'Doctor Who' has never had any trouble attracting the UK's top actors for guest spots, recent years featuring the likes of Michael Gambon, Kylie Minogue and Timothy Dalton, but its greyest star might have outshone them all. We've been following news of the 2012 'Doctor Who' Christmas Special "The Snowmen" for some time, but no news has been so huge as that of Gandalf himself, Sir Ian McKellen guesting in the episode! Find out who Ian McKellen will bring to life in the 'Doctor Who' universe inside!

For the almost-50 years that the UK's iconic 'Doctor Who' has existed in the realm of the public consciousness, perhaps no token has proved as recognizable, or enduring as The Doctor's legendary method of travel, his blue police box the TARDIS. The good Doctor could certainly not have achieved such notoriety without his legions of dedicated fans, one of whom in Australia has taken it on himself to perfectly re-create the interior of the Doctor's famous box in his home! Are you ready to step inside the real TARDIS?
While the 2012 'Doctor Who' Christmas special "The Snowmen" won't officially debut until - you guessed it - Christmas, The BBC has been kind and generous enough not to make our wait too arduous. In addition to the earlier clips, trailer and photos we've scouted, the network has released an official poster and synopsis of the episode, which will introduce Jenna-Louise Coleman as the Doctor's new companion Clara and pit the two against some seriously wicked snowmen. Ready for a look, then? Geronimo!
Along with drunken relatives, regret, and intolerable cheeriness, one thing about the holidays never fails to entertain: The 'Doctor Who' Christmas special! This years' holiday outing for everyone's favorite Time Lord will introduce our new companion Clara ('Captain America's Jenna-Louise Coleman) as well as bring back a host of Whovian favorites. We've already seen the pulse-pounding trailer for 'The Snowmen" and even a mini-sode preview, but how would you like to see the first photos of the Christmas special?
Sure, the end of the year brings plenty of wonderful things, like Christmas, family, hot chocolate and cuddly-wuddlies (yeah, we said it), but 'Doctor Who' fans know it by something else; a new Christmas special! The Doctor's back, and he's better than ever in the 2012 holiday episode, now that we've all gotten over our grieving from the Ponds' departure. The 2012 Christmas Special will also mark the first official turn of Jenna-Louise Coleman as the Doctor's new companion, so take a look in the trailer and bonus minisode!
Easy fanboys, it's not what you think. We've been hearing a lot of cross-franchise pollination over the past week, particularly since Disney shelled out $4.05 billion for the rights to 'Star Wars,' effectively placing Pixar, Marvel and a galaxy far, far away under the same roof. That collection may grow in the future, but for now, Doctor Who (David Tennant)'s upcoming appearance on 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' is strictly voiceover. Find out who the former Doctor plays inside!
Doctor Who fans, be nervous! Or excited! It all depends on how you feel about the Doctor's current companions Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill). This Saturday in the episode “The Angels Take Manhattan,” the two are set to leave the Doctor (Matt Smith) at 9pm EST, 6pm PST. But before that happens, there's an hour long documentary called "Doctor Who in the U.S." Take a look at a clip from it.
The talk on everyone's lips this week is both that of Rian Johnson's "Joe Go Lev" sci-fi time-travel actioner 'Looper,' opening Friday, as well as Saturday's pivotal 'Doctor Who' that says goodbye to several fan-favorite characters. We'd even heard a bit about 'The Hobbit' director Peter Jackson looking to try his hand at directing 'Doctor Who,' but what are the odds that Rian Johnson's next big project could trade 'Looper's for the TARDIS?
For all the overseas talent that doesn't get its due recognition at award ceremonies like the Emmys, 'Doctor Who' has long been one of our favorites. Recently, 'Doctor Who' and 'Lord of the Rings' fans alike were delighted to hear that interest had been expressed back and forth for director Peter Jackson to helm a New Zealand-based 'Doctor Who' episode, but could it actually happen? And when would the episode shoot?
As if we needed more proof that Stetsons were cool. The good 'Doctor Who' returns this Friday with "A Town Called Mercy," the third of five all-new series 7 episodes that will carry us into the Holiday special while simultaneously saying goodbye to companions Amy and Rory Pond. So far this season we've seen our Doctor confront zombie Daleks (with a surprising twist), and square off against dinosaurs on a spaceship, but what could go wrong with "A Town Called Mercy," as the latest clip suggests?
