the-doctors-will-return-at-christmas

As revealed at the end of last night’s Series 10 finale (and in keeping with recent tabloid reports…), this year’s Christmas Special will be a multi-Doctor adventure featuring David Bradley as the First Doctor.

The actor – who previously portrayed William Hartnell in the 50th anniversary biopic An Adventure in Space and Time – made his surprise appearance in the closing moments of The Doctor Falls, which saw the Time Lord’s current incarnation being taken in the TARDIS to an unknown location as his latest regeneration began. Cue the closing titles…

The festive adventure will be Peter Capaldi’s final episode as the Doctor, as well as Steven Moffat’s last story as showrunner, and it looks like they’ll both be going out with a mighty bang as the past, present and future collide… literally! But what did you make of the chilling cliffhanger, and what are your hopes and expectations for the Christmas Special?

Above – The past and present collide as the Twelfth and First Doctors unite, this Christmas.

The Doctors will return at Christmas! Are you excited to see the Twelfth and First Doctors unite for Peter Capaldi's final adventure?

The BBC have released a brand new poster for the Series 10 finale which will kick off in World Enough and Time next weekend.

Unless you’ve been living inside a Vault (too soon…?) for the last few months, you’ll already know that this year’s two-part conclusion – described as “an epic adventure that will change Doctor Who forever” - will mark the return of John Simm as the Master. Last seen on our screens in The End of Time in 2010, this time his character will be joining forces with his successor, Missy, as played by Michelle Gomez.

Their on screen encounter – which outgoing showrunner Steven Moffat has promised is “a real treat” - has inspired this brilliant image paying homage to the artwork for the 50th anniversary special. Basically, it’s The Day of the Master, which totally should’ve been the title of the episode. Let us know what you think of the poster in the comments below…

Above – Michelle Gomez and John Simm will join forces in this year’s epic two-part finale.

World Enough and Time airs next Saturday – 24th June – at 6:45pm on BBC One.
