When the Doctor Who Christmas Specia l airs tomorrow, "Whovians" everywhere will be saying goodbye Matt Smith as The Doctor.

BBC America has released a new trailer for the "Doctor Who" Christmas special, "The Time of the Doctor," that fills in a few gaps in the story we saw in previous clips. We now know that Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) pleads with the Doctor himself (Matt Smith) to "change the future" in order to save himself from the foes gathered to fight him on the planet Trenzalore, where he will soon be buried. "You will die in silence, Doctor," says one of the Daleks facing him. We also see The Silence, Cybermen and what looks to be a new foe, Tasha Lem (Orla Brady)

One resident voiced concern on neighborhood-centric site EveryBlock about their neighbor improperly dumping trash and furniture on their side of the alley. If that problem happens to you, Streets and Sanitation Department spokesman Matt Smith advised contacting 3-1-1 to report it. A ward supervisor can be called out to assess the situation and take action. Under the city's municipal code, it is unlawful to dump trash in somebody...

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)

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...

If you've never met Alan Kistler before, I think the best way to describe him is as "The Ron Burgandy of Geekdom. " Which is my way of telling non-geeks/nerds you may not know it, but he's kind of a big deal. While I don't really believe in "geek cred", if you ask Kistler for his you'll get an impressive resume: columnist and contributor for Comic Book Resources ; super hero fashion commentator ; co-host of " Crazy Sexy Geeks " with Jill Pantozzi; and one of the Hottest Geek Guys of 2012 (click HERE for the...

When "Doctor Who" next steps out of his time- and space-traveling police box, the TARDIS, he'll meet his new companion, Clara Oswald. He's not going to know what to think of her. That's because Clara, or 26-year-old Jenna-Louise Coleman actually, has appeared in the series twice before. In last fall's "The Asylum of the Daleks" episode, she was the futuristic, souffle-making Oswin, who was transformed into a Dalek. In the "Doctor Who" Christmas special, "The Snowmen," she was 18th century governess Clara Oswin Oswald, who the Doctor...

Like many 18-year-olds, Precious "Mya" Smith is learning how to set goals for herself: » Finish high school coursework. » Look into applying for college. Smith is particularly fond of Roosevelt University because of its intimate feel and its new Wabash Building, a glass tower ensconced in blue, her favorite color. » Find a home. This last goal is the one that keeps Smith up at night. Since December, she has been homeless, bouncing between The Crib and Safe Haven shelters in Chicago, and occasionally sleeping on the Red Line overnight.
