Doctor Who 2013 Christmas Special - Image And Info!

If you watched the Doctor Who 50th anniversary episode last week the you may have caught the teaser trailer for the upcoming Christmas special that played straight after, and if not then you can view said trailer in the post before this one on here!

This week the BBC released a new teaser image, a title and a synopsis for what will be Matt Smith's final appearance as the Doctor and it's called "The Time of the Doctor"!


‘Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe’s deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars - and amongst them, the Doctor.

Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe.’

All we know for sure is that the Cybermen and The Silence appear and that this incarnation of the Doctor will die and transform into Peter Capaldi at the end, everything else for now is a mystery, and usually it's a good thing to keep some things unknown when it comes to Doctor Who! However there are some unconfirmed major *SPOILERS* discovered by The Sun newspaper that you may want to read. If you do then highlight the white section below with your mouse to reveal them!

The planet is Trenzalore, the last resting place of the Doctor, as seen in "The Name of the Doctor". He and his enemies are drawn to the planet by a bell in a tower that rings across the Universe. In the image below you can see Peter Capaldi's face in the fire between the Doctor's hand and Clara's. You can also see arms sticking out of the snow bottom left (Weeping Angels?). The Doctor will take part in a 300 year long battle but Clara will stay inside the Tardis only appearing when summoned. The Doctor will lose a leg (turned to stone) by being attacked by Weeping Angels before he regenerates! The Daleks (wooden and metal) and Sontarans will also return. The time cracks featured in series 5 (Amy Pond's first season) with be explained with connections to the 300 year war being the start of the phenomenon. The cracks are due to Gallifrey and it's salvation having changed and two points in time that should never meet causing the cracks. One massive crack will open at the end of the episode during a fight with the Daleks which will show us show some familiar characters solving a logistical problem which also includes the Doctor's limited regeneration conundrum! The Timelords themselves will supposedly appear through the time crack and grant the Doctor a new set of regenerations for saving Gallifrey and Trenzalore which will culminate with the biggest and most spectacular "electric light show" regeneration ever filmed for the show... Wow.

Below is the new teaser image followed by two posters that popped up today, however I can't confirm that they're not just fan-made at this point...
