The festive special entitled 'The Snowmen' is set in Victorian London, and sees the Doctor attempt to combat an army of evil snowmen with icy fangs.
In the clip, Jenny and Vastra confront the evil Doctor Simeon, played by Richard E Grant.
The Christmas special is the first time that viewers will be introduced to the Doctor's new companion Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman).
Coleman has already featured in a Doctor Who episode earlier in the year, but the actress has insisted that her role as Clara in 'The Snowmen' is "different" to her 'Asylum of the Daleks' character Oswin.
The Doctor Who Christmas special will air on December 25 at 5.15pm on BBC One in the UK, and at 9/8c on BBC America in the US.
