The Time of the Doctor 12/25/13

Whovians have been waiting all year long and now the time has come (12/25/13). This is Matt Smith’s final season as The Doctor and the final episode is this year’s Christmas Special. It’s now time to say goodbye to the Eleventh Doctor and prepare for the arrival of the Twelfth Doctor, portrayed by Scottish actor Peter Capaldi.

Since April 3, 2010, Matt Smith has been playing The Doctor.  Smith is also the youngest actor to assume the role.  He has made The Doctor his own version with his signature style, bow ties and fezzes.

Here is a look at the BBC America extended trailer for the episode.
