The BBC has released a new trailer for The Power of the Doctor, teasing “Her Final Battle”, i.e. the last adventure for Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor.
We also see the return of Sophie Aldred as Ace, Janet Fielding as Tegan Jovanka, Jemma Redgrave as Kate Stewart, Sacha Dhawan as the Master, and more…
The TARDIS sign reading “HA HA HA” feels a bit “Bad Wolf”, doesn’t it?
And we’ve got a new plot synopsis too:
Action-adventure in space and time for all the family, starring Jodie Whittaker, Mandip Gill, John Bishop, Sophie Aldred, Janet Fielding and Sacha Dhawan. In this feature-length Special to mark her last adventure, Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor must fight for her very existence, against her deadliest enemies: the Daleks, the Cybermen, and her arch-nemesis, the Master.
Who is attacking a speeding bullet train on the edges of a distant galaxy? Why are seismologists going missing from 21st-century Earth? Who is defacing some of history’s most iconic paintings? Why is a Dalek trying to make contact with the Doctor? And just what hold does the mesmeric Rasputin have over Tsar Nicholas in 1916 Russia?
We expect this trailer to be shown extensively on TV over the coming fortnight, including either before or after tonight’s Strictly Come Dancing.
The Power of the Doctor, written by Chris Chibnall, airs on BBC1 and BBC America on Sunday 23rd October 2022.
