Get ready for the new daily show

Oooooh… we may be getting a 2018 Doctor Who Christmas Special after all…

July 8th, 2018 by Marc Comments

So far, with Jodie Whittaker set to play The Doctor in the new series of Doctor Who sometime in the next few months, we have been led to believe that they year would be the first since the show’s return that there would be no Christmas Special episode.

While we expect to have the official release date after the cast appears at SDCC later this year, we are now wondering if we may also have word on a Christmas Special after all.


Well, television editor Edel McDonnell has an official CV online (it’s at the bottom of the page if you want a look) and on there he has listed 2018 Doctor Who Christmas Special and also there he has listed Wayne Yip as the director of the episode; Yip has previously directed Series 10 episodes The Lie of the Land and Empress of Mars, so he’s no stranger to the show as well as having worked on Class, Preacher, Cloak & Dagger, Misfits and Utopia.

So have we now got 11 episodes of Doctor Who this year rather than the expected 10? We certainly hope so…

Ho, ho, ho!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
