It’s Here, It’s Here! First Look at This Year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special


Whee! If there was ever a moment we really needed to be whisked away by a punk rock star in a time machine, it is now. Here’s your first look at this year’s Christmas Special, “The Return of Doctor Mysterio” and break out the crackers, because there’s a little cheese …



Nardole (Matt Lucas) is back, and our sushi eating — is this really a good time for sushi? — Doctor has teamed with an investigative reporter (Charity Wakefield) in New York City, which is dealing with an unknown alien threat (*coughTrumpcough*?) It looks like a grand old time and I don’t know about you, but I’ve really missed Peter Capaldi’s glorious Twelve.






The Doctor Who Christmas Special is written by Steven Moffat, directed by Edward Bazalgette (Class, Poldark, Casualty) and airs on BBC America … well, you know.

This Saturday evening, you can catch Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks, the “hand-drawn black and white animation, synchronized with a digitally remastered recording of the original 1966 audio”, which was first broadcast in the UK only once, 50 years ago.
