'Tis the season for The Doctor Who Christmas Special, and here's a sleighs of nine new images from the farewell episode of the 11th (or 13th) doctor, titled The Time of the Doctor.  These festive shots were released by the BBC, with a wood-grained Cyberman, Daleks on extermination parade and the shimmer of holiday lights.

Here's the 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.

The Doctor Who Christmas Special airs on Dec. 25, 2013.

Will you miss Matt Smith, or are you looking forward to a fresh new Time Lord.?
