The Doctor Who Christmas special trailer has us on the edge of our seats already

It’s nearly here!

The trailer for the Doctor Who Christmas special has been released and it looks awesome!

Check it out…

The episode, called The Return Of Doctor Mysterio and inspired by the programme’s Mexico branch, sees a return of the character Nardole – played by Matt Lucas – who was decapitated in last year’s Christmas episode.

In the clip, we see Peter Capaldi’s sushi-munching Doctor meet an American journalist before the group run into a sharply dressed villain (we assume, from the dry tone and gun-wielding).

The plot thickens seconds later as “masked vigilante” The Ghost appears flying like a superhero outside the skyscraper window in his apparently bullet-proof outfit.

What’s going to happen next? Find out when the full episode airs at 5.45pm on Christmas Day, on BBC One.
