Friday, we brought you the first look at the awesome trailer for the highly anticipated Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol, which will air Christmas Day on both sides of the pond, and today comes not only the official synopsis, but also the first promo pictures for this special holiday episode.

OK, so the two pics are basically identical—the BBC seems to like doing that. They show special guest stars Sir Michael Gambon (Harry Potter's Dumbledore) as the Scrooge-like Kazran Sardick and opera singer Katherine Jenkins in her very first television role, as well as Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor.

Here's the BBC official synopsis:

Amy and Rory are trapped on a crashing space liner, and the only way The Doctor can rescue them is to save the soul of a lonely old miser, in a festive edition of the time-travelling adventure, written by Steven Moffat. But is Kazran Sardick, the richest man in Sardicktown, beyond redemption? And what is lurking in the fogs of Christmas Eve?

Amy Pond is played by Karen Gillan, Rory Williams by Arthur Darvill, The Doctor by Matt Smith and Kazran Sardick by Michael Gambon.


We think the pics look pretty cool. How about you?
