More exciting news from New York Comic Con 2016…

Today we got two teasers that are pretty great.

First up is the Christmas special, titled The Return of Doctor Mysterio. The New York-set episode involves the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) running into a superhero played by Justin Chatwin who you can see below in all his Nightwing-lite dark goodness.

Yes, superheroes are now a part of the Doctor Who Universe. How awesome is that?

Next we got a teaser for the Doctor Who Spin-off, Class and it looks great too… and certainly seems to say that The Doctor himself will appear from time to time.

Class first look:

Here’s a synopsis of the first two episodes of Class which will be available on BBC Three Saturday 22 October:

S01E01. For Tonight We Might Die
It’s a new term at Coal Hill Academy, and students are preparing for their Autumn Prom. But when the school comes under attack from the monstrous Shadow Kin, four alienated students must form an unlikely alliance to defeat them.

Charlie, April, Ram and Tanya, assisted by their physics teacher Miss Quill, are now charged with a great responsibility by the mysterious alien known as ‘The Doctor’: to guard against the creatures of nightmare, who want nothing more than to find a way through to Earth and take it for their own.

And this incursion is only the beginning…

S01E02. The Coach With The Dragon Tattoo
Following the tragic events at the Prom, a devastated Ram isolates himself from the other three as he struggles with his new reality. Desperate to hold himself together on the football pitch, when he thinks he witnesses someone getting skinned alive he’s convinced he’s cracking up.

But when Tanya, Charlie and April are all confronted with the same thing: a horrific, monstrous, skin-peeling dragon, they know that they’re under attack. The gang must pull together to fight against the monster, and try to keep Coal Hill safe.

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….
