We've been waiting for the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special, "The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe," about as eagerly as we've been waiting for Christmas itself. This new one-minute prequel video will have us stewing like a plum pudding.

There's a million miles of tension packed within this one-minute video, and as we know, time and space are things the Doctor is absolutely familiar with. He is not, however, familiar with the workings of this particular spaceship.

We have our own thoughts. But first, you have to watch the video. Then see our comments below it.

IS THE DOCTOR OUT OF HIS MIND? Why is he calling Amy, who doesn't know how to fly the TARDIS, when he could be calling River, who does? Remember River, Doctor? You only married her in the last episode of season six.

Sheesh. Some Time Lords have such short memories.
