Digiguide also provided this same information two days earlier.

Doctor Who Magazine provided a synopsis of the episode:

A spaceship crashes in north London. Not that Donna Noble noticed; she had other things on her mind. Besides, there’s no such thing as aliens – right?! But then one turns up in her garden shed: the Meep. Another – the Doctor – barges into her kitchen. By the time a squadron of Wrarth Warriors shows up on her doorstep, the Noble family must face facts: Donna’s past is catching up with her. And her mind is about to be blown…

The behind-the-scenes show about The Star Beast, Doctor Who: Unleashed will follow on BBC Three at 7:30pm.

Doctor Who will return on 25 November 2023 with The Star Beast, the first of three Doctor Who 60th anniversary specials starring David Tennant as the Fourteenth Doctor and Catherine Tate as companion Donna Noble — followed by Wild Blue Yonder on 2 December and The Giggle on 9 December.

Ncuti Gatwa will star in his first full Doctor Who episode as the Fifteenth Doctor in the Doctor Who Christmas special The Church on Ruby Road alongside Millie Gibson as companion Ruby Sunday on 25 December.

A new 8-episode Doctor Who series starring Ncuti Gatwa and Millie Gibson will debut in Spring of 2024 followed by the 2024 Christmas special later in the year.
