NEW YORK, Oct. 9 (UPI) — The BBC has released a brief clip offering a behind-the-scenes look at the 2016 Doctor Who Christmas special.
The action-packed video, which runs for more than a minute, went viral on social media over the weekend.
“This Christmas the Doctor will be back in ‘The Return of Doctor Mysterio’! #NYCC2016,” said a message accompanying the featurette on Facebook.
The holiday program will star series regular Peter Capaldi as the titular time traveler. The video clip shows Capaldi working with a green screen before special effects are digitally added.
Justin Chatwin is seen as the superhero Doctor Mysterio in the New York-set episode, which will also feature appearances by Charity Wakefield and Matt Lucas.
Capaldi and show-runner Steven Moffat were at New York Comic Con Friday to promote the upcoming season of their sci-fi series.
