SPACE confirms The Snowmen for Christmas Day

Canadian channel SPACE have confirmed that, like BBC America in the United States, they will be broadcasting the Christmas Special The Snowmen on Christmas Day at 9:00pm ET.

Tuesday, Dec.25 – Wednesday, Dec. 26 : DOCTOR WHO MARATHON

Holy sonic screwdrivers! On Christmas Day, viewers get to relive Season 7 of DOCTOR WHO, followed by SPACE’s favourite time-traveling tradition – the premiere of the 2012 DOCTOR WHO Christmas special, The Snowmen. This year’s holiday escapade introduces a new companion, a new look for the Doctor, and a new monster.

Starring Matt Smith as the Doctor, and introducing Jenna-Louise Coleman as his new companion Clara, The Snowmen follows their adventures as they embark on a mission to save Christmas from the villainous Doctor Simeon (Richard E Grant, The Iron Lady, Dracula) and his army of icy snowmen. Then, the marathon to end all marathons continues with a TARDIS full of Time Lord-themed holiday specials.

4 p.m. ET – DOCTOR WHO Season 7 Marathon
9 p.m. ET – THE SNOWMEN *SPACE Premiere*
10:30 p.m. ET – BEST OF CHRISTMAS SPECIALS

Australian broadcaster ABC announced at the weekend that they would be showing it locally on Boxing Day at 7:30pm; the BBC have yet to confirm time of broadcast in the UK, though in previous years it has been scheduled between 6:00-7:00pm.
