The Doctor Hits The Big Apple
♦Details and a trailer have come out for this Christmas’s Doctor Who Special so here’s that first look and a little info on it…
This Christmas, the Doctor teams up with a comic-book superhero in New York for a heroic special titled, The Return of Doctor Mysterio.
We also have a brand new image and a behind-the-scenes trailer to share.
The Return of Doctor Mysterio sees the Twelfth Doctor, as played by Peter Capaldi, teaming up with an investigative journalist, played by Charity Wakefield (Wolf Hall), and a superhero to save New York from a deadly alien threat.
“Doctor Misterio”, as many fans will know is the name given to “Doctor Who” in Latin America. And Peter loves that name!
Justin Chatwin (Orphan Black, War of the Worlds) plays Grant – check out the G on his suit above. Chatwin comments on joining the Doctor Who team for the special:
“Working with the amazing people at Doctor Who has been one of the most fun and rewarding projects I’ve ever had the pleasure of being involved with.”
Matt Lucas (who returns as Nardole) will also be joining the cast of the special with Adetomiwa Edun (Lucifer, Bates Motel), German actor Aleksandar Jovanovic and Logan Huffman (US sci-fi series, V).
The Return of Doctor Mysterio is a 60-minute special written by Steven Moffat and directed by Ed Bazalgette (The Woman Who Lived and The Girl Who Died).
