SDCC 2017: Footage from the Doctor Who Christmas Special coming on Sunday

July 22nd, 2017 by Marc Comments

It’s been a heck of a week for Doctor Who fans with the announcement of new Doctor Jodie Whittaker dividing fans and non-fans alike.

Today from SDCC we get news that we’ll get a glimpse of The Christmas Special on Sunday.

Will it feature Peter Capaldi’s Doctor or perhaps David Bradley as the first Doctor to perhaps Whittaker herself? Who knows?

At least one thing we do know… the trailer won’t just be an SDCC affair as it will also appear online shortly afterward.

This has been confirmed by Rachel Talalay, the director of the episode and the show’s previous two episodes as well.

It’s likely the footage will feature the twelfth and first Doctors rather than the thirteenth, but we remain hopeful either way.

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….
