It’s…it’s indescribably beautiful! Clearly Gordon Tarpley should be given a major award for making this major award.

It’s still seven days until the Doctor Who Christmas Special “The Snowmen” debuts, but this prequel ought to make the wait a little more bearable. It’s titled “Vastra Investigates” and has Madame Vastra doing her very best to completely fluster Scotland Yard’s finest.

What is a Nativity Scene without three wise Vaders, Batman, Bill and Ted, and Riker and Troi?! It’s boring, that’s what it is. The T-rex adds an extra touch of epic.

I’m thinking this might have worked better if Santa had parked the Millennium Falcon under the tree instead. Still—best damn Christmas ever. Artist Kevin R. Adams has made every nerd kid’s Christmas wish come true by propping the most well known YT-1300 in the galaxy on top of a tree that only Charlie Brown could love.

If you’ve been having trouble finding Doctor Who ornaments for your tree this year, then look no further than these instructables. They will tell you how to make a TARDIS and a Dalek of your very own. Neither is a horribly complex project and, even better, they’re inexpensive since they can be made from bits and pieces you likely have sitting around your home right now.

We keep getting a little bit more and a little bit more as the Doctor Who Christmas episode, “The Snowmen,” gets closer. Here are three different clips, each featuring a different glimpse at what we’ll be seeing 12 days from now. We’ve got a scary voiceover from Gandalf the Grey, evil scary Snowmen, and the TARDIS making a grand entrance. Looks like Whovians are going to be in for quite a ride when this episode airs.

We’ve heard bits and pieces about the Doctor Who Christmas special this year, and though I like to remain mostly unspoiled, I was thrilled to find out about an awesome guest appearance. If you don’t want to know, stop reading now.
The title of the episode is “The Snowmen.” I don’t know if I’m ready to be scared by Frosty and his pals, but I’m excited to hear their singular voice: Sir Ian McKellen. It’s Gandalf and Magneto in Doctor Who! It’s pretty amazing, and I can’t wait to tune in. And now I’m fervently hoping that McKellen will guest star in a future episode.
