New Doctor Who images see The Doctor and Ruby step back to the sixties

Doctor Who: BBC release anniversary special trailer

There are still over six months until Ncuti Gatwa and Millie Gibson make their on-screen debuts in Doctor Who as The Doctor and his companion Ruby Sunday respectively, and filming on the next series is continuing apace.

The latest spoiler images released by the BBC show the pair decked out in swinging 60s-style attire indicating at least one episode of the hit sci-fi show will take place in that era.

While no information has been given about the episode the BBC simply said: “It’s official, the TARDIS has landed in the 60’s!”

The pair were striking several poses in the stunning images, which wouldn’t look out of place in a 1960s fashion magazine.

Ncuti looked incredibly sharp in a blue striped suit, with a double-breasted jacket and narrow pants.

With filming well underway on the next series of Doctor Who the BBC have released sensational spoiler images which show The Doctor and his companion Ruby in full swinging 60s garb.

Underneath he sported a white shirt and a silver tie, with pointed black shoes and accessorised with several silver rings.

The choice of colour is likely a nod to the TARDIS, the exterior of which is famously a blue police box.

He was also wearing a short afro wig to disguise his own short hair. Meanwhile, Millie was every inch the 60s bombshell in a monochrome outfit.

Her black and white mini dress and white boots are reminiscent of the designs of Mary Quant who died recently.

She teamed the look with sheer black tights and sported her hair in a 60s-style updo. The 60s setting could indicate the episode is a nod to the show’s history.

In November this year, it will celebrate its 60th anniversary having first been broadcast in 1963, with The Doctor being played by William Hartnell.

Arriving in that era would afford the Doctor an opportunity to revisit some of his old haunts from the first episode.

The show will officially mark the occasion of the 60th anniversary with three special episodes in which David Tennant will reprise the role of The Doctor.

The specials will also see the return of Catherine Tate’s hugely popular companion Donna Noble, while How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris is set to play a villain in the episodes.

Poignantly the three-part story will also mark the final on-screen appearance of acting legend Bernard Cribbins as Donn’s grandfather Wilf.

The award-winning actor died in July last year at the age of 93 following a career that spanned more than seven decades.

Prior to his death, he was spotted in character on the set with David Tennant’s Doctor pushing him in a wheelchair.

The Doctor Who anniversary specials will air later this year. Previous episodes of the show are available on the BBC iPlayer.
