The Doctor Who Christmas special is always a big-budget TV event and for the past two actors who have played the time-traveling alien, it has been when they have bid goodbye to the long-running TV show.
Peter Capaldi will uphold that tradition and say goodbye to the role of the Doctor in this year’s Christmas special, Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time. But as he faces a future ahead of Doctor Who, he will run smack dab into the past. This is a time travel show after all, and you can’t have big event TV without inviting David Bradley to play the beloved crotchety First Doctor. And let me tell you, he does not dig those sonic sunglasses.
