The BBC has released another jampacked trailer for Doctor Who’s 60th-anniversary specials, featuring Heartstopper’s Yasmin Finney.
Back in May 2022, it was revealed that Finney would be joining the Doctor Who universe as a new Rose. “This show has a place in so many people’s hearts, so to be seen as a trans actress by the legend himself, Russell [T Davies], has not only made my year, it’s made my life,” she said in a statement following her casting.
It’s A Sin creator and Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies echoed similar sentiments in an additional statement at the time. “Life on Doctor Who gets brighter and wilder – how can there be another Rose?
You’ll find out in 2023, but it’s an absolute joy to welcome Yasmin to the Doctor Who set,” he teased. “We all fell in love with her in Heartstopper, one of those shows which changes the world – and now Yasmin can change the Whoniverse.” Over the last few months, Davies and the BBC have slowly released new information regarding the show’s 60th anniversary – which is set to see David Tennant and Catherine Tate return as the Doctor and Donna, respectively.
