Jodie Whittaker’s time as the Time Lord is coming to an end. Doctor Who: The Power of the Doctor is the last of three TV specials that will wrap up Whittaker’s time as Thirteenth Doctor, and today we have a trailer to share with you that teases her final epic battle.
Here’s the official episode synopsis from the BBC:
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?
The Power of the Doctor sees the return of Janet Fielding and Sophie Aldred as former Classic-era companions Tegan and Ace. Then there’s Sacha Dhawan who is taking on the role of the Master.
When talking to Empire Magazine about the Doctor’s regeneration Whittaker says that her speech as “simple, epic and beautiful” and filmed in one long take. I’ve enjoyed Whittaker as The Doctor, but it will be interesting to see who ends up being revealed as the new Time Lord.
The Power of the Doctor will air on Sunday the 23rd of October on BBC One.
