Watch the trailer for the Doctor Who Christmas special ‘Twice Upon a Time’ and learn about the farewell special
The BBC has posted a brand new trailer for the Doctor Who Christmas special “Twice Upon a Time.” This comes with the announcement of a farewell special for star Peter Capaldi, according to Deadline. Those of us heartbroken by Peter Capaldi’s exit (he’s my favorite Doctor), are sad to see him go, but thrilled that there will be an official goodbye.
The special, narrated by Colin McFarlane (The Dark Knight, Doctor Who), will reportedly show archive footage and interviews from Capaldi’s tenure as the Twelfth Doctor. Showrunner Steven Moffat will also discuss his time writing and executive producing for the series.
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. ‘Twice Upon A Time’ premieres Christmas Night at 9/8c on BBC America.
As fans know, the Christmas special at the end of a Doctor’s tenure will feature the regeneration to a new form. This time around, it will be the first woman to play the role, Jodie Whittaker. In addition, beginning Tuesday, December 19, BBC America will air a seven-day, 24-hour marathon of Doctor Who episodes with David Tennant, Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi.
Twice Upon a Time premieres Sunday, December 25 at 9/8c on BBC America. Doctor Who: Farewell to Peter Capaldi follows immediately after. Are you guys excited about the Christmas special “Twice Upon a Time?” Let us know in the comments and leave your love for Capaldi there as well. Sniff.
