Fan Reactions to ‘The Giggle’ - The Third of the 60th Anniversary Specials

Warning! This article contains spoilers for Doctor Who’s 60th Anniversary Special, The Giggle.

If you haven’t yet watched the Fourteenth Doctor and Donna Noble’s final exciting adventure together, watch the special now before returning back here to read some fan reactions…

“It feels different this time…”

The Doctor and Donna return to Earth to discover that the human race has descended into chaos, leading the Doctor to a fight with the Toymaker that he can never win! After teaming up with UNIT and playing the Toymaker’s maddening games, the Fourteenth Doctor regenerates - but this time it’s different.

In Ncuti Gatwa’s first outing as the Doctor, we’re introduced to bi-generation. The Fourteenth Doctor and Donna Noble live on together while a freshly regenerated Fifteenth Doctor flies away in his TARDIS. Phew! What did fans think of this mind-bending episode?

The terrifying Toymaker and his deadly games sent shivers up some fans' spines… and others had their socks knocked off with his jaunty Spice Girls performance!
