Doctor Who Travels to the North Pole For Christmas

Exchanging heartfelt gifts and spending quality time with family and friends during the holidays is great and all, but any Whovian knows that the real Christmas Day celebrations start in the evening when the annual Doctor Who Christmas special airs. Below is your early look at "Last Christmas," which showrunner Steven Moffat describes as "Miracle on 34th Street meets Alien."

In store for viewers is one badass Santa Claus, played by Shaun of the Dead star Nick Frost. And danger, always some danger. The annual Doctor Who Christmas special will air Dec. 25 at 9 p.m.
