Christmas is still a few weeks away, but Doctor Who would never sully your right to sneak an early peek. Celebrate the holidays in November with a first look at 2016 Doctor Who Christmas Special “The Return of Doctor Mysterio,” featuring a very super Justin Chatwin.

BBC America released a first look at the highly-anticipated Christmas Special as part of BBC One’s telethon for Children in Need, offering our first look at the superhero-style adventure. In it, Justin Chatwin’s heroic figure makes a dramatic entrance to rescue the Doctor, as outlined in the full synopsis:

The Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, teams up with an investigative journalist, played by Charity Wakefield (Wolf Hall, The Player) and a superhero to save New York from a deadly alien threat. Matt Lucas (Bridesmaids, Little Britain) returns to the series as Nardole and Justin Chatwin (Orphan Black, Shameless) joins the cast in a guest starring role as Grant.

Also worth noting is that Fathom Events will bring Doctor Who: The Return of Doctor Mysterio to select nationwide cinemas on December 27 and 29, along with their own special features:

The event will include the full 60-minute special plus two exclusive bonus features, A New Kind of Superhero, giving a special inside look at Doctor Who’s concept of a modern superhero, and a special Christmas Doctor Who Extra, showing the making of this year’s special, with appearances by stars Peter Capaldi and Matt Lucas, and showrunner and executive producer Steven Moffat.
