The feature-length special will air this October
Doctor Who fans are preparing to wave goodbye to the 13th Doctor as she’s set to regenerate in the BBC sci-fi’s Centenary Special later this year.
Until now, the BBC has kept tight-lipped about the name of the feature-length episode – but it’s now officially been confirmed.
Jodie Whittaker’s final episode as The Doctor will be called 'The Power of the Doctor' according to the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine.
The title is likely alluding to The Doctor’s ability to regenerate, as showrunner Chris Chibnall has already confirmed Thirteen will transform into a new incarnation of the Time Lord in the special episode.
However, the name also shares similarities to some previous episodes of Doctor Who.
It bares similarities to a series of special episodes released under former showrunner Steven Moffat, including the show’s 50th anniversary special 'The Day of the Doctor' and Matt Smith’s final episode 'The Time of the Doctor' from 2013.
The feature-length special will see The Doctor and Yaz (Mandip Gill) face a trio of villains: the Cybermen, the Daleks and The Master (Sacha Dhawan).
However, it seems the time-travelling duo will have some help as classic companions Tegan Jovanka (Janet Fielding) and Ace (Sophie Aldred) return.
