So this is a biggie!
If you don’t want any spoilers about the new series of Doctor Who, then please look away now.
Right, we all know that Peter Capaldi is leaving the Tardis at the end of this season, along with showrunner Steven Moffat, and there are strong rumours gathering today of how he could be leaving!
The first time we saw Capaldi as The Doctor was a brief cameo in the 50th anniversary special and fans have wondered how that will fit into his timeline now he is departing. Well according to reports this morning, that question will be answered in the Christmas Special in which he will also team up with an old friend.
Yes, the rumours are that the 12th Doctor will be re-teaming with the 1st Doctor, as David Bradley will once more portray William Hartnell’s role, which he did in the 2013 drama An Adventure In Time And Space.
The plot details are as follows:
“In the plot, the 1st Doctor has to help the 12th [Peter Capaldi] play out his last mission in the TARDIS. The pair must work together to save [their] home planet Gallifrey by moving it to another dimension”.
Now this all sounds really exciting and something that Moffat would do, but at the moment the BBC have not confirmed or denied the reports.
If this does happen, then The Christmas Special could well be that…..something really special indeed!
