Three new clips from the Doctor Who Christmas special have been released online, which you can watch below.

The footage from The Doctor, The Widow And The Wardrobe has been unveiled as part of the interactive advent calendar over at BBC.co.uk/DoctorWho. After weeks of teasing, fans can now get their first glimpse of this year’s Narnia-inspired festive adventure.

In the first clip, The Doctor (Matt Smith) welcomes the Arwell family, evacuated from their homes during WWII, to their new home. But why is he posing as the caretaker? And what does he have to do with the family?

The second clip sees The Doctor and Lily following Cyril into a Narnia-like winter wonderland. But just what it is that her brother has been following? And what’s with those creepy baubles?

Finally, things take a turn for the strange in the third clip, as Madge is confronted in the forest by a gang of futuristic soldiers, including guest star Bill Bailey. But their technology, it turns out, is not always so reliable.

All will be revealed on Christmas Day at 7pm on BBC One. The Doctor, The Widow And The Wardrobe co-stars Claire Skinner, Bill Bailey and Arabella Weir.
