After months of build up, the time has come for Matt Smith to say goodbye on "Doctor Who." His final Christmas special, "The Time of the Doctor," brings about his departure in the midst of all kinds of Whovian insanity, from Daleks to the Silence, Weeping Angels to Cybermen. The episode will also introduce the new Doctor (Peter Capaldi).
It's bound to be an emotional farewell to Smith, who has portrayed the role for three seasons, during the show's popularity explosion in the United States. This is the first new episode of the show since the epic 50th anniversary spectacular that saw the 11th Doctor teaming up with his predecessor David Tennant for an adventure through space and time.
Follow along with Zap2it as we say goodbye to Smith and hello to Capaldi, while hopefully getting a glimpse of what to expect from the new Doctor in terms of personality. »
