The BBC has released the first official images from the upcoming twelfth series of Doctor Who, which reveals that Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor is set to go up against the Tenth Doctor-era villains The Judoon.
“No! Sho! Blo! The Judoon are storming back into Doctor Who in full force, and the streets of Gloucester aren’t safe,” states showrunner Chris Chibnall. “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.”
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?
