Well here’s something a bit new – a very advance trailer for the 2016 Doctor Who Christmas special that’s also a gag reel that comes before the Blu-ray release. We’re not sure what Doctor Twelve would make of the fact it uses Doctor Eleven’s theme music, though.
Titled “The Return Of Doctor Mysterio,” (side note: the Spanish translation of the show’s title is Doctor Mysterio, so probably an in-joke), the episode will feature The Doctor joining forces with an investigative journalist, played by Charity Wakefield (Wolf Hall, The Player) and a superhero played by Justin Chatwin (Orphan Black, War of the Worlds) to save New York from a deadly alien threat.
“I’ve always loved superheroes and this Christmas Doctor Who dives into that world,” says Steven Moffat. “My favourite superhero is Clark Kent. Not Superman, Clark Kent.”
Matt Lucas (returning as Nardole) will also star along with Adetomiwa Edun (Lucifer, Bates Motel), Aleksandar Jovanovic and Logan Hoffman. “The Return Of Doctor Mysterio” is Ed Bazalgette (Poldark).
