Can you smell it? It's the smell of fire! Um ... we mean Christmas! The first official picture for the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special has just been released. And it's all fiery running action.

As you can see, once again our beloved Doctor (Matt Smith), aka that Mad Man in a Blue Box (sans Blue Box in the pic, however), is being a man of action and seems to be running toward something, his trusty sonic screwdriver in hand and a jet of dangerous flames behind him.

The pic does a good job of reminding us of the good ol' days of the 10th Doctor (David Tennant), when there was A LOT of running around going on.

So where is the Doctor? What's happening? Toward what menace is he pointing that sonic screwdriver? All questions that'll probably be answered only this Christmas, and we simply just. Can't. Wait.

For those of you who live in the U.K., you'll be able to see some new footage from the Who Christmas episode during tomorrow night's Children in Need special on the BBC, as well as a new ''surprising'' mini-episode.

Are you getting excited about the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special?
