Doctor Who fans were treated to a big episode for Easter Sunday and a trailer for the final Doctor Who featuring Jodie Whitaker was released after the episode aired. Viewers will see some former companions of the Doctor return for the special season finale episode.
Janet Fielding and Sophie Aldred will return to the franchise. The pair appeared as companions in the original incarnation of the Doctor Who series during the 1980s.
Per TV Insider, Alred said the following about returning to the franchise:
“It’s been quite a challenge to have such a big secret to keep, even from my family, and I couldn’t be more thrilled and excited to have been asked back. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I adored being part of the TARDIS team again.
Fielding also spoke about her return:
“In some ways, it was a very different experience to what it was like when I finished recording in 1983, but in many ways, it was very similar. It was so lovely to be a working member of the Doctor Who family again.”
Viewers will also see the Doctor face off against Sacha Dhawan’s The Master, as well as the Daleks and the Cybermen in the finale.
What do you think? Will you be sad to see Whitaker’s exit from Doctor Who this fall? Are you looking forward to seeing who will be the next Doctor?
