The Return of Doctor Mysterio 5.45pm Christmas Day

This Christmas sees The Doctor join forces with a masked Superhero for an epic New York adventure.

With brain-swapping aliens poised to attack, the Doctor and Nardole link up with an investigative reporter and a mysterious figure known only as The Ghost.

Can the Doctor save Manhattan? And what will be revealed when we see behind the mask?

    The foes look similar to those seen in the hospital in ‘The Power of Three’.

    Opinions are opinions, but when I want to watch Doctor Who I usually get a DVD from the shelf, I quite liked Series 8 and the first half of Series 9, but the second half of the latter disappointed me. I know I should watch it really but from the trailers I’ve seen it doesn’t look that great.

    By the way I don’t mean the trailer above, I mean the episode trailer with footage from it.

    After watching that trailer I now know that this episode will be Christmassy. Watching the clip made me think is this just a Christmas special but with no Christmas in it but the trailer shows the Christmas stuff in it so that’s good.

    I am still going to watch it, but after seeing the trailer, it just doesnt scream doctor who….. its more like a trailer for an american series, like a pilot episode.

    I dont see the poing of having the female character, let alone Nardole, i feel it could have introduced Bill into the series.

    I did like Husbands of River Song last year, but this, i dont know. Like i say, it just isnt saying Doctor Who Christmas special to me.

    On the plus side, at least it looks a lot better than the abismal Doctor, Widow and the Wardrobe though.

    Apparently The Doctor accidentally gives him super-powers. Perhaps he’s experimenting on the top of someone’s house (based on a promo) and it accidentally malfunctions and gives the super-hero (Grant Gordon, or, ‘The Ghost’) powers.

    Moffat teases about the villains “theyve been around before, and quite recently. And there’s a sinister plan afoot to conquer earth.” In the radio times. I’ve seen a lot of people with scars on their faces in the trailers. Maybe it’s the race from husband’s of river song with scars on their faces.
