They’re back! The Judoon are returning to Doctor Who to face the Thirteenth Doctor!

When Jodie Whittaker returns to Doctor Who next series, the Thirteenth Doctor and her friends won’t be the only familiar faces. The show, currently filming, is set to welcome back The Judoon as one of the Doctor’s fearsome adversaries.

More than twelve years after they stampeded onto screens to terrorise the Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones on the moon in 2007’s “Smith and Jones", the rhino-headed, brutish intergalactic police are returning to cause havoc and thrill children and adults alike.

These ruthless enforcers are on a deadly mission: but what for? And why has it brought them to present-day Gloucester?

The episode will also star acclaimed actor Neil Stuke. Neil has an established career on stage, television and films, and is a two times BAFTA nominee. Neil’s recent credits include Doctor Foster, Silk and Silent Witness.

Chris Chibnall, Showrunner said “No! Sho! Blo! The Judoon are storming back into Doctor Who in full force, and the streets of Gloucester aren’t safe. If anyone has anything to hide, confess now. The Judoon are taking no prisoners, and will stop at nothing to fulfil their mission! The whole team on Doctor Who are delighted and scared in equal measure to welcome them back: one of many treats we’ve got in store for viewers next series. And we’re over the moon (with Judoon), to be welcoming the wondrous Neil Stuke as guest star. We can’t wait to show you what happens when his path crosses with the Thirteenth Doctor."

The eleventh series of Doctor Who was the biggest series of the show in over a decade with an average audience of 8.6m viewers in the 28 days following broadcast, across all available devices.

Dish of the Day: Would you like to see the menu or make my acquaintance up close and personal?
Zaphod Beeblebrox: We'll both meet the meat.
Artemis 'PJ' Dent: Happy to make your acquaintance, Mr Dish, but I think I'll have a salad.

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe is the second book of the four book Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy 'trilogy' by Douglas Adams. The restaurant is actually called Milliways. A video of the depicted scene is available here:

Zaphod Beeblebrox played by Smyth and Jones. Artemis (Arthur) Dent is played by PJ who will from this day forth be known as Artemis 'PJ' Dent. The Dish of the Day is portrayed by the Dr Who Pig Pilot. In the Hitchhiker's Universe, D.O.D. was bovine. We have taken one more liberty making him porcine since this is the Year of the Pig.

13th Doctor

This is the stock sonic tool that came with the Character Options 13th Doctor. I can't look at it without wondering how they managed to get it so wrong. Now my mind is set on imagining a version of the famous sonic screwdriver that is perfect for my girl.

Doctor Who: The Runaway will be coming to international audiences at a later date.

The BBC has announced today that Doctor Who fans will soon be able to step inside a virtual reality version of the TARDIS in an upcoming immersive VR adventure called Doctor Who: The Runaway.

Viewers will join the Thirteenth Doctor on board the TARDIS in this animated interactive story from the BBC and Passion Animation Studios. Fans will get the chance to be the Doctor's champion and help her on this exciting adventure, as they find themselves at the centre of the action facing a deadly threat.

Jo Pearce, creative director for the BBC's digital drama team, said: “Fans will experience the TARDIS like never before in this thrilling new interactive story. As ever, the Doctor is full of warmth, wit and charm – helped by a wonderful performance from Jodie – which puts fans at the heart of the story as they immerse themselves in this beautifully animated world.” 

Zillah Watson, head of BBC VR Hub, said: “Our team at the BBC VR Hub has been creating new experiences with the goal of helping to usher virtual reality into the mainstream, and Doctor Who is exactly the sort of series that can help more people to try this new technology. The show has been pushing boundaries for over 55 years, and VR enables Doctor Who to explore a whole new dimension of storytelling.”

Featuring new original music from series composer Segun Akinola, Doctor Who: The Runaway has been written by Victoria Asare-Archer and directed by Mathias Chelebourg, whose previous VR films include Alice, the Virtual Reality Play and The Real Thing VR. It has been produced by the BBC’s digital drama team, BBC VR Hub and Passion Animation Studios.

‘Rosa' was one of the standout moments from series 11 with an amazing response to the story from fans around the world. Today, 4th February, marks 103 years since Rosa Parks (1913) was born and a chance for us to look back.

Not only was the episode embraced by the audience, it was also really important for our cast and crew to make.

‘It’s pretty tough to take and, you know, you really appreciate what people have done for history and time like Rosa Parks.’

Rosa Parks in 1997

The feedback to the episode was so strong, BBC News wrote a story on the reaction from fans while providing more information about the amazing woman.

 

The episode ended with the Doctor teaching Yaz, Ryan and Graham about what happened to Rosa Parks after the events of the episode. It was moments like this that caused school teachers to get in touch to tell us how they were using the episode in their classrooms.

Don’t forget you can still revisit ‘Rosa’ on BBC iPlayer, along with the other episodes from series 11.
