Doctor Who Seven-Day Marathon Leads Up to Christmas Special

Peter Capaldi and David Bradley in Twice Upon a Time

Doctor Who Christmas specials are always a major holiday occasion.

Christmas Day will be the first time to see Peter Capaldi's regeneration into Jodie Whittaker, as even early screenings of the special from the BBC will cut out the final few minutes so as not to spoil it for fans or risk the moment leaking.

In short, we pity the editor who had to try and encapsulate all, or even some, of that in the episode's just-released trailer, even if he was able to utilize bigger-on-the-inside Gallifreyan technology.

Everything eventually comes to an end, and BBC America's tradition of airing a "Doctor Who Christmas Special" every year is paired this year with the show's other tradition of changing the actor playing the Doctor every few years. Watch that new trailer, above.

The farewell show will take a look back at Capaldi's time as the Twelfth Doctor with behind the scenes footage and interviews.

Notably absent from the preview photos is the 13th doctor to be played by "Broadchurch's" Jodie Whittaker.

But delightful exchanges between two premiere British actors like Capaldi and Bradley aside, this episode is inherently bittersweet, as it marks the final episode for Capaldi's 12th Doctor. The special episode will star Peter Capaldi as the Doctor, David Bradley as the First Doctor, Pearl Mackie as Bill Potts, and Mark Gatiss as the Captain.

The Doctor Who Christmas special will air at 5.30pm on BBC One on 25 December. It will also highlight the show's writer Steven Moffat as he reflects on his time with DOCTOR WHO, as reported by Deadline. There are also enchanted glass people who steal their victims from frozen time, so you know things will get insane.
