Thanks to RadioTimes, we have the very first Jenna(Clara) still from the Doctor Who Christmas Special!

There’s a sense of urgency to this first shot of the Doctor and his new companion in this year’s Christmas special. The Time Lord is clearly trying to communicate something of importance to Clara Oswin (if that is, indeed, her name). And while we’re desperate to know what it is, we’re also slightly distracted by what’s going on in the background – snow!
Of course, a Doctor Who Christmas special without it was pretty unthinkable but it’s good to have confirmation that, on TV at least, it will be a white Christmas after all… (source)

Doctor Who and his new companion played by Jenna-Louise Coleman will run into Vastra in the 2012 Christmas Special.

Airing at 9 p.m. ET on Tuesday, December 25, the special will feature the Doctor (Matt Smith) traveling through space and time and encountering Silurian Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh) and her cohort Jenny (Catrin Stewart). The special will also mark Jenna-Louise Coleman‘s official debut as the Doctor’s new companion. She previously appeared in the Season 7 premiere.

Executive producer Steven Moffat penned the special. Season 7 of “Doctor Who” will continue in 2013. Neil Gaiman will write an episode featuring the legendary Cybermen.

Gaiman’s episode will feature guest stars Warwick Davis, Tamzin Outhwaite and Jason Watkins as “misfits on a mysterious planet.”

“Cybermen were always the monsters that scared me the most! Not just because they were an awesome military force, but because sometimes they could be sleek and silver and right behind you without you even knowing,”
Moffat told BBC. “And with one of the all-time classic monsters returning, and a script from one of our finest novelists, it’s no surprise we have attracted such stellar names as Tamzin, Jason and Warwick.”
