Doctor Who Season 1 Teaser: A Hard Day's Night for the Doctor & Ruby

With Ncuti Gatwa's Fifteenth Doctor & Millie Gibson's Ruby Sunday returning in 2024, here's a teaser for their first season of Doctor Who.

We celebrated 60 years of the long-running series. We spent the holidays getting to know Ncuti Gatwa's Fifteenth Doctor and Millie Gibson's Ruby Sunday a whole lot better. But now what? Showrunner Russell T. Davies answered that question in a very big way – with "The Church on Ruby Road" sending the duo off on a new series of adventures. And when should we be expecting to see the TARDIS next? Based on the teaser for "Season 1" (hmmm…), we know that it's going to be in May 2024 – but no specific date yet. But what we do get is a look at the Doctor & Ruby in action – and yes, that's the Beatles…

Doctor Who: Looking Ahead to Series 14/Series 1 & Series 15/Series 2

Along with Jemma Redgrave (Kate Lethbridge-Stewart), Aneurin Barnard (Roger ap Gwilliam), and Jack Forsyth-Noble (Will), Doctor Who Magazine #589 also confirmed that Bhav Joshi (Wedding Season), Eilidh Loan (Traces), Pete MacHale (Gangs of London), Miles Yekinni (Slow Horses), and Hemi Yeroham (Mamma Mia!) have joined the cast for the new series. In addition, Jinkx Monsoon (RuPaul's Drag Race) was also confirmed to have joined the cast – followed by Jonathan Groff (Glee, Mindhunter) and Indira Varma (Obsession, Game of Thrones) – as The Duchess – in May 2023.

Bonnie Langford was confirmed to be returning as Melanie Bush in June 2023, along with Lenny Rush (Am I Being Unreasonable) as Morris. In early August 2023, we also learned that Gemma Arrowsmith (Gemma Arrowsmith Sketched Out) and Mary Malone (Vera, The Prince) had joined the Christmas Special – while Majid Mehdizadeh-Valoujerdy (Hollyoaks) and Billy Brayshaw (Still So Awkward) had joined the Series 14 cast. In November 2023, we also learned that Nicola Coughlan (Derry Girls, Bridgerton) was set to guest star in the 2024 Christmas Special. On the writing side, we learned late last month that Kate Herron (Loki, Sex Education) & Briony Redman (Pont Brec) had co-written the episode that Groff and Varma are starring in during the upcoming series.

And here's a look at composer Murray Gold, Segun Akinola, and the BBC National Orchestra performing our upcoming Doctor's new theme – along with some words from RTD near the end:

Here's a look back at a video showcasing Gold & Akinola's new take on the Doctor Who theme:
