Renowned actress Miriam Margolyes is set to make an appearance in Doctor Who’s 60th-anniversary specials scheduled to be broadcast this November. Miriam lends her voice to the Meep, an iconic character derived from The Star Beast comic strip.

On joining Doctor Who, Miriam Margolyes says: “I’m relieved I got to work on Doctor Who before I died. With sci-fi, you never know. Thank you for making an old woman very happy.”

In November 2023, Doctor Who will make its return with three special episodes featuring David Tennant as the Fourteenth Doctor, coinciding with the 60th-anniversary celebration. Ncuti Gatwa’s inaugural episode as the Fifteenth Doctor is scheduled to air during the festive period.

Doctor Who will debut exclusively on the BBC for viewers in the UK and Ireland. Outside of these regions, Disney+ will serve as the sole platform for the newest seasons of Doctor Who.
