Now that all those street parties have quietened down, we can say there’s only one jubilee we at STARBURST are excited about, and that’s Doctor Who’s sixtieth, set to be marked in 2023.
The show’s celebration of this big birthday is already looking packed, with David Tennant and Catherine Tate returning alongside popular showrunner Russell T Davies, new Doctor Ncuti Gatwa making his debut, and Heartstopper’s Yasmin Finney among the cast.
And now one more major cast member has joined the party – Emmy and Tony-winning star Neil Patrick Harris has been confirmed to be making an appearance, as a character Davies has described as “the greatest enemy the Doctor has ever faced”. Speculate away as to what that means.
Harris recently worked with Davies on his brilliant Channel 4 drama It’s A Sin, and will be known to STARBURST readers for his appearances in The Matrix Resurrections, A Series of Unfortunate Events, and Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, among other cult credits.
Doctor Who celebrates its sixtieth anniversary in November 2023, but the celebration is rumoured to take place across a series of three specials, with exact broadcast dates to be confirmed. Before that, of course, current Doctor Jodie Whittaker will be seen in one last episode later this year.
