Peter Capaldi's Doctor will make his final appearance this festive season.
'Doctor Who' has for many years entertained sci-fi fans and pushed the boundaries of the genre like never before. This year it'll be returning for a Christmas special, as has become tradition, as the baton passes from one version of the Doctor to another. Directed and written by Rachel Talalay alongside outgoing series showrunner Steven Moffat, the final episode of the year will serve to tie up the Doctor's story as far as Peter Capaldi's version of the character goes, with Jodie Whittaker finally being properly introduced as the latest Doctor.

As the first female-bodied version of the Doctor, Whittaker has already faced a plethora of differing reactions following the casting announcement. The majority of fans however are excited to see exactly what she can bring to the role.

The former 'Corrie' star will appear alongside Jodie Whittaker.
The first official male 'Doctor Who' companion has finally been revealed, with reports revealing that British actor and presenter Bradley Walsh will be joining Jodie Whittaker in the future series of the sci-fi show. Now that is certainly something we never saw coming.
Bradley Walsh wins an NTA
With the first female Doctor comes the first long-term male companion in the shape of 57-year-old 'The Chase' presenter Bradley Walsh. It won't be his first stint in the franchise either, having previously appeared a 2008 double-episode of 'The Sarah Jane Adventures' as Elijah Spellman aka The Pied Piper aka Odd Bob the Clown.

She apologises for all the speculation that her co-star got earlier this year.
Jodie Whittaker is glad that she can finally reach out to Phoebe Waller-Bridge and apologise for all the 'Doctor Who' rumours she had to deal with in the run-up to the announcement of the thirteenth Doctor. Jodie was so under scrutiny that she couldn't so much as text her friend.
Jodie Whittaker snapped outside the ITV studios
The BBC always like to keep the identity of the next Doctor super secret until the right moment, which put a lot of pressure on Jodie Whittaker when she was told she was to take over from Peter Capaldi. She opened up about her big secret to Dermot O'Leary on BBC Radio 2 and apologised to her 'Broadchurch' co-star.
Tennant, who played Doctor Who for five years until 2010, was asked about Whittaker's appointment by US chat show host Stephen Colbert.
Amid the backlash from some quarters against the casting of a female Doctor Who, the BBC sci-fi show’s former star David Tennant has backed the newly announced Jodie Whittaker, saying that her gender will be “irrelevant almost immediately” when she makes her debut.
The 46 year old actor, who played the Time Lord between 2005 and 2010, chatted with American talk show host Stephen Colbert on ‘The Late Show’ on Thursday (August 10th). He said that although Whittaker’s appointment was the first time a woman has played the Doctor, the character has never been of any fixed gender, so a male actor is as relevant to the part as a female one.
“Whenever the Doctor changes, there’s a backlash,” Tennant explained. “Sure, Jodie is from a different gender – but that will be irrelevant almost immediately when she takes the part. It’s about finding the right performer at the right time, and that’s Jodie without a doubt.”
Jodie Whittaker's incarnation of the Doctor could called for 'girl on girl'.
With the new Doctor Who becoming a woman for the first time, there are rumours that there may be some sexual fluidity for the first time too. It certainly makes sense; while the Timelord's biological make-up changes with each regeneration, the memories of lost loves always stays the same.

We know that the Timelord civilisation is far more advanced than mankind; as the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) mentioned in 'World Enough and Time' when he blasted gender stereotypes; so there's no reason why the Doctor can't be totally bisexual too. Michelle Gomez, who plays Missy (formerly the Master), hinted at as much recently when talking about the arrival of Jodie Whittaker.

We just can't wait until winter for 'Twice Upon A Time'.
The trailer for the forthcoming 'Doctor Who' Christmas special has arrived, and it's times like this that make us yearn for December. We already know that we'll get to meet Jodie Whittaker for the first time, but what final adventure is in store for Peter Capaldi's Doctor?
Continuing on from season 10 episode 12, 'The Doctor Falls', we see the Doctor on an adventure with the first ever incarnation of himself in 'Twice Upon A Time'. Obviously, William Hartnell is no longer around to be in any more series, but David Bradley has turned out to be quite a convincing replacement.

Kris Marshall may have missed out on the main role, but he could yet feature as Jodie Whittaker's assistant.
Having been pipped to the post of the role as the next ‘Doctor Who’ by Jodie Whittaker when the BBC made its big reveal last weekend, Kris Marshall could reportedly yet land a place in the Tardis as the next Doctor’s assistant.
The 44 year old English actor had been the bookies’ favourite to be named as Peter Capaldi’s successor after he steps down after the upcoming Christmas special. However, the BBC confirmed on Sunday that the 13th Doctor would be 35 year old Whittaker, one of the stars of ‘Broadchurch’, who would be the first woman to play the Time Lord.
However, despite his disappointment at missing out on the title role, new reports suggest that former ‘Death In Paradise’ and ‘My Family’ star Marshall could be in line to be the new Doctor’s companion.
Monday's 'Newsnight' appeared to suggest Phoebe Waller-Bridge would be Peter Capaldi's successor - but the actress's agents quickly squashed it.
The BBC may have just dropped a significant hint as to who Peter Capaldi’s successor as the Timelord will be on ‘Doctor Who’.
At the end of Monday night’s (July 3rd) episode of ‘Newsnight’, presenter Evan Davis suggested that ‘Fleabag’ actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge would be the next Doctor on the long-running BBC sci-fi series.
“If you watched ‘Doctor Who’ on Saturday there were some pretty heavy hints that the next Doctor might be a woman,” Davis said to camera. “Well the bookies’ favourite Phoebe Waller-Bridge has denied claims that she’s going to be the first female Doctor… But then Joanna Lumley has already played the role for Comic Relief, so that would technically be true.”
Clara Oswald may have one last goodbye for the Twelfth Doctor.
The forthcoming Christmas special of 'Doctor Who' is set to be quite the ride for viewers, as not only will we get our first glimpse of the eagerly anticipated Thirteenth Doctor, but will also get to see one final appearance from one of the Doctor's previous companions.

There are all sorts of rumours flying about regarding the actor or actress who will embody the next incarnation of the Doctor, but to add more excitement to the mix, we'll get to greet good old Jenna Coleman once again as Clara Oswald who we thought had made her last appearance in series nine.

Episode 3 sees 'Doctor Who' challenge ideas about race in honour of Bill.
The third episode of 'Doctor Who' series 10 is coming this weekend, and with it some very serious themes regarding race and the 'whitewashing' of history. Previous episodes have already touched on LGBT issues and the dangers of technological advancements, but this could be the most important episode yet.
With the Doctor's (Peter Capaldi) latest companion being the mixed-race Bill (Pearl Mackie), she's raised some questions about how her race might affect how people treat her when they go back in time in the TARDIS in the next episode 'Thin Ice'. Of course, the Doctor's seen more race wars in the history of the universe than anyone, so we're sure he'll have some insightful comments to make on this subject.
