The First Doctor, the Twelfth Doctor and a war captain from WWI walk into a T.A.R.D.I.S…
The Doctor Who Christmas Special is a little over a month away, and we’ve got a sneak peek that classic and new Whovians are sure to love!
This year’s Christmas Special will have the Twelfth Doctor meeting himself before he regenerates, and today’s clip shows us something we didn’t know we needed until now: The First Doctor seeing a modern version of the T.A.R.D.I.S.
David Bradley reprises his role as the First Doctor, which honestly is the best casting choice in the world, and seeing him be disgusted at how his T.A.R.D.I.S. has changed is truly hysterical.
Even more hysterical: When he realizes that Twelve is actually a future regeneration of himself.
The synopsis of this year’s Christmas special reads:
“Two Doctors stranded in a forbidding snowscape, refusing to face regeneration. And a British army captain seemingly destined to die in the First World War, but taken from the trenches to play his part in the Doctor’s story. This is the magical last chapter in the twelfth Doctor’s epic adventure. He must face his past to decide his future. And the Doctor will realise the resilience of humanity, discovering hope in his darkest frozen moment. It’s the end of an era. But the Doctor’s journey is only just beginning.”
The end of the Christmas Special will see Capaldi’s Doctor regenerating into Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor, and the final minutes will be the start of a whole new era brought in by Chris Chibnall, Doctor Who‘s new showrunner.
Running at an exciting 60 minutes (15 more than the standard Christmas Special), we’re going to be in for a treat this holiday season! Are you excited for a new era?
