They’ll appear in a trio of specials this autumn before Ncuti Gatwa takes control of the TARDIS as the Fifteenth Doctor over the festive period for a brand new full series.

Watch the trailer below!

Alongside the trailer, the titles of the three specials have been confirmed: The Star Beast, Wild Blue Yonder and The Giggle.

A start date for the specials is to be announced but it’s expected Doctor Who will return in November 2023.

A teaser shares: “The Doctor and Donna parted ways when the Doctor had to wipe Donna’s memory, making her forget him, in order to save her life.

“He left her family with a warning: if ever she remembers, she will die. But with the two coming face to face once more, the big question is, just what brings the Doctor and Donna back together?”

Russell T Davies, Showrunner said: “This is just the start, as the fever starts to burn. We’re heading for a November full of Doctor Who surprises, for fans and new viewers alike. Stay alert!”

Further casting for the upcoming episodes includes Neil Patrick Harris, Yasmin Finney, Ruth Madeley, Jinkx Monsoon and Jonathan Groff. Plus, Millie Gibson will star alongside Ncuti’s Fifteenth Doctor as companion Ruby Sunday.

Meanwhile the upcoming specials will feature Jacqueline King reprising her role as Donna’s mother Sylvia, and Karl Collins as Donna’s long suffering husband, Shaun.
