You've definitely seen it?









The end of the finale saw the regenerating Twelth Doctor encountering his original incarnation. After his magnificent performance as William Hartnell in An Adventure In Time And Space, David Bradley is bringing back the First Doctor for a 'two Doctors' Christmas special which will also be Peter Capaldi's last.

And here are the first details, which admittedly, don't reveal much more than we learned in the finale...

The closing moments of this evening’s Doctor Who series ten finale revealed that this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special will be a multi-Doctor adventure featuring the current Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and the First Doctor (David Bradley).

The cliff-hanger ending saw the Doctor fatally shot by a Mondasian Cyberman and begin to regenerate. Stepping out of the TARDIS into an arctic landscape, he fought off the glowing regeneration energy and fell to his knees, vowing that this time he would not live on and change into a new Doctor. This was declared “ridiculous” by an approaching figure, who mocked the Doctor as he stepped forward through the snow to reveal himself as the very first incarnation of the Timelord ("The original, you might say") just before the credits rolled. The story will continue at Christmas.
