On December 25th, BBC America will premiere The Doctor Who Christmas Special: Last Christmas (9/7C). If you didn’t already have reason enough to watch after Peter Capaldi totally own the role of the angry-eyebrowed Doctor through season eight, BBC America has twelve reasons – matching the twelve days of Christmas (was that too on the nose?) – that make perfect sense to me.
It’s only been a few weeks and already the debut of the twelfth Doctor is available on home video. While that could be seen as nothing more than a clever marketing ploy, Peter Capaldi’s first adventure in the TARDIS is memorable for a number of reasons (including a limited theatrical release) – enough that the release of Doctor Who: Deep Breath works as a standalone.
