|Justin Chatwin as Doctor Mysterio|
This Christmas, Peter Capaldi's Doctor will be teaming up with a superhero called Doctor Mysterio to save New York from an alien threat in The Return of Doctor Mysterio.
The 60-minute Doctor Who episode is penned by showrunner Steven Moffat (so will probably be unnecessarily complicated and obtuse) and broadcast on BBC One on Christmas Day.
|The Second Doctor And The Karkus|
Back in the Second Doctor's era, during one of my favourite stories, The Mind Robber, he encountered the Karkus (Christopher Robbie), a comic book character from Zoe’s era, in The Land Of Fiction.
The TARDIS Data Core wiki tells us that The Karkus has popped up in a handful of subsequent books and audio adventures.
Role-playing statistics for The Karkus, for use in The Doctor Who Roleplaying Game from Cubicle 7, can be found on page 133 of The Second Doctor Sourcebook, should you wish to blend comic book superheroics with your Doctor Who campaign.
