A first look at Doctor Who’s Spring Special has revealed the long awaited return of the Sea Devils, a classic monster first seen with the third Doctor Jon Pertwee in The Sea Devils (1972).
This episode finds the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker), Yaz (Mandip Gill) and Dan (John Bishop) in 19th century China, where a small coastal village is under threat – from both the fearsome pirate queen Madame Ching (Crystal Yu) and a monstrous alien force which she unwittingly unleashes.
Will the Doctor, Yaz and Dan emerge from this swashbuckling battle with the Sea Devils to save the planet?
The first look trail, which aired after the New Year’s Day Special Eve of the Daleks, also introduced cast members Arthur Lee as Ji-Hun and Marlowe Chan-Reeves as Ying Ki.
Legend of the Sea Devils will air this Spring, with further details to be confirmed in due course. The trailer can be found below.
