Happy Early Christmas, Whovians! In anticipation of the ‘Doctor Who’ Christmas Special, the BBC One website has launched an interactive ‘Doctor Who’ Adventure Calendar as a way to countdown to the big episode! Each day includes a seasonal selection of videos, galleries and more. Fans can unlock one each day as they await Christmas Day!
‘Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time’ serves as the final chapter of the Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor. The episode sees the Time Lord team up with his former self, the first ever Doctor, played by David Bradley (‘Harry Potter,’ ‘Game of Thrones’) and a returning Bill Potts (Pearl Mackie), for one last adventure. An official synopsis for the episode reads:
Two Doctors stranded in an Arctic snowscape, refusing to face regeneration. Enchanted glass people, stealing their victims from frozen time. And a World War One captain destined to die on the battlefield, but taken from the trenches to play his part in the Doctor’s story.
An uplifting new tale about the power of hope in humanity’s darkest hours, ‘Twice Upon A Time’ marks the end of an era. But as the Doctor must face his past to decide his future, his journey is only just beginning…
‘Twice Upon a Time’ is written by Steven Moffat, directed by Rachel Talalay, and executive produced by Brian Minchin. The 60 minute special guest stars Mark Gatiss as The Captain and Nikki Amuka-Bird as the voice of the glass woman, and will see Peter Capaldi’s Doctor regenerate into the Thirteenth Doctor (Jodie Whittaker).
