That’s a wrap on this year’s Christmas Special

Filming on this year’s Christmas Special has officially wrapped in Cardiff which means that Peter Capaldi has filmed his final scenes as the Doctor.

Various members of the show’s crew have taken to Twitter to toast the actor, as well as showrunner Steven Moffat, on completing their last episode, which will air on Christmas Day. The accompanying wrap party was “bittersweet” according to casting director Andy Pryor, while series brand manager Edward Russell revealed that the festivities included a video message from Christopher Eccleston. Fantastic!

As confirmed in the closing moments of the Series 10 finale, the festive adventure will star David Bradley as the First Doctor, and recent rumours have suggested that his won’t be the only familiar face returning to bid the Twelfth Doctor adieu. We’ll have to wait and see what other shocks and surprises lie in store, but our first sneak peak of it will be debuted at San Diego Comic-Con later this month (23rd July), so that’s something to look forward to.

Of course, this does mean that the Thirteenth Doctor may have already filmed his/her first scene, as the era of Chris Chibnall begins. But who will it be? As always, only time will tell…

    I’d like to think that the 13th Doctor has filmed their first scenes, as they usually have to stand in a similar place and position to recover at the end of regeneration (even though we obviously never saw the 11th Doctor’s face change as we did with 9th and 10th).

    If they have, I’m guessing the BBC won’t be able to contain the secret for too long, but we’ll have to see.
