BBC America has released a brand-new trailer for Doctor Who's upcoming Christmas special episode "The Time of the Doctor." Are you ready to say goodbye to the Eleventh Doctor?

The new extended trailer features more tidbits about the Time War (the repercussions from the events of "The Day of the Doctor," no doubt), and Trenzalore and will be Matt Smith’s swan song in the role of the beloved Time Lord. Then the TARDIS will pass into Peter Capaldi's hopefully capable hands.

Here’s the BBC’s synopsis:

‘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.’

So, the Cybermen are back, the Silence are back, the Weeping Angels are back and so are those beloved space pepperpots the Daleks! Will the Doctor die in silence? (Knowing Matt Smith's Doctor, we doubt that very much.) And remember, “Silence Will Fall.”
