Doctor Who: Did Disney Just Confirm The Christmas Episode Air Date And Title?


The last time we had a Christmas Day transmission slot was Steven Moffat’s 2017 episode “Twice Upon a Time”, which was Peter Capaldi’s last episode as the Twelfth Doctor, and featured Jodie Whittaker’s first appearance as the Thirteenth Doctor.

So it certainly feels fitting that the return of the Christmas Day special will also be the first proper episode for Ncuti Gatwa’s Doctor.

The Doctor Who Christmas Special Is Called “The Church On Ruby Road”

The full information in the Disney post reads:

12/25: Doctor Who Holiday Special: The Church on Ruby Road

This short-but-sweet episode title sees to be an obvious reference to the fact that it will be the first time we see the Doctor’s brand-new companion, Ruby Sunday, and perhaps hints at the origins of her name (one theory could be that she was abandoned at this Church as a baby, maybe during a Sunday service…). 

It also explains some earlier set photos captured by fans, which saw Ncuti Gatwa running through a snowy churchyard in Bristol during filming back in February. It feels pretty obvious this will be where he meets Ruby – but which deadly monsters bring him there in the first place remains a mystery for now.
