Just moments before the start of the Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final, the BBC released a brand new trailer for the upcoming specials of “Doctor Who”, giving viewers an exciting glimpse of what to expect later this year when the TARDIS lands in time to celebrate its 60th anniversary.

The BBC has now revealed the titles of the three special episodes.  Over the past few weeks, in the build-up to the Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final, the BBC has been teasing vans with three mysterious coded teasers were scattered through the BBC One schedule. Each teaser included a binary code which gave eagle-eyed fans clues to one of the three special episode titles. The teasers all pointed to a big reveal on the night of the Eurovision Grand Final when the new trailer announced the titles as:

  • Special One: The Star Beast
  • Special Two: Wild Blue Yonder
  • Special Three: The Giggle

The exclusive trailer also gave an enthralling look at what’s to come with David Tennant as the Fourteenth Doctor, alongside Catherine Tate, who has reprised her role as Donna Noble, with further teasers of other epic moments, which include leading stars Neil Patrick Harris and Yasmin Finney who step into the world of Doctor Who for the 60th-anniversary special episodes.

Russell T Davies, Showrunner, said in a statement:

“The titles are just the beginning of the Doctor’s biggest adventure yet.  Autumn is coming, with three hours of danger, Donna and disaster about to be unleashed!”
