Filming for Doctor Who's upcoming Christmas special is in full swing, and we've got a couple of set pics in which the Doctor (Matt Smith) looks quite dapper in period clothing and a large top hat—top hats are now cool, too—while his new companion Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) runs after him—plus we also have two new videos to share.

So our fave Time Lord, played by Matt Smith, and his new companion Clara, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, were shot last night filming some new scenes for the Christmas special in Bristol.

The streets were transformed to reflect the 1890s setting of the storyline, which also calls for some snowy London streets. (There's no Who Christmas special without snow. This is known.)

According to Doctor Who TV street reporter Ryan Farrell, the Doctor tells someone, "Take her back where you found her!"

In another scene, Clara chases after our Time Lord, but he won't stop, riding away in a horse and cart saying, "She's not my problem," while Clara falls over in the snow.

You can have a look at the videos by Farrell below.
