Old friends & foes back for Beeb's 100th birthday bash

THE Master, the Daleks and the Cybermen will all feature in a special Doctor Who episode to mark the BBC's centenary.

A first look at the anniversary one-off has also revealed two Doctor's companions from the 1980s will reprise their roles for the first time since leaving the show.

The centenary special, which will air later this year, will also be Jodie Whittaker's last outing as the Time Lord.

Showrunner Chris Chibnall, who is also leaving the popular programme, said: "Jodie's final feature-length story contains a plethora of treats and surprises for audiences and fans, not least the return of two of the most beloved companions in the show's history

"They'll be helping the Doctor fight on three fronts, against her deadliest enemies: the Master, Daleks and Cybermen, in one huge story

It will be the first time the three classic foes will all feature in one single storyline since the show returned to BBC One in 2005.

Janet Fielding will also return as Tegan Jovanka, the companion to both the fourth and fifth Doctors, while Sophie Aldred is back as Ace.

Sophie said: "It's been quite a challenge to have such a big secret to keep, even from my family, and I couldn't be more thrilled and excited to have been asked back.

"I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I adored being part of the Tardis team again."
