Doctor Who fans are experiencing some very complex emotions ahead of the Christmas special

"I can't wait but I don't want Peter Capaldi to go"

Doctor Who

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.


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…

And we mean REALLY complex.

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.
