Bill is back in Doctor Who this Christmas



Pearl Mackie, who plays Bill Potts, returns to Doctor Who for Twice Upon A Time. The fan-favourite companion was last seen saving the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) in The Doctor Falls. She'll join two Doctors as David Bradley is the new First Doctor.

The BBC has released a new promotional photo and an official synopsis for Peter Capaldi's regeneration story, which witnesses Jodie Whittaker taking over as the first female Doctor.

"The magical final chapter of the Twelfth Doctor’s (Peter Capaldi) journey sees the Time Lord team up with his former self, the first ever Doctor (David Bradley - Harry Potter, Game of Thrones) and a returning Bill Potts (Pearl Mackie), for one last adventure.

Two Doctors stranded in an Arctic snowscape, refusing to face regeneration. Enchanted glass people, stealing their victims from frozen time. And a World War One captain destined to die on the battlefield, but taken from the trenches to play his part in the Doctor's story.

An uplifting new tale about the power of hope in humanity’s darkest hours, Twice Upon A Time marks the end of an era. But as the Doctor must face his past to decide his future, his journey is only just beginning..."


Rumours persist Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman will return in Steven Moffat's swansong as series showrunner.

Doctor Who: Twice Upon A Time is broadcast on Christmas Day on BBC One. International fans please check local listings.
