After a long wait for new DOCTOR WHO content, with the main series taking a year off, we have a feast today thanks to the new teaser for Class and our first look at the annual Christmas special. Titled DOCTOR WHO: THE RETURN OF DOCTOR MYSTERIO, there’s definitely a superhero vibe to the behind-the-scenes featurette.
The episode sees the Doctor joining forces with an investigative journalist (Charity Wakefield) and a superhero (Justin Chatwin) to save New York from a deadly alien threat. Matt Lucas and Adetomiwa Edun will also join Peter Capaldi for the special.
The 60-minute episode, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Ed Bazalgette, will air on BBC One on Christmas Day is the US and UK. It will screen in Australia on 26 December 2016, as is our Boxing Day curse and tradition. At least we probably would have spent the painful wait at the beach or recovering from a food hangover. After all, it will have been a year since the last DOCTOR WHO episode, so what’s another day?
