Are you proper excited yet? From the look of things, early suspicions about each of the specials have turned out to be correct. The first of these special “Doctor Who” episodes, titled “The Star Beast,” will focus on everyone’s favorite Doctor-companion, Catherine Tate’s Donna Noble. This will certainly be an interesting reunion for, as fans likely recall, Donna bowed out of the series with the memories of her time with the Doctor erased. More than that, were she to regain those memories, her mind was implied to be at risk of completely unraveling. Russell T. Davies, the showrunner behind Tennant and Tate’s run of episodes, who’s come back for the specials and season 14, acknowledged this tension in a press release, joking, “They’re back! And it looks impossible — first, we announce a new Doctor, and then an old Doctor, along with the wonderful Donna, what on earth is happening? Maybe this is a missing story. Or a parallel world. Or a dream, or a trick, or a flashback.” In any case, we’re happy to see this iconic pair back together.
Special #2, “Wild Blue Yonder,” is not an adaptation of the official song of the U.S. Air Force, which shares the same name, nor does it appear to be a remake of Werner Herzog’s 2005 alien Brad Dourif movie, also of the same name. No, this “Wild Blue Yonder” will focus on a villain played by Neil Patrick Harris, possibly a reinterpretation of the classic “Who” villain The Master, or possibly the Celestial Toymaker, a throwback antagonist from the First Doctor (William Hartnell) era.
“The Giggle,” well, seems to be about a giant, plushy, giggling alien. I’ll be firmly sat for that one. The “Doctor Who” 60th anniversary specials will air sometime in November on Disney+.
