Doctor Who Tales of the TARDIS: Pyramids of Mars Announced!

    Today, the BBC has announced Doctor Who Tales of the TARDIS: Pyramids of Mars. The brand-new episode will feature an appearance from the Fifteenth Doctor (Ncuti Gatwa) and Ruby Sunday (Millie Gibson) for the first time in Tales of the TARDIS. The timeless classic has been remastered into a feature-length omnibus episode with a cosmic makeover and updated visual effects.

    Tales of the TARDIS: Pyramids of Mars sees the TARDIS land in 1911. The original story featured the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen) battling the almighty Sutekh. Originally airing in 1975, this four part story introduced Sutekh (Gabriel Woolf) to the Whoniverse. Woolf would later voice “The Beast” in Doctor Who’s “The Impossible Planet”, before finally returning in “The Legend of Ruby Sunday”.

    Tales of the TARDIS: Pyramids of Mars sees the TARDIS land in 1911. In the grounds of the Old Priory, Egyptian mummies are walking and the Doctor and Sarah find that an ancient and powerful evil is menacing mankind.

    And now back on board the Remembered TARDIS, the Doctor and Ruby pause in battle to reflect on their recent adventures – all before they fight to save the universe in this Saturday’s highly anticipated season finale Empire of Death. The finale also sees Gabriel Woolf return as the legendary Sutekh, 48 years after his original role as the villain. 

    Tales of the TARDIS was originally launched in 2023 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Doctor Who. The six-part series saw beloved classic Doctor Who duos reunite as they reflected on their time on the TARDIS and adventures through space and time.

    Phil Collinson, Executive Producer, says: “Revisiting the rich history of Doctor Who is endlessly thrilling and this is no exception. It’s so exciting to bring back Tales of the TARDIS again, and to revisit a classic enemy of the Doctor. Gabriel Woolf as Sutekh, returning to terrify a whole new generation of children in a blistering season finale is what makes this show so special and appeal to so many across the generations.”

    Experience the moment the Doctor first met his ferocious enemy Sutekh when Tales of the TARDIS: Pyramids of Mars airs on Thursday 20th June at 8pm on BBC Four and BBC iPlayer. Doctor Who season one is now available on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the UK and on Disney+ in the rest of the world, where available.
