Naturally they can’t give anything away, but there is plenty to mull over here in advance of your Christmas screening of the episode and the introduction of Clara, the Doctor’s new companion, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman.
1. Long-time Who fans will love the new title sequence – guaranteed.
2. “I don’t need anyone else.”
3. The snowmen and Richard E Grant’s Dr Simeon may not be the only lurking threat…
4. “Did you make this snowman?”
5. There’s a possible nod to Channel 4′s The Snowman with some very literal ‘Walking in the Air’.
6. “Do you want to see where she died?”
7. The Doctor directs some wonderful insults at Commander Strax (Dan Starkey).
8. “The Great Swarm is approaching!”
9. The final sequence sets up 2013′s Who episodes wonderfully.
10.“Pray for a miracle…”
If you don’t already know that The Snowmen airs on Christmas Day on BBC One at 5.15 pm in the UK and on BBC America at 9/8c in the USA (not to mention 9E/6P on Space in Canada and on Boxing Day at 7.30 pm on Australia’s ABC1) then frankly you’ve been working far too hard.
