Don’t mean to pressure you Whovians, but you should definitely cut your family festivities short this year and travel to a US Who cinema screening. The upcoming Christmas special will be shown in American theatres on 27th December, alongside some bonus features.
These include a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of the special, and a retrospective of lead Peter Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffat, both of whom are leaving the sci-fi series this year.
The pieces will be shown after the special itself, Twice Upon a Time, which – as you definitely know by now – will feature Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor coming face-to-face with David Bradley’s First Doctor. Plus, former companion Bill (Pearl Mackie) will make an appearance, as will Mark Gatiss, playing “The Captain” (a mysterious character we have a few thoughts about).
