One of the hardest things fans have to do is say goodbye to their favorite characters and dynamics. But on Doctor Who, this is a regular occurrence as Time Lords regenerate and companions move on to make room for new friends. Doctor Who also always offers the hope that fan-favorite characters and Doctors will return, though. What is timey wimey stuff good for anyway, if not to bring back some familiar faces? But the Doctor Who 60th anniversary special has gone above and beyond. It will not only bring back David Tennant as the Tenth, now Fourteenth, Doctor, but it will also likely reunite him with universally loved Doctor Who companion Donna Noble. Catherine Tate will return as everyone’s favorite redhead.
The trailer for the Doctor Who anniversary special will likely bring you to tears, even if you only label yourself a casual fan of the show. Who doesn’t love reunions? (Or, almost reunions, as the case may be.)
“Allons-y!” David Tennant’s Doctor says, and the crowd goes wild. Of course, the 60th anniversary special can’t be all fun and games. Because as the Doctor Who trailer reminds us if Donna Noble ever remembers her time with the Doctor, then she will die. That’s high stakes, but we’re sure Donna will remember Ten somehow.
The trailer also introduces us to Doctor Who‘s latest villain in the form of Neil Patrick Harris. He looks to be something of a circus master and definitely sinister. But on the other hand, we get to meet the live-action version of Beep the Meep, who has to date only appeared in Doctor Who comics. What an adorable fluff ball! Of course, Ncuti Gatwa’s delightful Doctor makes an appearance right at the end. We can’t wait to see how he works into the adventure.
That’s a lot for one small teaser. Though the 60th-anniversary special trailer has us excited for more Doctor Who right now, we’ll have to wait a while longer to see Ten, Donna, and the rest. The special will begin to air in November 2023. Ncuti Gatwa and his Fifteenth Doctor will then arrive on our screens in 2024. Allons-y!
