Doctor Who 60th Anniversary Special Ep 2 preview
The Doctor Who 60th Anniversary Specials continue with the second instalment - Wild Blue Yonder. In the first of the new episodes, we saw David Tennant’s Doctor return in the central role. He is, in fact, depicting the 14th Doctor, not returning as the 10th. Fans get to see sidekick Donna Noble too, once again played by Catherine Tate.
Of course, it could not be smooth sailing for the pair. There is no proper reunion (yet). A spaceship crashing in London triggers a fight to the death as they try and save the planet.
Things are only set to ramp up in episode two. Donna's memories have been restored, but can the Doctor save her? We have not yet meet the Toymaker, played by Neil Patrick Harris, and do not quite know when he is going to appear. It could well be in this week. One thing is for sure, there is a long way to go before this trilogy resolves and Ncuti Gatwa becomes the 15th Doctor.
As with the other Doctor Who 60th Anniversary Specials, this second one was written by series veteran Russell T Davies. It was directed by Tom Kingsley, who has told fans not to speculate on special cameos or returning villains. Either way, it should be another thrilling watch.
