The First Doctor Returns To Doctor Who For Christmas

In Saturday evening’s Doctor Who series ten finale, it was revealed that the Doctor Who Christmas special will feature the current Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and the First Doctor (David Bradley).

The Doctor was fatally shot by a Mondasian Cyberman and began 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 Time Lord.

The adventure will continue at Christmas when Peter Capaldi leaves the show, and hands over stewardship of the TARDIS to the next Doctor.
