Hold on to your sonic screwdrivers, Whovians, because Russell T Davies is cooking up a storm of surprises for us in the upcoming episodes of Doctor Who! Yes, he’s the mastermind behind the three 60th Anniversary specials, and he spilled the beans on when we’ll first lay eyes on Ncuti Gatwa’s Doctor.
Get ready for the third special, cunningly titled “The Giggle.” I mean, who wouldn’t want a Doctor with a sense of humor, right? Russell, our guide through the wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff, spilled the tea that Ncuti will make his grand entrance there before the full-blown Christmas Day spectacle.
In a language only a Time Lord could decipher, Russell declared, “Oh, yes! Brace yourselves for a spanking-new Doctor! Your burning questions will get some TLC, but don’t pack away those question marks just yet because we’re tossing in even more head-scratchers, leading you straight into Christmas Day, where Ncuti Gatwa’s Doctor will burst onto the scene like a TARDIS-shaped firework. And let me tell you, we’ve cooked up surprises that even the Daleks would give a gold star for, things done in ways that’ll make your eyebrows raise higher than the TARDIS travels through time and, of course, a whole bunch of fun!”
Make a date with your sofa, because the Doctor Who 60th Anniversary specials are serving up more excitement than a Dalek at a disco. Check out the trailer for a sneak peek into the chaos here. “The Star Beast” is already causing a stir on Disney+, with the next two dropping on December 2nd and December 9th faster than the TARDIS jumps through dimensions. It’s time to set your timepieces, laugh in the face of paradoxes, and get ready for a festive season that even the Silence won’t be able to keep quiet about!
