With David Tennant back as the Doctor, the three specials will air in November 2023 before Ncuti Gatwa takes control of the TARDIS over the festive season. The specials also star Catherine Tate, Yasmin Finney and Neil Patrick Harris.

The TARDIS lands in time to celebrate its 60th anniversary, and the trailer exclusively revealed the titles of the three hour-long specials coming later this year:

Special One: The Star Beast

Special Two: Wild Blue Yonder

Special Three: The Giggle

Jacqueline King will be reprising her role as Donna’s mother Sylvia, and Karl Collins as Donna’s long suffering husband, Shaun. The show also welcomes Ruth Madeley who will be appearing as Shirley Anne Bingham.

Talking about the future, Russell T Davies, Showrunner previously said: “We’ve got plenty more surprises on the way! The path to Ncuti’s Fifteenth Doctor is laden with mystery, horror, robots, puppets, danger and fun! And how is it connected to the return of the wonderful Donna Noble? How, what, why?”

Doctor Who is available on BBC iPlayer.
