Doctor Who: Three 60th Anniversary Specials

The BBC has announced that it will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of Doctor Who with three specials. The first title has been revealed, titled “The Star Beast,” which will feature David Tennant returning as the fourteenth Doctor, alongside Catherine Tate as Donna Noble.

Tennant is the only Doctor Who actor to return to the series, having previously played the tenth Doctor. He will be seen in the specials as the 14th reincarnation of the time lord who travels through time and space. The second and third specials are titled “Wild Blue Yonder” and “The Giggle.”

The specials are set to air in November 2023 and will each be around an hour long. After that, Ncuti Gatwa will take over as the fifteenth Doctor, with new episodes starting on the Christmas holidays. Doctor Who will be broadcast exclusively on the BBC in the UK and Ireland. Outside of the UK and Ireland, the new Doctor Who seasons will be available in 150 markets on Disney+.

Doctor Who first began in 1963 and ran continuously until 1989, with a break until 2005. In 2005, the series was relaunched by British television producer and screenwriter Russell T Davies, with a total of 39 seasons and over 870 episodes, including 26 specials. The series is considered to be the longest-running and most successful science fiction series and is registered in the Guinness Book of Records.
