Doctor Who: Peter Capaldi's 12 Best Performances As The Twelfth Doctor

"Twice Upon A Time" - to use the episode's full title - was a fitting reminder of why Capaldi's Doctor is one of the best as he swerved between dark-yet-humourous comments, contemplating the past and learning a final, vital lesson from Bill Potts.

The Doctor Who Christmas special said goodbye to Peter Capaldi's protagonist and hello to Jodie Whittaker's on Monday evening (watch above). Oscar-winner Peter Capaldi is now playing the part of the Twelfth Doctor. Whittaker has also appeared in the likes of Attack the Block and Black Mirror.

The new batch of "Doctor Who" adventures with Whittaker is expected to bow by the end of 2018.

This is another unusual move for the show as the Doctor tends to regenerate with an audience (his companions), but Whittaker's new Doctor will find herself alone in the TARDIS console room. Many latched on to the Thirteenth Doctor's first words, "Oh, brilliant!"

They are two different things. "Of course, it depends on many factors, but we open the door for what I call the December injuries".

In that sense, "Twice Upon a Time" is primarily interested in the question of why the Doctor would solider on, and, by positioning him against a much older version of himself, all while the promise of an historic regeneration into a female incarnation waits in the background, pointing out just how much the character has changed.

The actress embarked on her Doctor Who journey with a bang as she fell from the Tardis moments after transforming into the Time Lord.

Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall is taking over Doctor Who showrunning duties from Steven Moffat on the BBC One and BBC America sci-fi series. 1965's appropriately-titled The Feast of Steven (part of a twelve-part serial, The Daleks' Master Plan) was set on December 25 and, in a moment of festive frivolity, William Hartnell's Doctor turned to the camera and announced, "Incidentally, a Happy Christmas to all of you at home!"

Whether or not Whittaker does is yet to be seen.
