Return: David Tennant and Catherine Tate will make their return to mark the anniversary with three special episodes running each Saturday from November 25
Joining them are Karl Collins as Shaun Temple, Ruth Madeley as Shirley Anne-Bingham, Jemma Redgrave as Kate Stewart and Neil Patrick Harris as the Toymaker.
It comes after the show released the latest trailer for the anniversary specials last month.
Viewers branded the footage ‘insane’ as Donna Noble makes her dramatic return to the franchise alongside Kate Lethbridge-Stewart (Jemma Redgrave).
Fans were left ‘heartbroken’ when The Doctor revealed he may not be able to save his lovable companion’s ‘life this time’, meaning Donna could be killed off in the upcoming episodes.
The brand new trailer also confirmed Neil Patrick-Harris’ villain is none other than The Doctor’s former foe The Toymaker, last seen on the show in 1966.
Donna can be seen having her memories returned to her as she and the Doctor come face to face with The Toymaker as he causes havoc on earth.
The trailer also teased other villains that would feature in the specials, with one so scary it led The Doctor’s spaceship the TARDIS to ‘run away’.
However Donna, who last appeared in the series in 2007, was her usual outspoken and fearless self and declared ‘Let’s kick it’s a***!’.
