And what better way to celebrate than with the return of an enigmatic, eccentric white haired fellow who seems to be able to bend time and space? Santa? No, silly, it's old Doctor Mysterio himself AKA Peter Capaldi AKA Doctor Who AKA The Doctor!
After a year (or twenty-four) away, Doctor Mysterio is back on our screens with the coincidentally annual Christmas Special. But something is amiss, as this Christmas Special seems to have a distinct lack of tinsel, snow and other festive shit and a definite abundance of latex, x-ray vision and other superhero shit. We seem to be taking a different approach to this year's festive adventure, but how will Who's flirtation with the superhero genre go down? Will it slide down smooth, like a fine Christmas pudding covered in Brandy Sauce? Or will it go down all jagged and cutting, like a glass Christmas star not covered in Brandy Sauce?
There's only one way to be sure - so grab your baby monitor, swallow your gem and take to the skies!
