Xmas Special title AND preview revealed!
Christmas has come early for Doctor Who fans today as the BBC have given us our first taste of what lies ahead in this year’s long awaited festive adventure!
As previously reported, the seasonal escapade will feature the reintroduction of Matt Lucas as Nardole, exactly one year after his understated debut in The Husbands of River Song. The anticipated adventure now also has a name too, with its intriguing title – The Return of Doctor Mysterio – alluding to Justin Chatwin’s guest role as a superhero called Grant. It is written by Steven Moffat and directed by Ed Bazalgette.
And that’s not all! We’ve also been treated to a first look preview (they really know how to spoil us, eh?) which was delivered in the form of a special montage made up of clips and behind the scenes footage. It is guaranteed to leave you feeling all warm and tingly inside!
The episode – aptly billed as a “heroic special” – will be set in New York as the Doctor joins forces with an investigative journalist played by Charity Wakefield. Adetomiwa Edun, Logan Hoffman and Aleksandar Jovanovic also star. Let the countdown begin! Just 78 days to go…
