  • BBC America has a new trailer for the Doctor Who Christmas special, “The Snowmen,” and so does proper BBC across the pond. Watch both above, and catch a synopsis below:

Christmas Eve 1892, and the falling snow is the stuff of fairytales.

When the fairytale 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?

Starring Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman, Richard E Grant and Tom Ward.

Executive producers – Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner; produced by Marcus Wilson; written by Steven Moffat.

  • The Graham Norton Show on BBC America will feature the Doctor himself, Matt Smith, as its guest immediately after “The Snowmen” airs on Christmas Day.
  • Once Christmas has passed, of course, thoughts will turn to Doctor Who’s ongoing seventh series — which we now know will resume in April on the UK’s BBC One. If the current trend holds, U.S. viewers should be rewarded for their patience on the same day… whatever that may be.
  • Meanwhile, over on Syfy … we knew that the Doctor Who robotic dog spinoff K-9 would make its U.S. premiere on Christmas Day — but now we also know that it won’t be just the pilot, but rather the entire first series:

NEW YORK – December, 2012 – Syfy has acquired U.S. broadcast rights to the 26-part Dr. Who spinoff K9 and will marathon the series in its entirety on Christmas Day — Tuesday, December 25 — from 10AM-11PM ET/PT.

K9 follows the adventures of the robotic canine created by British writers Bob Baker and Dave Martin and first seen in the original 1978 BBC TV series Doctor Who series. The show mixes live action with stunning CG and special effects and pits the robot dog K9 and his teenage friends against a number of human and alien adversaries. The new dog is voiced by the legendary John Leeson, who voiced the original K9 from the 1978 Doctor Who series.

Bob Baker has won a number of BAFTAs for his co-writing of the hugely successful Wallace and Gromit shorts and feature, and together with his business partner Paul Tams,created the new K9 series.

The show has its own facebook page and website, www.k9official.com, where fans can find out facts, be kept up to date with news, and order exclusive merchandise. Now available: T Shirts, figurines etc.

That’s almost as good as new Who … right?
