The networks previously announced that Doctor Who and Torchwood alum John Barrowman would reprise his role of the immortal soace-traveler Capt. Jack Harkness in the holiday adventure.

He can be seen in Sunday’s minute-long preview, which is now on YouTube.

Other guest stars for the episode include Chris Noth, Harriet Walter and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett.

“We’ve crammed this year’s Doctor Who special with an explosion of extraordinary acting talent. Where else would you get British acting royalty, a globally renowned US screen star, an (inter)national treasure of stage and screen and one of Britain’s hottest young actors — just in the guest cast!” executive producer Chris Chibnall said in a statement.

“Put those together with Jodie Whittaker, Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill and Tosin Cole (and Daleks! Did I mention Daleks!) — and you get a cast to be exterminated for. And things will explode. Promise.”
