Catherine Tate, who also reprised her role as Donna Noble, joins Tennant as he heads out on an epic adventure across space and time to fight Neil Patrick Harris as the Toymaker, an all-powerful enemy last seen on the show in 1966.
“I don’t believe in destiny but if destiny exists, then it is heading for Donna Noble,” Tennant can be heard saying in the footage.
As they try to figure out why the Doctor has come face-to-face with an enemy from his past, Jemma Redgrave also returns to her role as Kate Lethbridge-Stewart, the leader of UNIT.
“This is just the start, as the fever starts to burn,” showrunner Russell T Davies said. “We’re heading for a November full of Doctor Who surprises, for fans and new viewers alike. Stay alert!”
Tennant, who previously starred in Doctor Who for five years as the tenth doctor, returned for the special episodes to celebrate the anniversary of the popular BBC and Disney+ series, which was created in 1963 and then revived in 2005.
It was also previously announced that Jacqueline King and Karl Collins would be returning as Sylvia Noble and Shaun Temple, respectively, in the 60th anniversary specials, as well as Ruth Madeley was introduced as Shirley Anne Bingham.
