As usual, "Doctor Who" is pulling out all the stops for their annual Christmas special. Every year the Doctor goes on an epic holiday adventure, and this year is Matt Smith's last as he is leaving the role at the end of the episode.

New photos released from "The Time of the Doctor" show the Smith and his companion Clara ( Jenna Coleman) set against a snowy backdrop, with one image showing the Doctor carrying the head of a Cyberman. There should be a good story behind that one. They don't give anything away that hasn't been seen in the posters for the special episode, but the shot of the Doctor using his sonic screwdriver is a nice visual for Smith's final outing in the role.

"The Time of the Doctor" airs December 25 at 9 p.m. ET on BBC America.
