Jenna-Louise Coleman makes her debut as the Doctor’s new companion in this year’s “Doctor Who” Christmas special, “The Snowmen,” which premieres Dec. 25 on BBC America. And based on the first trailer released for the episode, it appears things will get slightly hot and heavy for the bow-tied Time Lord.
Coleman plays Clara, who will give the Doctor a run for his money, taking his hand to lead him into action (rather than vice versa) and even grabbing him for a quick kiss. It wouldn’t be the first time a companion has fallen for the Doctor, though it never ends well.
The annual “Doctor Who” Christmas episode has become quite a tradition for the series, with each successive episode grabbing bigger-name guest stars. This year’s episode also features Richard E. Grant, with Ian McKellen supplying the voice for the sinister Snowman.
Fans will also get a look at a newly designed interior for the TARDIS, the Doctor’s time and space traveling police box.
