BBC One has released a trailer for its Doctor Who Christmas Special 2016, dubbed The Return of Doctor Mysterio. This year, the Doctor will join forces with a masked superhero for an epic New York adventure.

With brain-swapping aliens poised to attack, the Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, and Nardole, played by Matt Lucas, link up with an investigative reporter and a mysterious figure known only as The Ghost. Can the Doctor save Manhattan and what will be revealed behind the mask?

The 60-minute special, which was shot in Cardiff, Wales, will air on Christmas Day in the UK at 5.45pm GMT. It’s written by Steven Moffat, exec produced by Brian Minchin and produced by Peter Bennett. Poldark’s Ed Bazalgette directs. Justin Chatwin, Charity Wakefield, Tomiwa Edun, Aleksandar Jovanovic and Logan Huffman also star.
