The BBC Plans To Distribute The Doctor Who 2016 Christmas Special In Theaters
Entitled “The Return of Doctor Mysterio”, the special is slated to see theatrical release on December 26th and 27th. This means that American Whovians will have a chance to see this very special episode of the science fiction series just a day after their British counterparts see it on their television screens:
The Doctor Who 2016 Christmas Special event will include the full 60-minute episode plus two exclusive bonus features, “A New Kind of Superhero,” which offers a special inside look at Doctor Who’s concept of a modern superhero, and a special “Christmas Doctor Who Extra,” which shows off the making of this year’s special, with appearances by stars Peter Capaldi and Matt Lucas as well as showrunner and executive producer Steven Moffat.
Join the Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, as he teams up with an investigative journalist, played by Charity Wakefield (Wolf Hall, The Player), and a superhero to save New York from a deadly alien threat. Written by Steven Moffat, the Doctor Who 2016 special stars Justin Chatwin (Orphan Black, Shameless) as Grant, along with Matt Lucas (Alice in Wonderland, Bridesmaids), Adetomiwa Edun (Lucifer, Bates Motel), Aleksandar Jovanovic and Logan Hoffman.
