The tradition has always been that BBC's Doctor Who gets a Christmas special. However, this year, Doctor Who's Christmas special has been moved forward and become a New Year's special instead. But, a new mini-episode has just been released by BBC America that will -- hopefully -- keep Doctor Who fans satisfied until the New Year's special.
According to Digital Spy, the BBC has released a new animated mini-episode of Doctor Who.
Unfortunately, the mini-episode is truly small, clocking in at only one minute long. However, at least it is something to tide fans over until January 1.
The clip shows a reworking of the classic Christmas poem, "Twas the Night Before Christmas."
"Twas the night before Christmas, and in Lapland, a jolly fellow was in need of a hand," the clip opens.
That jolly fellow being Santa, whose sleigh has broken down right before his delivery run on Christmas Eve.
"My sleigh isn't working and I need to leave now," Santa exclaims.
Luckily, though, Santa has a direct line to the Thirteenth Doctor and he calls her at his wit's end.
The Doctor is happy to help out and lends Santa her TARDIS, "but just for tonight."
