Doctor Who Christmas special synopsis, promo art released

Doctor Who Christmas special "The Return of Doctor Mysterio"A new synopsis and promotional image has been released for the Doctor Who Christmas special, “The Return of Doctor Mysterio.”

This Christmas sees the Doctor join forces with a masked Superhero for an epic New York adventure. With brain-swapping aliens poised to attack, the Doctor and Nardole link up with an investigative reporter and a mysterious figure known only as The Ghost. Can the Doctor save Manhattan? And what will be revealed when we see behind the mask?

Peter Capaldi stars as the Doctor, Matt Lucas (Bridesmaids, Little Britain) as Nardole, Justin Chatwin (Orphan Black, Shameless) as Grant and Charity Wakefield (Wolf Hall, The Player) as an investigative journalist.

Fans will, of course, remember Nardole (or at least his head) from the last Christmas episode, “The Husbands of River Song.”

Besides the Christmas Day happenings, BBC America announced there will be a Doctor Who takeover marathon leading up to the new episode — the series’ first in a year — and that the new season of Doctor Who will premiere in spring 2017 alongside the new spinoff series, Class.
