Doctor Who Christmas special 2023: release date, trailer, cast, plot, and more

Doctor Who at Christmas. Cosying up in front of a warm fire after a long day of scarfing down turkey, stuffing, and whatnot to see the latest adventure in the TARDIS. It just feels right – and it’s been sorely missed for six long years. 

Finally, though, that barren streak will end with the 15th Doctor’s debut in 2023 Christmas special ‘The Church on Ruby Road’ this holiday season. With Doctor Who‘s 60th anniversary specials officially ending with ‘The Giggle’ on December 9 – a three-part narrative that seems to be bid farewell (albeit a temporary one, in our view) to David Tennant’s Time Lord and Catherine Tate’s Donna Noble once more – it’s time to look ahead to the iconic sci-fi show’s future.
