Beyond the substance of the clips, the most striking part of this trailer is how familiar it all feels to fans of Seasons 1 through 4, the era when showrunner Russell T. Davies was first helmed. . Not only has David Tennant barely aged, but the lighting and music feel like a throwback to the early years of the revival show. When the trailer gives us each special title, the background images are reminiscent of the Davies-era opening title sequence, not the Chibnall-era title sequence.
It is not yet clear whether these episodes will be released at the same time or weekly, but we do know that all three specials will air in November 2023. The specials will pave the way for the 15th Doctor, Ncuti Gatwa, to have his debut. episode “over the festive period”, most likely around Christmas. Will the 15th Doctor also make a surprise appearance during the anniversary specials? It’s certainly possible, as Doctor 12 (Peter Capaldi) made a cameo in the 50th anniversary special, a full month before Doctor 11 regenerated.
Either way, these specials promise to be chaotic and completely unlike anything “Doctor Who” has ever done before, and a particularly welcome treat for the many fans who love Tennant’s Doctor the most. Along with the teaser, Russell T. Davies promised viewers, “The titles are just the beginning of the Doctor’s greatest adventure yet. Autumn is coming, with three hours of danger, Donna, and disaster about to break loose.” “.
