The Thirteenth Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, and ‘the fam’ – Yaz, Ryan and Graham- will kick-off 2021 with an action-packed episode.

Chris, 66, previously appeared in the series 11 episode Arachnids in the UK and it’s safe to say the Doctor and all those involved were less than impressed by his actions.

His American businessman character Jack built a hotel on a landfill site in Sheffield and even ran for president.

When his bodyguard was killed by a mother spider, Jack teamed up with the Doctor to try and decipher what made the the creatures so large.

However when the team found the spider, he shot it and left. It is not known what has brought his character back for the festive special.  

Star of the stage and screen Dame Harriet Walter will also be making her Doctor Who debut for the festive show alongside TV star Nathan Stewart-Jarrett who has recently appeared in The Trial of Christine Keeler.

Viewers last saw the Thirteenth Doctor at the end of series 12 where her fate was left hanging in the balance as she was locked away in a high-security alien prison.

In the upcoming festive special, Yaz, Ryan and Graham are far away on Earth and having to carry on with their lives without her.

However they soon discover a disturbing plan forming – a plan which involves a Dalek. 

Even with Captain Jack’s help, the gang are set to face one of their biggest and most frightening challenges yet.

Chris Chibnall, Executive Producer, said: ‘We’ve crammed this year’s Doctor Who Festive Special with an explosion of extraordinary acting talent. 

‘Where else would you get British acting royalty, a globally renowned US screen star, an (inter)national treasure of stage and screen and one of Britain’s hottest young actors — just in the guest cast!

‘Put those together with Jodie Whittaker, Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill and Tosin Cole (and Daleks! Did I mention Daleks!) — and you get a cast to be exterminated for. And things will explode. Promise.’

It comes after the BBC revealed that Captain Jack is back, again, and is set to return in Revolution Of The Daleks. 

John Barrowman, 53, is reprising his role once more, after making a surprise cameo in series 12’s Fugitive Of The Judoon earlier this year.  

Gushing about his return, John said in a statement: ‘Putting on Jack’s coat and setting foot back on the set of Doctor Who was just like going back home. It’s always thrilling to play Captain Jack.

‘He’s a character very close to my heart who changed my life, and to know the fans love him as much as I do makes his return even sweeter. I hope everyone enjoys Jack’s Heroic adventure with Thirteen.’ 

Showrunner Chris Chibnall went on: ‘A Doctor Who Festive Special means treats galore, and there’s no bigger treat than the return of John Barrowman to Doctor Who, for an epic and emotional feature-length episode.

‘If anyone can blast away the sheer rubbishness of 2020, it’s Captain Jack. Daleks beware!’

In Fugitive Of The Judoon, Graham, Ryan, and Yaz find themselves transported to a spaceship piloted by Jack, and gives the trio a warning for The Doctor about ‘The Lone Cyberman’.

Before that moment, Captain Jack had not been seen on the show since a cameo in 2011, and not as a main character since 2009.

John first appeared in Doctor Who back in 2005, in a two-part story with Christopher Eccleston’s iteration of the titular Time Lord, before going on to star in multiple episodes with both Christopher and David Tennant’s Doctors.

The character of Captain Jack became so popular he bagged his own spin-off series Torchwood, where the character took the lead role for four series’, concluding in 2011’s ‘Children of Earth’.
