Doctor Who Christmas Special

While it's movies that usually take center stage on Christmas Day, this Christmas brings a very special episode of Doctor Who. The Doctor Who 2013 Christmas Special is called "The Time of the Doctor," and it features the end of Matt Smith's time as the Doctor.

In "The Time of the Doctor" episode, 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.
