Yetis For X-Mas on 'Doctor Who'?

DoctorWho_YetiBleeding Cool posted this illustration from designer Peter McKinstry that purports to be the internal structure of DOCTOR WHO’s old nemeses, the robotic Yeti’s.

The sometimes chilling, often kinda silly and cuddly-looking creatures are said to be featured in this year’s DOCTOR WHO Christmas special.
It’s not the first time Yetis were postulated to be un-earthly in origin. In the Cthulhu Mythos, the Yeti, (Mi-go or Mei-go) are said to be fungoid/crustacean extraterrestrials with strange motives, using furs at times to disguise their presence and true forms.
Nigel Kneale’s (THE QUATERMASS EXPERIMENT) Abominable Snowmen were mentally advanced (possible) extraterrestrials.
