WATCH: Doctor Who: The Great Detective – Christmas Special Prequel minisode & Trailer! (VIDEOS)
Children in Need literally just kicked off and one of the first treats for viewers was a special minisode of the brilliant sci-fi family drama Doctor Who.
Matt Smith opened the clip, introducing the special Christmas Special prequel.
He began by saying:
“If you remember when you last seen, the Doctor had said goodbye to his best friend Rory and to Amelia Pond…The woman who will never be replaced in our hearts..”
Cue an appearance from Jenna-Louise Coleman, who teased:
“Oh don’t worry, she won’t be watching…she’s in LA.”
Fan reaction on Twitter was very positive, but it seemed to make the wait to Christmas almost unbearable with one user tweeting:
“The Doctor Who Christmas Special basically makes my Christmas every year”
“Personally think Christmas should hurry up just so I can watch Doctor Who okay”
A third posted:
“I love Doctor Who. I love Christmas. I love the Victorian eta. I love Jenna. I love Matt. I love snow. I love life.”
