First Look Video Released For Superhero Themed Doctor Who Christmas Special
Whovians have been waiting an awful long time for everyone's favorite Time Lord to return to the small screen. The last episode to air was last year's Christmas special, "The Husbands of River Song," in which fans were forced to say goodbye, Sweetie, to the daughter of Amy and Rory Pond. After a full year of waiting, the Doctor will finally be back for a brand new superhero themed episode entitled "The Return of Doctor Mysterio."



There's not really anything concrete given away in the video, though there's sure to be a lot for fans to speculate about. Of course, it's well known that Matt Lucas' Nardole will be returning to the show, and from the looks of it, he may be taking part in a nativity scene at some point in the special. Then again, this is Doctor Who, and that outfit could just as well be the uniform of some sort of weird, alien priest as it could be the wardrobe of a wiseman.



However, it is interesting to see that the episode will prominently feature a superhero character played by Justin Chatwin (Shameless, American Gothic). Plot details have been kept tightly locked up, so there's no news on whether or not he's actually more nefarious than he may initially seem. Still, the idea of a costumed superhero being a part of Doctor Who is something fresh and new for the show, and as the Christmas Special's have historically been some of the most tender episodes of the series, fans should probably be prepared to see something with a lot of heart and a lot of surprises come December 25th.
