2017 marks an important year for Doctor Who.
Not only will outgoing Time Lord Peter Capaldi say farewell to the hit sci-fi series, but Jodie Whittaker has been selected as his replacement, which means season 11 of Doctor Who will bring about the first female Doctor at long last. It’s an exciting time for the Who universe, then, and believe it or not, it’s about to get even better.
The upcoming Christmas special is now on the horizon and from what we’ve heard, it’s going to be a big deal, and for more reasons than one. For starters, though, it’s stuffed like a yuletide turkey with tons of things of interest for fans. Capaldi is going to regenerate into Jodie Whittaker, as mentioned above, David Bradley’s First Doctor will be teaming up with the Twelfth, and former companions Pearl Mackie and Jenna Coleman are set to have cameos. But that’s not all, as we’re also going to be getting the chance to catch the special on the big screen.

That’s right, the Doctor Who Christmas Special will be playing in theatres this year for one night only, ensuring that Capaldi gets the sendoff he deserves. You’ll be able to catch it on December 27th at 7pm local time, and should you choose this viewing option, you’ll also get “two exclusive bonus pieces that will take audiences behind the scenes of the holiday special and celebrate the tenures of Capaldi, who has led the series since 2013, and exiting showrunner Steven Moffat.”
