With less than a month to go until Christmas Day and Peter Capaldi’s last stand as the Doctor, the BBC have dropped a key new publicity shot from that final festive special along with an updated synopsis.
- Is Doctor Who the show you couldn’t live without on Christmas Day? Tell us about your Christmas TV traditions!
- If you were in charge of the TV schedules, which Doctor Who special would you show over and over and over again? Vote for your favourite
And with time ticking away until we get to see the episode – which includes David Bradley’s much anticipated turn as the First Doctor – fans are wrestling with some complex emotions about the whole thing…
I absolutely love this & can't wait to see it but I don't want Peter to go and I'm looking forward to seeing Jodie. Very, very bittersweet.

I can't wait for Christmas!! I'm very excited to see Capaldi's last adventure as the Twelfth Doctor! I might cry when 12 has his last moments before 13 pops up

I'm excited! Can't wait. I like changes, but i'll miss Capaldi ?

And as the big day approaches, we’re sure these mixed-up happy-sad feelings will only increase (surely there’s some sort of German word for this feeling?) – but as one fan noted, there’s really only one way to get through this difficult time.

So that’s the plan, folks – let’s make this Christmas a good’un.
Doctor Who returns to BBC1 this Christmas
