Thanks to a new effect for the Facebook Camera Effects Platform, giving users across the globe the ability to undergo the regeneration process for the first time using Augmented Reality.
Users can access the effect, created by VFX studio The Mill, through the Facebook app’s camera feature beginning December 18, 2017, just days before the historic on-screen metamorphosis of Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi into Thirteenth Doctor Jodie Whittaker during the 2017 Christmas Special, Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time.
Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time premieres on BBC AMERICA in the U.S. and Space in Canada on December 25, and will be available in theaters nationwide for one night only on December 27, 2017 through a partnership with Fathom Events.
While the BBC was making history by naming the first female Doctor, the current showrunner was heading a trip to San Diego Comic-Con 2017 – where he presented the first teaser for the 2017 Doctor Who Christmas Special, Twice Upon a Time.
The teaser reunites the Doctor with Bill Potts and features a unique event with the first and twelfth Doctors teaming up.
Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time will premiere on December 25th, of course.
Jodie Whittaker is the new Doctor as new Doctor Who showrunner Chris Chibnall follows former showrunner Steven Moffat’s introduction of a female Master with an even bigger genderbender – and it’s about time (I hear many of you say)!
Whittaker might be best known on this side of the pond for her roles in Broadchurch and the Emmy Award-winning Black Mirror.
Check out mysterious introduction video; reactions from relevant Whovians and a brief interview with Whittaker.
The fifth episode of Doctor Who: Season 10 finds The Doctor and Bill on a space station that seems to want to rid itself of oxygen and spacesuits that want to kill their wearers – which might be why the episode is called Oxygen.
Doctor Who airs on Saturdays (9/8C) on BBC America.
