The Doctor Who Christmas specials have become an important part of the season for many of us, and we always hang out for more details on the next one.

The BBC’s American arm accidentally released a synopsis for this year’s Chrissie episode, Twice Upon a Time, which will be our farewell to Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor. It seems they were a tad over-eager to promote the forthcoming DVD and it’s since been removed, but net ninjas that we are, we snaffled it quickly.

It goes beyond the teaser released back in July (below), and does contain minor spoilers, so please stop reading now if that’s going to annoy you.

Here goes…

“Two Doctors stranded in a forbidding snowscape, refusing to face regeneration. And a British army captain seemingly destined to die in the First World War, but taken from the trenches to play his part in the Doctor’s story.

‘This is the magical last chapter in the Twelfth Doctor’s epic adventure. He must face his past to decide his future. And the Doctor will realise the resilience of humanity, discovering hope in his darkest frozen moment.

‘It’s the end of an era. But the Doctor’s journey is only just beginning.’”
