Twelve months without a new Doctor Who episode was tough.
Fortunately, the 2016 Christmas Special will tide Whovians over until Season 10 airs in April. Writer Steven Moffat jumps on the superhero bandwagon for the 2016 festive episode, which sees Peter Capaldi’s Doctor teaming up with a Lois Lane type (Charity Wakefield) and a masked crime fighter (Justin Chatwin) to save New York from brain-swapping aliens. Little Britain star Matt Lucas also returns for his second consecutive Who Christmas romp and appears to have become a temporary companion, at least until the arrival of Pearl Mackie this year. Keep him in the TARDIS, we say.
Release Date: 22 February 2017
