New “Doctor Who” Mini-Episode Coming to Disney+ Tomorrow (or Not)

Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies has teased that something new is coming to Disney+ sooner than you might think… tomorrow!

UPDATE – 3/15/2024:

  • Turns out there was not a new mini-episode released during Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day, however we did receive a short new teaser for the new season.
  • Additionally, we learned that the first two episodes of the new season will premiere Friday, May 10th on Disney+.

Previously – 3/14/2024:

  • Doctor Who’s showrunner Russell T Davies shared on his Instagram that an incoming “Destination” will arrive tomorrow on BBC iPlayer in the U.K. and Disney+ in the rest of the world.
  • This is likely a mini-episode to coincide with Comic Relief, an biannual charity event that Doctor Who has frequently produced special mini-episodes for.
  • A previous “Destination” mini-episode was created for Children in Need in November 2023, giving us our first look at the Fourteenth Doctor (David Tennant) prior to his full debut in the 60th anniversary specials.
  • That special was only shown on YouTube outside of the U.K., while this new one will be available on Disney+.
  • No other details regarding the special have been revealed at this time.
