Doctor Who has unveiled a mysterious and unsettling teaser for its next episode, following the broadcast of tonight's The Star Beast.


Wild Blue Yonder – written by showrunner Russell T Davies – promises to take the Doctor (David Tennant) and Donna (Catherine Tate) "farther than ever before".

Speaking at a Q&A following a screening of The Star Beast, Davies said: "It's weird, the next one, it's kind of scary. It's not super scary, it's just weird."

The new teaser isn't giving much away – we see the TARDIS duo land aboard what appears to be a deserted spacecraft, only to detect life signs...

It certainly looks as though we're in for a change of pace following adventure romp The Star Beast, which was lauded in early reactions from Doctor Who fans.

Following Wild Blue Yonder, the final Doctor Who 60th special will be The Giggle, which will mark the return of classic villain The Toymaker (now played by Neil Patrick Harris).

Sex Education star Ncuti Gatwa's first episode as the Fifteenth Doctor will then follow just 16 days after The Giggle, airing on Christmas Day on BBC One.

Titled The Church on Ruby Road, this instalment will also see Millie Gibson make her debut as new companion Ruby Sunday.
