The BBC have released the first official trailer for upcoming Doctor Who special Legend Of The Sea Devils.
The special, which airs this Easter on BBC One, will see the long awaited return of the Sea Devils, a classic monster first seen with the third Doctor Jon Pertwee in The Sea Devils (1972).
The 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? Why has legendary pirate queen Madam Ching come searching for a lost treasure? What terrifying forces lurk beneath the oceans of the nineteenth century? And did Yaz really have to dress Dan up as a pirate?
The episode guest stars Arthur Lee as Ji-Hun and Marlowe Chan-Reeves as Ying Ki. Legend Of The Sea Devils marks the penultimate episode for Jodie Whittaker's Doctor before she regenerates this Autumn in an as-yet-untitled special to mark the BBC's centenary. The identity of the next Doctor will be announced "in due course".
Doctor Who: Legend Of The Sea Devils airs Sunday 17th April on BBC One. The episode provisionally scheduled for 7pm [UK].
