DOCTOR WHO Christmas Special Heading to Cinemas

DOCTOR WHO Christmas Special Heading to Cinemas

We’ve been reeling from a lot of Doctor Who-related things since the finale of Series 10 back in July. From dealing with with the idea of having to say goodbye to Peter Capaldi, to saying “Oh, Bill Potts, we hardly knew ye,” to wrapping our head around a Christmas special which will contain not only the Twelfth Doctor, but also the First Doctor (played by the inimitable David Bradley), AND our first glimpse of Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor. It’s kind of a lot. Well now we’re going to get to take it all in on a massive screen, when the 2017 Doctor Who Christmas special comes to cinemas.

Yet another in the line of cinema screenings brought to us by the BBC and Fathom Events, the screening of “Twice Upon a Time” will be a holiday treat for all, screening on December 27 at 7:00 pm local time. As usual for these things, it’s not merely the episode itself, but also some special featurettes and interviews to give you a full night out. This one will have a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of the special, and a retrospective of both Peter Capaldi’s reign and that of showrunner Steven Moffat, who’s been the lead writer and executive producer since 2010!

As if having two Doctors (really three) wasn’t enough, the episode will have guest appearances by two longtime Doctor Who writers, Mark Gatiss–playing a central role–and Toby Whithouse (the creator of Being Human among other things). Oh, and did we mention Pearl Mackie will also return to say goodbye officially? I wouldn’t be surprised if other favorites showed up too at this rate. I mean, giddy-aunts, it’s gonna be a packed special, and perfect for the snowy season (if you live in that climate).

Tickets for Doctor Who: “Twice Upon a Time” will go on sale on October 20, and can be purchased at this link. Don’t worry, you can sign up for an email reminder as well. Because let’s face it. You’re going to want to share this with as many folks as possible, and big ol’ movie theater seems the perfect place.
