WATCH: Russell T Davies has written a new follow up to Doctor Who episode Rose

March 28th, 2020 by Marc Comments

It seems we’re having something of a resurgence of Doctor Who from days gone by with, in just over a week, there having been rewatches of the 50th anniversary special Day of the Doctor – which really reminded me of how much fun the series used to be be and, more recently, a watch of Rose.

The episode which kicked off the return of Doctor Who 15 years ago (on Thursday past) and starred Christopher Eccleston as The Doctor and Billie Piper as the titular Rose.

However, there was more to is as then showrunner Russell T Davies wrote a new coda for the episode, which you can watch below..

Starring Big Finish’s Jacob Dudman, the episode is called Revenge of the Nestene and picks up just after the episode ends.

It’s a fun little ad-on to the Eccleston years and proof that, even in lockdown, there’s room for the Doctor in our world.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
