San Diego Comic-Con Brought Us the First Look at the Doctor Who Christmas Special


Yesterday BBC AMERICA released the first-look teaser of the highly-anticipated Doctor Who Christmas Special, as well as a trailer of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor, during its Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con.

We learned a couple of things from the trailer. First, it will be called ‘Twice Upon a Time.’ Second, it was revealed that Pearl Mackie’s Bill Potts will return! I may have screamed a little when I heard her voice. Viewers will have to wait until Christmas to discover exactly how Bill, who will appear throughout the episode, makes her return.

It was also revealed that the special will co-star Mark Gatiss in a guest role – as a World War One soldier, known so far only as ‘The Captain.’

As previously revealed in the closing moments of the season finale, the special will feature Peter Capaldi’s current Doctor team up with the First Doctor, played by David Bradley. Peter Capaldi will return for his final episode of Doctor Who this Christmas. You can get ready to say goodbye by watching this retrospective of his 12th Doctor. Maybe get your tissues ready.
