Disney+ and the BBC have announced premiere dates and released a brand-new trailer for the three upcoming Doctor Who 60th anniversary specials.

The first, The Star Beast, will premiere November 25th, followed by Wild Blue Yonder on December 2nd, and The Giggle on December 9th. The specials will reunite David Tennant with companion Donna Temple-Noble (Catherine Tate) – though this is Tennant’s debut as the Fourteenth Doctor – as they come to face their most terrifying villain yet: the Toymaker, played by Neil Patrick Harris in his series debut. The specials will air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK and Ireland, while premiering on Disney+ everywhere else.

The specials’ cast also includes newcomers Yasmin Finney as Rose Temple-Noble, Miriam Margolyes as the voice of the Meep and Ruth Madeley as Shirley Anne Bingham, as well as returning characters Jacqueline King as Sylvia Noble, Karl Collins as Shaun Temple, and Jemma Redgrave as Kate Lethbridge-Stewart.

Ncuti Gatwa will portray the Fifteenth Doctor, following the specials. All three episodes are written by returning showrunner Russell T. Davies and directed by Rachel Talalay, Tom Kingsley, and Chanya Button, respectively.
