A new Doctor Who 60th anniversary trailer is expected to drop during the final of the Eurovision Song Contest tonight.
Doctor Who fans are eagerly anticipating the show’s 60th-anniversary celebrations this November, and it seems that they might be getting a sneak peek during the Eurovision Song Contest Final.
A new trailer for the series, which has been dropping cryptic clues over the last few weeks, hints at a Eurovision reveal this evening.
Doctor Who’s 60th-anniversary special will see David Tennant returning as the Doctor, with Catherine Tate reprising her role as companion Donna Noble. The pair last appeared on screen together in the 2008 episode “Journey’s End”.
The anniversary special will feature three episodes, with the first set to air in November 2023.

In addition to Tennant and Tate, the special will also feature Jacqueline King as Donna’s mother Sylvia and Karl Collins as her husband Shaun. Bernard Cribbins, who played Donna’s grandfather Wilf, reprised his role before his death last summer.
The show will also welcome new cast members, including Heartstopper star Yasmin Finney as Rose, expected to be the daughter of Donna Noble, and Ruth Madeley as Shirley Anne Bingham. American star Neil Patrick Harris has also joined the cast as an unknown villain.
Russell T. Davies, who is returning as showrunner for the special, promises that the new episodes will be “spectacular”. He has also teased that the path to Ncuti Gatwa’s portrayal of the Fifteenth Doctor will be filled with mystery, horror, robots, puppets, danger, and fun.
Doctor Who has been a beloved British institution since its inception in 1963, and its fans are eagerly anticipating the upcoming anniversary special. The Eurovision Song Contest final, which will air tonight, may provide a glimpse of what’s to come. Fans can catch up on all episodes of Doctor Who on BBC iPlayer.
