Brand New Poster and BBC America Time-Slot Confirmed For The Return of Doctor Mysterio

The BBC have released this rather smashing poster for this year’s Christmas special, The Return of Doctor Mysterio – Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s The Ghost!

And, if you prefer your posters to move – you know, like posters don’t – here’s a motion poster of The Ghost’s smashing entrance! What’s more, the video also confirms the time-slot in the US for the Christmas Special as Christmas Day at 9/8 C.

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?

Peter Capaldi stars as the Doctor, Matt Lucas (Little Britain) as Nardole, Justin Chatwin (Orphan Black) as Grant and Charity Wakefield (Wolf Hall) as an investigative journalist.

The special is written by Steven Moffat, executive produced by Brian Minchin, produced by Peter Bennett and directed by Ed Bazalgette (Poldark).

Doctor Who – The Return of Doctor Mysterio airs Christmas Day at 17:45 on BBC One and 9/8 C on BBC America.
