The Snowmen Synopsis
The official synopsis for this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special, The Snowmen, has now been released by the BBC.
Christmas Eve 1892 and the falling snow is the stuff of fairy-tales. When the fairy-tale becomes a nightmare and a chilling menace threatens Earth, an unorthodox young governess, Clara, calls on the Doctor for help. But the Doctor is in mourning, reclusive and determined not to engage in the problems of the universe. As old friends return, will the Doctor really abandon humankind or will he fight to save the world – and Christmas – from the icy clutches of this mysterious menace.
The special airs 25 December 2012 with the time to be confirmed.
