The BBC’s Media Centre has posted a further synopsis for this year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special – The Return of Doctor Mysterio.

It would seem that the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) accompanied by Matt Lucas’ Nardole and newspaper reporter Lucy Fletcher (Charity Wakefield) will join forces with superhero ‘The Ghost’ or Grant (Justin Chatwin) to protect New York from brain-swapping aliens.

More character names are also confirmed. Tomiwa Edun will play Mr Brock while Aleksandar Jovanovic is Dr Sim.

We already know that this year’s special will air on Christmas Day but we are still waiting on an air time.

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 60-minute special is written by Steven Moffat, Executive Produced by Brian Minchin, Produced by Peter Bennett and Directed by Ed Bazalgette (Poldark). It was shot in Cardiff at BBC Wales Roath Lock.Studios.
