The BBC Store in America looks like it’s – temporarily at least – revealed the first official story details from this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special, Twice Upon A Time.
We already knew, of course, that the episode would see Peter Capaldi’s exit from the TARDIS and Jodie Whittaker becoming the next Doctor. Furthermore, Mark Gatiss and David Bradley have long been confirmed for the cast.
However, the BBC Store uploaded a synopsis for the DVD release of the episode, that’s since been taken down. But Girly Letters on Twitter quickly picked it up.
It reads as follows…
Two Doctors stranded in a forbidding snowscape, refusing to face regeneration. And a British army captain seemingly destined to die in the First World War, but taken from the trenches to play his part in the Doctor’s story. This is the magical last chapter in the Twelfth Doctor’s epic adventure. He must face his past to decide his future. And the Doctor will realise the resilience of humanity, discovering hope in his darkest frozen moment. It’s the end of an era. But the Doctor’s journey is only just beginning.
The link at the BBC Store – although you won’t find the synopsis there anymore – is right here.
