Old companions and incarnations of the Doctor will meet again in Tales Of The TARDIS, a new series of short scenes heading to BBC iPlayer.
If there were a knighthood for providing Doctor Who content, then Russell T Davies would surely have one by now.
Not only is most of the Doctor Who archive of episodes and various spin offs arriving on iPlayer on the 1st November, but the BBC has also today confirmed a very special series to celebrate the show’s 60th anniversary.
Tales Of The TARDIS is described as a series of six scenes which will reunite classic companions and Doctors, as original actors reprise their roles “reflecting on their adventures and in the process discovering something new” in scenes which will bookend classic episodes to create a feature length omnibus.
According to the episode guide, the actors will be reprising their roles in scenes attached to the following episodes:
Maureen O’Brien as Vicki and Peter Purves as Steven in The Time Meddler.
Frazer Hines as Jamie and Wendy Padbury as Zoe in The Mind Robber.
Katy Manning as Jo and Daniel Anthony as Clyde in The Three Doctors.
Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor and Janet Fielding as Tegan in Earthshock
Colin Baker as the Sixth Doctor and Nicola Bryant as Peri in Vengeance On Varos.
Sylvester McCoy as the Seventh Doctor and Sophie Aldred as Ace in The Curse Of Fenric.
The scenes have been written by Davies, Phil Ford and Pete McTighe.
Tales Of The Tardis will stream on BBC iPlayer as part of what the BBC are now calling the Whoniverse Collection from the 1st November.
We also have airdates for David Tennant and Catherine Tate’s second era aboard the TARDIS, as well as details of all the other celebratory stuff that’ll be appearing on the BBC on the 1st November. It’s a rather good time to be a Doctor Who fan, isn’t it?
