"Doctor Who" tells a good, old-fashioned ghost story this weekend. "We are in a haunted house in the '70s with Dougray Scott and Jessica Raine," Jenna-Louise Coleman told me, then whispered. "And it's scaaary. " In "Hide," airing at 7 p.m. CT April 20 on BBC America, Clara (Coleman) and the Doctor (Matt Smith) pop up in 1974 outside a remote mansion called Caliburn House where paranormal researcher Alec Palmer (Scott) and psychic Emma Grayling (Raine) are trying to contact a ghost called the Witch of the Well that has appeared throughout the history of the building.

In the episode debuting at 7 p.m. CT April 13 on BBC America, the Doctor (Matt Smith) and Clara (Coleman) land the TARDIS in 1983 and inside a Russian nuclear submarine whose captain (played by "Games of Thrones" actor Liam Cunningham) is already dealing with another surprise guest--an Ice Warrior.

The network Thursday released details about the midseason premiere, "The Bells of St. John," as well as the clue-filled poster and trailer (watch below).

Doctor Who gets a kiss from his new companion in the latest trailer for this year's Christmas special, titled "The Snowmen. " Clara, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, and the Doctor (Matt Smith) set off on their first adventure together as they attempt to save Christmas from Doctor Simeon and his army of scary snowmen. It isn't clear if Clara is somehow related to Oswin, Coleman's character in the "Asylum of the Daleks" episode, but I have a sneaking suspicion she is. "She is from the Victorian era and a mysterious one," Coleman...

They're getting closer and closer ... the Snowmen, that is. BBC America late Monday released an image of the monsters Doctor Who will face in the 2012 Christmas special, called, not too coincidentally, "The Snowmen. " The network also released a poster for the special, which will debut 8 p.m. CT Dec. 25. "The Snowmen" stars Matt Smith as the Doctor and introduces Jenna-Louise Coleman as his new companion, Clara. They embark on a mission to save Christmas from the villainous Doctor Simeon (Richard E Grant)
