May 14th, 2023 by Marc Comments

Last night during The Eurovision Song Contest, the BBC dropped the trailer for the upcoming Doctor Who 60th Anniversary event and it looks great.

We had the reveal of the three-part event’s titles and they sound pretty epic and [returning] showrunner Russell T Davies has been discussing them and their significance.

The titles are:

Special Three: THE GIGGLE

“The titles are just the beginning of the Doctor’s biggest adventure yet.  Autumn is coming, with three hours of danger, Donna and disaster about to be unleashed!” Davies says.

The crossover event will see our generation’s [arguably] most iconic Doctor return in the form of David Tennant and it’s expected that they will lead into the next Doctor, Ncuti Gatwa, who is expected to make his grand debut in a Christmas Day special, something that we’ve not had since Peter Capaldi stepped down from the role and it’s something we here are FTN HQ are very excited for.

It’s also very cool that my personal favourite companion, Donna Noble, played by Catherine Tate, will also be coming back for one more adventure.

Oh, and Murray Gold, who composed the Doctor Who music from Eccleston to Capaldi’s era is returning too!

What exactly the episode title alludes to is currently unknown but isn’t it great to know that, even in this day and age, we can be surprised by something like Doctor Who?

Anyways, we still don’t have a release date for the episodes but my money is on it kicking off the weekend either before or after November 23rd – the actual anniversary date – but I could be wrong.

When I hear more, so will you guys.

Thoughts? I know you have them! Voice-off in the usual ways on FTN’s FacebookTwitter and Instagram

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….
