BBC Announces 'Doctor Who' Christmas Special

BBC Announces 'Doctor Who' Christmas Special

With series 12 of Doctor Who having drawn to a close, you might be wondering when you'll be able to get your next fix.

Well, BBC has just announced that there *will* be a Christmas special at the end of this year.

We know - it's very early to be talking about Christmas, but it's never too early for good news, right? With series 13 of the show expected to return in autumn 2021, we definitely need something to tide us over in between.

Especially after the cliff hanger of series 12. And the festive episode sounds very dramatic, having already been named, 'Revolution Of The Daleks' who we know are the Doctor's biggest enemy.

Showrunner Chris Chibnall revealed: "We can't leave the Doctor there! On that cliffhanger! Well, we did.

"But rest assured, the Doctor and her friends will be back for a one-off extended special around Christmas and New Year. (I don't know when they're going to put it on yet, otherwise we'd tell you!).

"There will be Daleks. There will be exterminations. Thrills, laughter, tears. You know. The usual. See you at the end of the year."

The last festive special aired on New Year's Day last year, so BBC could certainly follow this format again in 2021. But who will star?

We know for sure that Jodie Whittaker - who plays the Doctor - as well as Tosin Cole (as Ryan), Bradley Walsh (as Graham) and Mandip Gill (as Yaz) will all play a part in the Christmas episode.

"I can't wait for the Doctor to go into battle with the ultimate enemy in this year's Daleks festive special," said Charlotte Moore, director of content at BBC.

And if you are a *major* Doctor Who fan, we have more good news.

Build-A-Bear has just launched a Doctor Who collection featuring two different designs (based on David Tennant and Jodie Whittaker's Doctors) and a variety of accessories.

Prices on the Build-A-Bear website start at £21.50 for the bear alone, which features adorable blue paw pads - one featuring the latest series logo and a TARDIS on the other. It also comes with cute hearts stitched onto its chest and there's the opportunity to add a scent or sound.

It's certainly a good day for Doctor Who fans...
