Though it looks like the “Doctor Who” Christmas special will be jam-packed with action and excitement, that doesn’t mean there’s no fun to be had. A trailer from BBC One, highlighting their Christmas programming, features a very tiny clip from “The Time of the Doctor” and one of the funnier moments on the show in some time.
In the scene, Clara (Jenna Coleman) introduces the Doctor (Matt Smith) to what is presumably her family. It’s hard to explain the Doctor to some people though, so she simply introduces him as her boyfriend. The Doctor, playing the part, then gives her a little smack on the behind. Not quite what you’d normally expect from everyone’s favorite Time Lord, making it an even funnier moment.
Luckily, Zap2it has also captured the moment in animated GIF form, to watch again and again. Enjoy. “The Time of the Doctor” airs December 25 at 9 p.m. ET on BBC America.
