Along with a magnificent new teaser image, the BBC has released the synopsis for this year’s Christmas special, Twice Upon A Time:
The magical final chapter of the Twelfth Doctor’s (Peter Capaldi) journey sees the Time Lord team up with his former self, the first ever Doctor (David Bradley- Harry Potter, Game of Thrones) and a returning Bill Potts (Pearl Mackie), for one last adventure.
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…
The 60 minute Christmas special is written by Steven Moffat, directed by Rachel Talalay, and executive produced by Brian Minchin.
The episode will be broadcast in the UK on BBC One on Christmas Day.
