'Doctor Who': The Internet Reacts to the Thirteenth Doctor's Debut

Posted December 30, 2017

Coleman's surprise appearance came as Jodie Whittaker made her debut.

With the first ever female Doctor incoming, plenty of fresh eyes will have been on the Christmas special, but longtime fans weren't forgotten. Whittaker has also appeared in the likes of Attack the Block and Black Mirror.

But this bunch of comedians were hounded by a whole load of Doctor Who fans who had no time for the sexist jokes this Christmas.

But how will Whittaker be introduced to the world as the Thirteenth Doctor?

As time goes by, appreciation for Capaldi's Twelfth Doctor will grow, which these truly outstanding performances will prove why.

To pull this off, Moffat positions Capaldi's Doctor and David Bradley's First Doctor in the South Pole, where, not coincidentally, they're both attempting to stave off regeneration. There's not too much in the way of spoilers for the rest of Capaldi's last episode here - Whittaker's casting has been known for months - but if you're really concerned about having anything spoiled for you, it's probably best to watch the special first.

When is Doctor Who Christmas Special 2017 on TV? Perhaps new showrunner Chris Chibnall will take the more traditional route and leave us all waiting until the Fall to hear her first words?

Peter Capaldi is not expected to attempt this during the forthcoming episode, Twice Upon A Time.

In its first twenty-six years, only one episode of Doctor Who fell on Christmas Day.
