Here are some new pics from this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special, “The Return of Doctor Mysterio” which has now been confirmed for broadcast at 5.45 on Christmas Day. To be perfectly honest, it’s all looking a bit gaudy and sitcommy at the moment (and very studio-bound; those New York backdrops are fooling no one) but the promo pics rarely reveal the big picture (the pre-publicity for “Last Christmas” made a big deal of Nick Frost as Santa and not a mention mention of alien face-huggers, for example). But after last year’s lightweight romp it would have been a nice change not to have something quite so… lightweight again. Who’s for a full-on Sontaran vs Cyberman war for Christmas 2017?
