Today at NYCC it was revealed the first glimpse of what to expect from this year Doctor Who Christmas Special. There won’t be a companion, as Pearl Mackie’s debut it will happen only in the first episode of series 10. But Matt Lucas will be back with his Nardole, playing what is said an ‘anti-companion‘. The character was introduced last Christmas, at “The Husbands of River Song” as one of Prof. Song’s clumsy assistants. I’m expecting lots of fun with the interactions between Nardole and the Twelfth Doctor and we will see them together not only at Christmas, but also in the firsts episodes of series 10.
As for this year’s Christmas Special, it will be a very super hero one, with the Canadian actor Justin Chatwin (Shameless, Dragon Ball Evolution) playing the part.Take a look at the first images of the new Doctor Who adventure with Peter Capaldi and “The Return of Doctor Mysterio“.
