Christmas time is coming, which has become painfully obvious since they started playing festive music BEFORE Thanksgiving. It’s once again another time to put up with family along with unwanted gifts, stop motion animated shows, and endless reruns of It’s a Wonderful Life. Or was it A Christmas Story? Anyway, in jolly ol’ England, they have an awesome and groovy tradition involving a time traveling alien and his blue box.
Doctor Who will once again be airing a new Christmas adventure right on Christmas day on BBC, and then later on BBC America for any fans on our shores. This one will be special since it’ll create a new transition and change of pace to the show with the introduction of a new companion since in the last episode, Amy and Rory were-OH! Spoilers… but let’s just say The Doctor became more of a Scrooge after previous events, and once again has to suck it up and deal with yet another Christmas alien invasion. The alien of choice this year: snowmen. Why not? Creatures such as werewolves, vampires, mummies, and witches turned out to be aliens.
With fans excited for the new Christmas special, there has been mixed feelings from fans regarding a recent teaser picture of the new interior of The Doctor’s TARDIS (his blue box). This is weird, since the first seven Doctors had the same interior since the beginning of the show, followed by a new one from the reboot up until the latest layout with the beginning of the latest 11th Doctor. So a new interior so soon is quite unusual, but what if, and this is a pure speculation, but what if it’s part of something bigger.
Once 2013 comes, it will mark 50 years of the Doctor Who franchise. Other than a huge marathon, what is there to expect on this big year? Fans would like the past Doctors to return for a special as they did decades ago, that’s the biggest expectation. Although after interviews with The Doctor’s respective actors, they have no idea so it’s all up in the air. Either that, or the big question may be finally answered. The question that no one dared asked, but that fat, blue alien still babbled about it anyway: “Doctor” who? *pause for dramatic effect*
