Doctor Who's swashbuckling special

Doctor Who returns with some old enemies - not seen since Warriors of the Deep - in a swashbuckling special this Easter.

Ever since the Silurians returned to Doctor Who in 2010, fans (myself included) have hoped their marine cousins, the Sea Devils, would be back. Well, this Easter the underwater menace (see what I did there?) that threatened Jon Pertwee and Peter Davison during the classic era are returning in Legend of the Sea Devils.

Looks like they'll be bringing the Myrka with them.

Read the story synopsis:

"In a swashbuckling pirate adventure, the Doctor, Yaz and Dan come face to fin with one of the Doctor’s oldest adversaries in a coastal village in 19th century China. Madam Ching is on a mission to track down the lost treasure of the Flor de la Mar, a ship that may have been washed up in the waters around the area. The fearsome pirate queen unwittingly unleashes a terrifying, monstrous alien force beneath the sea – Sea Devils and their ghostly amphibious pirate ship. Will the Doctor, Yaz and Dan emerge from this adventure to save the planet? And did Yaz really have to dress Dan up as a pirate?"

Legend of the Sea Devils, the second of three specials in 2022 marking the end of Jodie Whittaker's tenure as the titular Time Lord, is on BBC One, BBC iPlayer and BBC America on 17th April. Stay tuned for Nick Smith's review soon.
