Doctor Who 'Christmas Invasion' countdown part three

Earlier tonight, just before Top Gear aired on BBC TWO here in the U.K. a preview trailer for the Doctor Who Christmas Day special, The Christmas Invasion splashed across my television screen. Thankfully, Top Gear is on my Sky+ planner (with five minutes padding on either side of the show), so the trailer recorded.
The most recent preview is 30-seconds long, and features plenty of mouth-watering action from the forthcoming special, including a fantastic action shot of the TARDIS crash-landing on a London council estate, and a shot of 30 St. Mary's Axe being destroyed by an invading alien force.
Some familiar characters from the recent series are also back, including Rose Tyler's boyfriend, Mickey Smith, her mum Jackie and Harriet Jones (MP for Flydale North, but now Prime Minister of Great Britain) along with some serious looking aliens called the Sycorax.
Thankfully, it's also available on the Doctor Who website in Real Media format (for those without Sky+) and you can find out more about the special at the WikiPedia entry (warning: spoilers).
