Anticipation for the Doctor Who 60th anniversary celebrations has been ramping up in recent weeks – especially following the debut of a brand new trailer that aired ahead of last week's Eurovision Song Contest.


As well as offering fans another glimpse of returning stars David Tennant and Catherine Tate, the short clip revealed that the titles of the three episodes would be The Star Beast, Wild Blue Yonder and The Giggle.

Meanwhile, Neil Patrick Harris also features prominently in the trailer as an enigmatic antagonist – with one memorable scene showing him dancing with Tenant's Doctor.

Much of the third special was shot in and around Bristol – and now Twitter account Bristol Mosaic has offered an intriguing behind-the-scenes look at the locations.

The account shared several posts showing stills from the trailer matched up perfectly with the real-life places where they were shot – with Tennant and Harris both featuring prominently.

There's still a little while before the 60th anniversary specials are actually broadcast – with the episodes expected to air on BBC One at some point in November – but as more details have trickled through excitement has continued to build.

The BBC previously aired short teasers on Christmas Day and during the Red Nose Day fundraiser, but the latest one contained enough new footage to send fans into a flurry all over again.

Acclaimed actor Harris, who previously worked with Davies on It's a Sin, is also joined in the specials by Heartstopper's Yasmin Finney – who is playing a character intriguingly named Rose.
