The 2016 Doctor Who Christmas special ‘ The Return of Doctor Mysterio’ is released on DVD and Blu-ray today in the US.

In addition to the hour-long episode, first seen on Christmas Day, this new release features two additions…..

A New Kind of Superhero.

The Doctor has no superpowers, but he can stand proudly alongside the greatest superheroes ever known.  In this special programme we’ll ask what it is about the Doctor that makes him so heroic.

Doctor Who Extra: The Return of Doctor Mysterio

Join stars Peter Capaldi and Matt Lucas, showrunner Steven Moffat, and much more for this very special inside look at the making of ‘The Return of Doctor Mysterio.’


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?

‘The Return of Doctor Mysterio stars Peter Capaldi as The Doctor, alongside Matt Lucas as Nardole. Together with a stellar cast including Charity Wakefield, and Justin Chatwin, The Doctor joins forces with a masked Superhero for a fantastic New York adventure.

Also joining the cast is Tomiwa Edun is Mr Brock, Aleksandar Jovanovic plays Dr Sim, and Logan Huffman in an episode written by Steven Moffat. Executive Producer is Brian Minchin. It is produced by Peter Bennett and directed by Ed Bazalgette (Poldark). It was shot in Cardiff at BBC Wales Roath Lock.Studios.


  1. This episode was a nice return for the Doctor after a year of no New Who!I am really looking forward to the brand new series for 2017 and also 2018 if the rumours are true! One thing I would love to see (which might never happen) is a special with all 4 New Who Doctors. Rumour has it that Christopher Eccleston was actually meant to be in the 50th anniversary and as he didn’t take part they wrote in John Hurts Doctor instead.
