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?Doctor Who: The Power of The Doctor Synopsis
Titled “The Power of the Doctor“, the upcoming special episode is set to release in October 2022. It’s written by Chris Chibnall, the outgoing Doctor Who Showrunner and directed by Jamie Magnus Stone. Whittaker is joined by Mandip Gill (Yaz) and John Bishop (Dan) for her last adventure. However, she’ll also reunite with former Who companions. Janet Fielding and Sophie Aldred return as Tegan Jovanka and Ace, respectively.
Chris Chibnall personally wrote the story for “The Power of The Doctor“. He’ll also be departing with Jodie in the upcoming special. Make room for returning Showrunner Russell T Davies to take over in time for Doctor Who’s the 60th Anniversary in 2023. According to Whittaker, the writing for the special is beautiful.
I love the dialogue Chris wrote for my regeneration. It captures my Doctor beautifully. It’s simple, epic and beautiful.Jodie Whittaker via Empire Magazine
While the upcoming special may be a sad goodbye, it’s jam-packed. “The Power of the Doctor” is a 90-minute feature bringing back two much-loved companions. Additionally, it’s also bringing back The Doctor’s best enemies. Therefore we can expect lots of action from the Daleks and Cybermen. Additionally, we can’t forget Sacha Dhawan as “The Master”.
Yeah, It’s one for the Whovians. It’s a huge treat if you’re a proper fan. It’s got all the iconic things that you associate with Doctor Who. It’s massive.Jodie Whittaker – Via Empire Magazine
While many look forward to The Master, Daleks and Cybermen, I’m looking forward to UNIT being back. Actress Jemma Redgrave is back as Kate Stewart. However, she is also joined by Patrick O’Kane, who plays Lone Cyberman “Ashad”. Other surprises and reveals have been teased by creatives associated with the upcoming episode.
Doctor Who: The Power of The Doctor will air on October 23rd. Whovians can watch via BBC One and BBC iPlayer. This episode is the last of three specials that aired this year and will mark Jodie Whittaker’s final adventure as the Thirteenth Doctor. Fans expect a regeneration into either David Tennant or Ncuti Gatwa, perhaps both?
