Disney and the BBC have released a new trailer for Doctor Who’s 60th-anniversary season, giving fans a better look at guest star Neil Patrick Harris as the villainous Toymaker, an all-powerful enemy last seen on the series back in 1966.
Along with Harris’ character bringing a really big gun to the duel against David Tennant’s Doctor, the trailer features more of Jemma Redgrave returning to her role as Kate Lethbridge-Stewart, the leader of UNIT, an organization committed to protecting Earth from unusual threats, and a brief recap of the Doctor’s history with Donna Temple-Noble (Catherine Tate).
There’s also the briefest of glimpses of Ncuti Gatwa (Barbie, Netflix’s Sex Education) as the next Doctor, who will take on the role after Tennant’s character was re-regenerated from Jodi Whitaker’s character, making him the first actor to play the role twice.
The Doctor Who 60th-anniversary special episodes will debut on Disney+ starting November 25 with a three-episode premiere. It’s still unclear if the Doctor Who library will be available for Disney+ later on, as they’re now available on Max.
“I love this show, and this is the best of both worlds,” showrunner Russell T. Davies said in a press release last year with the initial announcement. “With the vision and joy of the BBC and Disney+ together we can launch the TARDIS all around the planet, reaching a new generation of fans while keeping our traditional home firmly on the BBC in the UK.”
