The Snowmen, the 2012 Doctor Who Christmas special

It’s Time To Schedule Your Christmas Viewing!

Hold on to your horses, British Doctor Who fans – the Christmas special air time has been confirmed by the BBC Press Office!

The Snowmen, the 2012 Doctor Who Christmas special

You’ll need to organize your day around the 5.15-6.15pm timeslot, leaving plenty of time after for discussion of The Snowmen and the consequences of casting Richard E. Grant as a villain.

BBC One will also play host to Call the Midwife, EastEnders and The Royle Family, so you’ll have plenty of time to revisit the Eleventh Doctor’s first encounter with new companion Clara. American views, meanwhile, can catch The Snowmen at the usual time of 9/8c on BBC America.

So why the early airtime for Doctor Who? We’re not sure at the moment, but hope it isn’t due to “light” content. A Christmas episode doesn’t mean that a strong storyline can take second place to snow and festive good cheer, but given what we’ve seen of The Snowmen so far in trailer form, this is unlikely to happen.

Roll on the big day!
