That’s right festive friends, the latest Christmas chat is all about Doctor Who making a 2023 Christmas Day episode in 2023.

Although it has been speculated nothing has yet been confirmed, according to TV Zone there have been internal talks about the show returning to its coveted slot.

As the BBC sci-fi series goes under a re-vamp and sees the arrival of the fourteenth doctor (Ncuti Gatwa) arriving later this year could this be the start of the beloved Christmas Day specials on our screen – we really, really hope so.
