Happy 60th anniversary to Doctor Who!
The franchise has begun its celebrations of 60 years with The Star Beast an adaptation of a Doctor Who Magazine comic strip, this time with David Tennant as the Fourteenth Doctor, plus Catherine Tate and Jacqueline King returning as Donna and Sylvia Noble respectively. The special also stars Yasmin Finney as Donna’s daughter, Rose, and kicks off a trilogy of episodes with Tennant and Tate.
Oh, and there was a marvellously murderous Meep involved too.
But what did you think?
The DWC wants to hear from you.
First, we’d love for you to vote in our online poll…
And then, we’d like the comments section below to be your go-to place for discussing what you thought of every aspect of the tale. How does it feel having David and Catherine back? Did it live up to expectations? How does it compare to Doctor Who and the Star Beast, the original comic on which it was based? This is also the first episode with Russell T Davies back as showrunner, beginning a new era for the show — one which continues with next week’s Wild Blue Yonder then The Giggle after that, before a Christmas Day special, The Church on Ruby Road, introduces the Fifteenth Doctor (Ncuti Gatwa) properly, alongside new companion, Ruby Sunday, played by Millie Gibson. So how are we all feeling about that? Does this all bode well? Or have you got reservations?
Sound off in the comments below; our normal rules about staying respectful and polite, as always, apply.
