For the first time, the 2015 Doctor Who Christmas special, which will premiere Christmas Day on BBC America, will also hit U.S. cinemas, with BBC Worldwide North America and Fathom Events announcing a two-night special theatrical event on Dec. 28 and 29. at 7:30 pm local time, and it will feature an exclusive interview with Alex Kingston, who will reprise her role as River Song for the special, and a 15-minute behind-the-scenes "making of" featurette starring Peter Capaldi, Steven Moffat, and more.
The special stars Peter Capaldi as the Doctor, and Alex Kingston returning as River Song, the Doctor's wife. Check out the trailer here:
It's Christmas Day in the future and the TARDIS is parked on a snowy village street, covered in icicles, awaiting its next adventure. Time traveler River Song meets her husband's new incarnation, in the form of Peter Capaldi, for the first time this Christmas.
Doctor Who airs at The BBC America on Saturdays at 9 pm Eastern Time.
