The Snowmen

The snowmen are coming after Doctor Who in the 2012 Christmas special. (BBC America / November 26, 2012)

They're getting closer and closer ... the Snowmen, that is. BBC America late Monday released an image of the monsters Doctor Who will face in the 2012 Christmas special, called, not too coincidentally, "The Snowmen."

The network also released a poster for the special, which will debut 8 p.m. CT Dec. 25.

"The Snowmen" stars Matt Smith as the Doctor and introduces Jenna-Louise Coleman as his new companion, Clara. They embark on a mission to save Christmas from the villainous Doctor Simeon (Richard E Grant) and his army of icy snowmen.
