Check out the Doctor Who Series 12 Episode 1 first look featuring Stephen Fry. The episode titled “Spyfall”, the first of a two parter, can be seen January 1st, 2019. The second episode will air the following Sunday, January 5th, 2019.

The clip from the episode, set in ‘present’ day UK, has a body in a hospital bed. Apparently the woman’s body has been DNA modified by a technique not possible on Earth. Here it’s almost like a old brigadier (Stephen Fry) and Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) situation… But of course we know from last session UNIT has been closed down due to budget cuts!

British institution Stephen Fry guest stars. He is know for The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and A Bit of Fry and Laurie. In the UK he compared the quiz show QI for many years.

Despite the many criticisms of last season this short clip looks ok. However given how many stories turned out don’t get your hopes up!
