Synopsis and Cast Revealed for Doctor Who: Dot and Bubble

The BBC has released a synopsis for the next episode of Doctor Who, the unusually-titled Dot and Bubble.

Now we’re into the second half of Doctor Who Series 14, what can we expect from the upcoming episodes? We’ve had a musical-ish episode, a kooky tale about space babies, a folklore-inspired Stones of Blood-esque creeper, and the return of Steven Moffat when the Doctor trod on a landmine. This week, social media is under the spotlight…

The world of Finetime, a colony on an alien planet, seems happy and harmonious — but an awful terror is preying on the citizens. Lindy Pepper Bean (Callie Cooke) must contend with an out-of-control dangerous situation. A gurgling, slobbering, munching sound can be heard from around the corner and her friends are mysteriously disappearing. Can the Doctor and Ruby make the denizens of Finetime see the truth before it’s too late?

Is it just us or does this feel quite Big Finish-like already?

Ncuti Gatwa and Millie Gibson are obviously back as the Fifteenth Doctor and Ruby Sunday respectively, and here’s who else is in Dot and Bubble:

  • Lindy Pepper-Bean: Callie Cooke
  • Ricky September: Tom Rhys Harries
  • Cooper Mercy: Eilidh Loan
  • Harry Tendency: Aldous Ciokajlo Squire
  • Hoochy Pie: Niamh Lynch
  • Valerie Nook: Millie Kent
  • Blake Very Blue: Billy Brayshaw
  • Gothic Paul: Pete MacHale
  • Dr Pee: Max Boast
  • Rotterdam Twin 1: Elloise Bennett
  • Rotterdam Twin 2: Olivia Bennett
  • Weatherman Will: Jack Forsyth-Noble
  • Alan K Sullivan: Milo Callaghan
  • Penny Pepper-Bean: Susan Twist
  • Suzie Pentecost: Ellie-Grace Cashin
  • Brewster Cavendish: Jamie Barnard

Yep, Susan Twist is back again…

The episode is written by Russell T Davies, and directed by 73 Yards director, Dylan Holmes Williams.

Dot and Bubble is available on BBC1, iPlayer, and Disney+ this Saturday (1st June 2024).
