Doctor Who fans are ‘thrilled’ as Tegan and Ace star in new trailer

Doctor Who Fans are “thrilled” after BBC teased the return of two classic companions in the special anniversary trailer.

Actors Janet Fielding and Sophie Aldred will return as Tegan Jovanka and Ace in the final episode of Jodie Whittaker, which airs later this year.

Fielding was a companion to the Fourth and Fifth Doctors from 1981 to 1984, while Alred appeared on the show alongside the Seventh Doctor from 1987 to 1989.

The trailer, which was shown after the Easter special on Sunday night (April 17), also shows Whittaker’s Doctor being told that she is going to die.

The 39-year-old actress announced her departure from the series last year.

For the first time since Doctor Who returned to BBC One In 2005, the Master, the Daleks and the Cybermen will all appear in a single story.

“Jodie’s final full-length story is packed with treats and surprises for audiences and fans alike, not least the return of two of the most beloved companions in the show’s history,” said showrunner Chris Chibnall.

“You will help the Doctor fight her deadliest enemies on three fronts: the Master, Daleks and Cybermen, in one massive story!”

The “epic and emotional farewell to the thirteenth Doctor” will also mark the BBC’s centenary.

Fielding also shared her experience with the show. She said: “In some ways it was a very different experience than when I finished recording in 1983, but in many ways it was very similar. It was so nice to be a working member of the Doctor Who family again.”

Aldred added: “It was quite a challenge to keep such a big secret, even from my family, and I couldn’t be more excited and excited to be asked back. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I loved being part of the Tardis team again.”

Fans are pretty excited about the return of Fielding and Aldred’s characters.

“Little did I know that nostalgia was going to be the hottest quality to talk about in #DoctorWho as we saw companions I knew from back when I saw Who on screen as a kid who is now in the #13 Ace” , wrote one person.

Another fan added: “This makes me happier than I ever thought! Finally Ace and Tegan are back!

“Ace and Tegan?!? Holy shit I need to catch up with #DoctorWho fast,” wrote another fan.

Also confirmed to be taking to the big screen in the Doctor’s epic fight for survival are Jacob Anderson’s Vinder and Jemma Redgrave’s Kate Stewart.
