The Power of The Doctor saw Jodie Whittaker’s final episode as The Doctor and featured return of the Doctor’s biggest adversary – The Master (Sacha Dhawan), who last appeared in series 12’s final episode The Timeless Children.
Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor regenerated into a familiar face and it has now been officially confirmed that David Tennant will be the Fourteenth Doctor.
But what has led to the return of a much loved face? Check out the preview below.
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.
The 90-minute special, The Power of the Doctor, was made as part of the BBC’s centenary celebrations, and also featured cameos from actors who had piloted the Tardis in the 1980s and 90s, with Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann all reprising the role of the Doctor with the actor David Bradley reprising his interpretation of the first Doctor William Hartnell, and a cameo appearance by William Russell, now aged 97. Russell starred in the very first episode of Doctor Who in 1963 as Ian Chesterton, one of the teachers whisked away into the Tardis for a life of adventures in time and space as a companion to Hartnell’s Doctor.
There was also a cameo for Jo Martin, who in recent years has played a mysterious “fugitive” version of the Doctor from her past, and returning companions from the 1980s Tegan (Janet Fielding) and Ace (Sophie Aldred) played a major role in the story, with Katy Manning, Bradley Walsh and Bonnie Langford all also returning.
The special is released on DVD/BluRay on 7th November in UK and December 13th in US.
