A sixty-second action-packed trailer for the Doctor Who 60th anniversary landed on December 25, 2022 as a special Christmas treat.
It has now been revealed that alongside previously announced Catherine Tate, Yasmin Finney and Neil Patrick Harris, Jacqueline King will be reprising her role as Donna’s mother Sylvia, and Karl Collins as Donna’s long suffering husband, Shaun.
Ruth Madeley will appear as Shirley Anne Bingham.
The trailer offers glimpses of monsters and the return of UNIT.
Showrunner Russell T Davies released this statement:
“We wanted to give fans, friends and families a lovely little Christmas present – with a promise that 2023 will be a riot of Doctor Who goodness!”
Doctor Who will return in November 2023 with three 60th anniversary specials starring David Tennant as the Fourteenth Doctor. In the following festive period, Ncuti Gatwa will star in his first full Doctor Who episode as the Fifteenth Doctor.
