Unveiling The Epic 60th Anniversary “Doctor Who” Specials

David Tennant says he would like to play Kilgrave again in the MCU. Pity he's dead, but you never know with Marvel.

In an exciting development for fans of the iconic “Doctor Who” series, Disney Branded Television and the BBC have unveiled the trailer and premiere dates for three special episodes in celebration of the show’s 60th anniversary. This collaboration aims to bring the beloved series to a global audience, and the anticipation is reaching a fever pitch.

The three forthcoming specials are titled “The Star Beast,” set to air on November 25, “Wild Blue Yonder,” scheduled for December 2, and “The Giggle,” which will be premiering on December 9. While fans around the world can catch these episodes on Disney+, viewers in the UK and Ireland will enjoy them on the BBC.

What’s even more thrilling for long-time fans of the show is that these specials will see the return of the Fourteenth Doctor, portrayed by the charismatic David Tennant, alongside Catherine Tate, who reprises her role as Donna Temple-Noble. The duo will face their most menacing adversary yet, the Toymaker, portrayed by Neil Patrick Harris in his first appearance on “Doctor Who.”

Adding to the excitement, the cast welcomes new members, including Yasmin Finney as Rose Temple-Noble, Miriam Margolyes lending her voice to the Meep, and Ruth Madeley as Shirley Anne Bingham. Familiar characters also make a comeback, with Jacqueline King returning as Sylvia Noble, Karl Collins as Shaun Temple, and Jemma Redgrave as Kate Lethbridge-Stewart.
