Paul Foden, 44, is a handyman and Doctor Who fan from Stoke-on-Trent. Obsessed with the Time Lord and has previous made models of a Dalek and the robotic dog K9, he has devoted his spare time to building various Doctor Who-related items, such as a battle-scarred Dalek, a Cyberman, K9, and this garden shed, which looks like the TARDIS from the outside, and the inside too.

Handyman Paul spent almost 12 months working on the 12ft (3.6m) tall Tardis which now has pride of place in his back garden. Yesterday (Mon) he said: “I’ve been working on it for nearly a year and I’m just adding the last few details. “I watch Doctor Who and I thought the Tardis would be interesting to build so I decided to have a go.”

2016 Christmas special episode closer look

What did Peter Capaldi, Charity Wakefield and Justin Chatwin think when they first read the script for this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special episode, The Return of Doctor Mysterio?

How hard is it to play two different characters and maintain their separate identities? Listen Justin Chatwin, Peter Capaldi and Steven Moffat telling you all about secret identities.

2016 Christmas special episode: The return of Doctor Mysterio

The only episode (special or not) for the year 2016 was broadcast last night. After River Song’s dead (Clara is only a distant memory, so unclear she is not even mentioned) and an absence of 24 years, the Doctor returns to Earth, and for the first time he has to compete with another type of super-hero for the people’s hearts. Or, with other words, this is how Superman’s story would look like when she is told by a British fellow.

With the Doctor as a secondary character, because his presence is necessary to offer support for the hero and context to his story. Superheroes does not exists on Doctor Who universe (ok, ok, maybe with the exception of this Christmas special episode), but the cartoons with them do exist. To find out how they created this exception you will have to watch the episode.

The 10th series of new Doctor Who will return to British television screens next year. Nardole returned to the Christmas special episode (and his resurrection is interesting) and he is something more the the idiot robot from the previous episode – the character has an unexpected insight, can pilot the TARDIS and will be appearing in several episodes from the new series.

The episode was directed by Ed Bazalgette, the story written by Steven Moffat. Cast: Peter Capaldi (Twelfth Doctor), Matt Lucas (Nardole), Justin Chatwin (Grant Gordon / The Ghost, Charity Wakefield (Lucy Fletcher), Adetomiwa Edun (Mr Brock), Aleksandar Jovanovic (Dr Sim), Logan Hoffman (Young Grant), Daniel Lorente (Teen Grant), Sandra Teles (Reporter), Tanroh Ishida (Operator), Vaughn Johseph (Soldier).
