BBC America has shared a sneak peek at the Doctor Who Christmas special, entitled simply “A Christmas Carol,” which it will broadcast at 9 p.m. Eastern time on Christmas Day. The same day, BBC America will also have the U.S. premiere of the Doctor Who Prom, a live concert hosted by series stars Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill.

Here’s the BBC’s official synopsis, via the Doctor Who News Page:

Amy and Rory are trapped on a crashing space liner, and the only way The Doctor can rescue them is to save the soul of a lonely old miser, in a festive edition of the time-travelling adventure, written by Steven Moffat. But is Kazran Sardick, the richest man in Sardicktown, beyond redemption? And what is lurking in the fogs of Christmas Eve?

Amy Pond is played by Karen Gillan, Rory Williams by Arthur Darvill, The Doctor by Matt Smith and Kazran Sardick by Michael Gambon.
