In what was an unlikely event even for the wildly inventive series Doctor Who, the show’s 2016 Christmas Special – Doctor Who – The Return of Doctor Mysterio teamed the Doctor with a superhero to (and here is where the show returned to a reasonably familiar scenario) save the world from an alien threat.
On February 21st, BBC Home Entertainment will release Doctor Who – The Return of Doctor Mysterio on Blu-ray and DVD – with bonus material including a special edition Doctor Who Extra.
