You neophytes may not know it, but the TARDIS is a pretty big deal in the world of “ Doctor Who .” The device — whose name may or may not be an acronym — has long been used by Doctors to travel through time, probably, and will next be occupied by the 13th Doctor. Before Jodie Whittaker takes residence in that iconic vessel, however, the folks at BBC are treating fans to a preview in which the First Doctor comes upon the Twelfth Doctor’s TARDIS.

The scene comes from “Twice Upon a Time,” this year’s Christmas Special, and stars Peter Capaldi as the current Doctor, David Bradley (also familiar for playing Filch in the “Harry Potter” movies and Walder Frey on “Game of Thrones”) as the First Doctor, Pearl Mackie as Bill Potts, and Mark Gatiss as the Captain. The crossed timelines naturally leads to some confusion: “Look at my TARDIS!” the First Doctor exclaims. “Have I been burgled?”

The current Doctor, meanwhile, does his best to apprise their guest of the situation: “You’re an officer from World War I at the South Pole being pursued by an alien through frozen time. Madness was never this good.” Watch the full scene below.

A number of other actors have played the character in stage and audio plays, as well as in various film and television productions. The Doctor has been well received by the public, with an enduring popularity leading The Daily Telegraph to dub the character "Britain's favourite alien". [1] The Doctor has also been featured in films and a vast range of spin-off novels, audio dramas and comic strips.

On 30 January 2017, Peter Capaldi confirmed that the tenth series would be his last portraying the Twelfth Doctor . [2] Jodie Whittaker made her first appearance as the Thirteenth Doctor at the end of the 2017 Christmas special " Twice Upon a Time ".

"Doctor" is a self-selected alias. In later episodes of the revived programme, specifically under show runner Steven Moffat , the story arcs surrounding events in the Doctor's future implied serious consequences in the event of the Doctor's true name being spoken, the nature of these finally being revealed in " The Time of the Doctor ". Spin-off media offer the explanation that the Doctor's true name is unpronounceable by humans. In "The Name of the Doctor", the Eleventh Doctor tells companion Clara Oswald that the name "Doctor" is essentially a promise he made. The promise itself is revealed in " The Day of the Doctor ": "Never cruel nor cowardly. Never give up. Never give in."
