First look at the Doctor Who Christmas Special


We won’t be getting a new season of Doctor Who until 2017, but BBC did promise a Christmas Special. So, in celebrating Doctor Who at NYCC last weekend, BBC America has released a first look into the Doctor Who Christmas Special.

During the panel, it was revealed the Doctor will be working with a superhero named Doctor MYSTERIO, played by Justin Chatwin. Moffat said during the panel that the character came from his passion for Superman when he was kid. We will also see the return of NardoleĀ (Matt Lucas), who we last saw in The Husbands of River Song, for this Christmas Special. Unfortunately, we will not see Pearl Mackie’s Bill just yet. Moffat confirmed we will see her in 2017.

Check out the trailer for the upcoming Christmas special below:

The Doctor Who Christmas Special will air on Christmas Day 2016.
