Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who’s Day roundup, a lightning trip down the time vortex to revist the past seven days in Whovian social media fandom, news and general excitement.
And of course, the closer we get to Christmas Day, the more fan excitement there is around “Twice Upon a Time,” this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special, which is a thematically apt thirteen days away.
There’s a new trailer:
And some intriguing pics:
As well as these amazing fan art salutes to Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor:
#DoctorWho Series 8, Series 9, Series 10.
A tribute to the glorious and magnificent Twelfth Doctor. And to Peter Capaldi, the artist, the wonderful man who has brought him to life, not only on screen.

Thought I was overdue another bout of #DoctorWho photo sprucing-up, so here's a shiny new version of this gorgeous shot from Marco Polo. Used 5 pretty ropey copies and a lot of manual labour to get it back to its former glory. Well worth it I reckon 👍 pic.twitter.com/tQUcsTjm5L
