If like me you loved last year's Doctor Who Christmas Day episode, The Snowmen, then you'll love this selection of original costumes and props featured in the seasonal special on display at the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff Bay on May 20, 2013, which will hopefully get you in the festive mood with the Holidays fast approaching.
If you like these outfits and props, be sure to check out these other original costumes and props from previous Doctor Who Christmas Specials, including the fantastic Wooden King and Queen from The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe from 2011.
The darker tones and fabrics, plus more formal tailoring of his Victorian England-inspired costume was meant to reflect the somber mood of the doctor during his 'retirement' from action.
Behind the actor's costume you can also see the huge, glass snow-globe prop which housed The Great Intelligence, with the snow within moving and swirling to mimic Doctor Simeon's emotional state.

She has a 'Sherlock Holmes and Watson' detective style relationship with her human female companion 'Jenny Flint'. Plus along with the Sontaran clone 'Strax' the trio are sometimes known as the 'Paternoster Gang', a group of detectives active in Victorian London named after Paternoster Row.
This is the cloaked Victorian costume she wears in The Snowmen and she often wears a veil over her face to hide her reptilian nature.
If you're a fellow Whovian, be sure to check out more original costumes and props from Doctor Who on display as we countdown to the next regeneration of the Doctor, from Matt Smith into Peter Capaldi.
A whole new universe of space-time adventures awaits.
