Tales of the TARDIS: Pyramids of Mars

Following The Legend of Ruby Sunday, Tales of the TARDIS returns to the Pyramids of Mars.

Aboard the Remembered TARDIS, the Doctor (Ncuti Gatwa) and Ruby Sunday (Millie Gibson) revisit the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen) adventure from 1975 as they battle Sutekh (Gabriel Woolf) in an omnibus edition with updated music and special effects.

Phil Collinson, Executive Producer, says: “Revisiting the rich history of Doctor Who is endlessly thrilling and this is no exception. It’s so exciting to bring back TALES OF THE TARDIS again, and to revisit a classic enemy of the Doctor. Gabriel Woolf as Sutekh, returning to terrify a whole new generation of children in a blistering season finale is what makes this show so special and appeal to so many across the generations.”

From my formative Whovian years, Pyramids of Mars sees Tom Baker and Elisabeth Sladen at the peak of their powers!

The iconic voice of Sutekh, Gabriel Woolf, discusses bringing the terrifying villain back to the Whoniverse in the season one two-part finale: "It felt sort of inevitable in a way. I’d never lost Sutekh because of the fans. They’ve kept him alive, organised conventions all over the place, so it feels kind of natural."

The special one-off Tales of the TARDIS premieres in the UK on Thursday 20th June on BBC Four and BBC iPlayer.

New episodes of Doctor Who stream every Friday on Disney+ outside the UK and Ireland and every Saturday on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. Season one is available for pre-order (affiliate link).
