Doctor Who Christmas Special: The Doctor, The Widow And The Wardrobe
As I framed and mounted the replica of the Van Gogh inspired “Exploding Tardis” in my office this afternoon that my daughter painted for me, it seemed only fitting that I write a post about the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas Special – The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe. It seemed to me to be one of those fixed points of perfection in time that always bring with them those beautiful “ah-ha!” moments.
As a devoted Whovian I am beyond excited to see this years special. The latest trailer from BBC America shows the Doctor in England during World War II in 1941. The story centers around Madge Arwell who, despite learning that her husband was lost over the English Channel, is determined to make this Christmas the best she possibly can for her two children – Lily and Cyril. Of course, the Doctor is there to help make that wish a reality. This C.S. Lewis inspired episode will be just what the Doctor ordered until new episodes return next year! (See what we did there?!? We’re clever . . . we can see River’s facial expression too and yes . . . we are hot when we’re clever!)
Be sure to watch the Trailer in the Featured section to the right and mark your calendars! Santa isn’t the only thing arriving this Christmas that us kiddo’s have to look forward to.
