Deck the halls with demented zombie snowmen, Dr Who!

God bless the BBC and their formidably enthusiastic publicity department.

Even if there was a slim chance we’d forget about the good Doctor’s upcoming, and deliciously creepy Christmas special The Snowmen, it would be rendered null and void, and yes, well, exterminated, by the constant avalanche of trailers, movie-style posters and photos they keep on releasing.

And I am so glad they do.

In this age of instant everything, waiting even a month or so for what looks like a thoroughly engrossing special, can seem like an eternity. (Just call me Mr Instant Gratification Nerd Boy form now on if you like; go on, I won’t mind.)

So having all these exciting sneak peeks at the special is just enough – just I must be clear; I will not be truly satisfied till Boxing Day arrives in Australia and I can see it – to keep me waiting just a little less impatiently.

And thanks too to the tireless, and dedicated folks at who provide the best updates a time-travelling fan boy could ask for.

Here are a few more shots from the stills that were released and if you want to see the full suite of pics, you can see them all here.

Save the children! The Doctor has to battle the snowmen to rescue Clara, and her charges, Francesca (Ellie Darcy-Alden) and Digby (Joseph Darcy-Alden) … and if past specials are any guide, all of humanity.
