We've got an early and exciting Christmas present for you all this morning: 18 brand-new and totally awesome promo and behind-the-scenes pics from Doctor Who's upcoming Christmas special ''The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrode.''

Below is the synopsis for the very Narnia-esque Xmas special that's, once again, written by Steven Moffat:

It's Christmas Eve, 1938, when Madge Arwell comes to the aid of an injured Spaceman Angel as she cycles home, in this year's Doctor Who Christmas Special, starring Matt Smith as the Doctor.

He promises to repay her kindness - all she has to do is make a wish.

Three years later, a devastated Madge escapes war-torn London with her two children for a dilapidated house in Dorset. She is crippled with grief at the news her husband has been lost over the channel, but determined to give Lily and Cyril the best Christmas ever.

The Arwells are surprised to be greeted by a madcap caretaker whose mysterious Christmas gift leads them into a magical wintry world. Here, Madge will learn how to be braver than she ever thought possible. And that wishes can come true...

Doctor Who ''The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe'' is set to air on Christmas Day in the U.K. (7pm BBC One), U.S. (9/8c BBC America) and Canada (9 p.m. on Space).

We know exactly where we'll be on Dec. 25—anxiously sitting in front of our TVs, enjoying the last Who we'll see for a looong time.

How about you? And what do you think of the pics?
