Santa Claus is coming to town in this year's Doctor Who Christmas special.

Doctor Who: Where are they now?

Fittingly, Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead) will play Kris Kringle on the annual special. A new teaser for the event shows The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) in the North Pole, where they'll go up against some terrifying (and slimy-looking) foes.

Check out the trailer below:

The Doctor Who Christmas special will air on BBC America on Christmas Day. The Season 8 finale of Doctor Who airs tonight at 9/8c on BBC America.
