted a two-minute preview of the Christmas Special as part of their Children In Need charity telethon. The clip sees Clara meeting Jolly Old Saint Nick (Frost) and a pair of elves on a rooftop, before the Doctor intervenes -- foreshadowing a potential festive showdown between the Last Son of Gallifrey and the North Pole's Finest.

The Doctor Who Christmas Special will air Christmas Day -- as it does every year -- and will star Peter Capaldi as The Doctor and Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald.
