Happy holidays, Whovians! Here’s a festive treat for you: a new trailer for the action-packed Doctor Who Christmas Special: The Return of Doctor Mysterio is finally here.

For this year’s special The Doctor is taking the TARDIS to New York City where there’s a masked vigilante (“but he’s super!”) and brain-swapping aliens to contend with — all in a day’s work for the good doc. Plus, Matt Lucas is back as The Doctor’s down-to-earth companion, Nardole.

In the promo, The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) confronts a new superhero, The Ghost, played by Justin Chatwin, and befriends an investigative journalist (Charity Wakefield) with whom The Ghost seems to have a romantic connection. Then he just has to figure out what’s going on with some alien-types who are trying to take over the city — no big deal.

The special airs on Christmas Day on BBC America at 9 p.m. ET. The network will have a Doctor Who marathon in the days leading up to the premiere. The new season of Doctor Who will premiere alongside spin-off Class in spring 2017.

Watch the trailer above.
