At New York Comic-Con today BBC America revealed the first look at this year’s Doctor Who Christmas Special, which will air on Christmas Day. It’s not a trailer exactly, but more of a behind-the-scenes video that also shows off scenes from the episode. It appears to take place in New York and involve the time and space traveling hero The Doctor (played by Peter Capaldi) encountering a full-fledged superhero (something the show hasn’t really tackled before). No doubt there will be some sort of twist to the superhero aspect. The episode is entitled “The Return of Doctor Mysterio” and Justin Chatwin (Orphan Black, War of the Worlds) plays the masked hero.

The BBC has also shared the first teaser trailer and first full trailer for the new Doctor Who spinoff Class. It takes place at Coal Hill School, a location that dates back to the very first episode of Doctor Who back in 1963 and where recent companion Clara Oswald was a teacher. The project comes from acclaimed Young Adult writer Patrick Ness and is executive produced by Ness, Doctor Who show-runner Steven Moffat, and Brian Minchin. The first two episodes will debut in the U.K. on BBC Three on October 22 and Peter Capaldi’s Doctor will guest in the first episode. Alas, BBC America have made the potentially ill-advised decision to not air Class until 2017. Diehard American Doctor Who fans may not wait until next year to watch it. But no doubt the network has their reasons and will perhaps pair it with Doctor Who when its new full season returns next year.
