With David Tennant and Catherine Tate reprising their roles for the 60th anniversary, it has been confirmed that they will appear in three special episodes, set to air in November 2023.
The next Doctor, played by Ncuti Gatwa, will then take control of the TARDIS, with his first episode airing over the festive period in 2023. Ncuti will be joined in the TARDIS by Coronation Street's Millie Gibson, playing new companion Ruby Sunday.
Filming has officially commenced today, Monday 15th December, on the new series at Bad Wolf Studios in Wales. Further announcements are expected in due course.
Talking about the future, Russell T Davies, Showrunner said: “If you thought the appearance of David Tennant was a shock, 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? We’re giving you a year to speculate, and then all hell lets loose!”
The three special episodes will transmit in November 2023 as Doctor Who celebrates its 60th anniversary.
