Nick Frost is Santa Claus in 'Doctor Who Christmas Special' TV Spot

If just about every commercial on television is to be believed, we're skipping right over Thanksgiving in favor of Christmas. Doctor Who fans won't mind too much, however, as the BBC has debuted the first trailer for this year's Christmas, special starring Nick Frost as Santa Claus.

Frost's involvement was announced in September. The episode will also feature Michael Troughton, the son of Second Doctor Patrick Troughton.

Aside from Peter Capaldi's quick line of, "It's Christmas -- the North Pole -- who you gonna call?" plot details are being kept under wraps. The Doctor Who Christmas Special debuts on Dec. 25.
