The Snowmen is the 8th Christmas special since Doctor Who‘s 2005 revival. It was written by head writer and executive producer Steven Moffat and directed by Saul Metzstein.
The episode is set in the Victorian era and sees the Doctor (Matt Smith) brooding with the assistance of Silurian Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh), her wife Jenny Flint (Catrin Stewart) and Sontaran Strax (Dan Starkey), after the loss of companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams in the previous episode, The Angels Take Manhattan. He is forced out of hiding to investigate mysterious snowmen that are building themselves and meets Clara Oswald (played by Jenna Coleman), a governess also investigating the snowmen. They discover that the snowmen are being animated by the Great Intelligence (voiced by Ian McKellen) with the help of a man named Dr Simeon (Richard E. Grant).
In addition to Clara, The Snowmen also introduces a redesigned TARDIS, revised title sequence and theme music, and sees changes to the Doctor’s costume.
