Warlord have announced their next Doctor Who release based on characters from the upcoming BBC 2016 Christmas special, The Return Of Doctor Mysterio…
The first new episode in twelve months sees The Doctor and the previously decapitated Nardole (Matt Lucas taking on the companion role, now thankfully with his head reattached) arrive in present day New York. They team up with reporter Lucy Fletcher and the mysterious superhero The Ghost to fight aliens with a fondness for brain-swapping.
These two beautifully sculpted pewter figures feature The Ghost as portrayed by Justin Chatwin, and Dr Sim, played by Aleksandar Jovanovic.
- Matt Lucas was originally intended to feature only in The Husbands of River Song, but later emailed show runner Steven Moffat to ask if there was any way for him to return. He will now feature in around half of the 2017 series.
- Although set in New York City, the bulk of this episode was filmed in Cardiff.
- The episode title is a playful nod to the Mexican translated title for the series, made famous by striking book covers in the 1970s.
- Watch: Christmas Day 5:45pm BBC One
