Russell T Davies has announced 'Rose: The Sequel' will air online this evening (26.03.20).
The former 'Doctor Who' showrunner has added to already special day of Time Lord treats for Whovians, and he confirmed another adventure set after 'Rose' - which was the original 2005 'pilot' for the rebooted version of the sci-fi show starring Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor and Billie Piper as the titular Rose Tyler.
He tweeted: "Okay, so, PREQUEL on the BBC website at 2, then 2.30 on my instagram in a different format. What can this mean?!
"Rose at 7pm, then 7.45pm, ROSE: THE SEQUEL. Yes! The sequel! I can't stay on here all day, sorry, back later #TripOfALifetime (sic)"
It's not known what the sequel will involve, but watchalong organiser Emily Cook revealed Russell wrote a brand new script for the adventure.
She added: "Yes, it's happening!!! Russell's written it. I've produced it. And we can't wait to share it with you all later! #TripofaLifetime #DoctorWho (sic)"
Meanwhile, the prequel - titled 'Doctor Who and the Time War' - was published as a story on the BBC website, and Russell explained he was originally asked to write the story for Doctor Who Magazine, but Steven Moffat's 'Day of the Doctor' put a stop to it.
He said: "So the idea was snuffed a-borning. Until 2020. When a science fiction-shaped virus came along to change our lives (honestly, I've written the end of the world 100 times, but I never imagined everyone just sitting at home).
"Emily Cook of DWM created the livestream Day of the Doctor, then turned to Rose, and asked me if I had anything to offer..?
"At exactly the same time, Chris Chibnall emailed me, saying we need the Doctor more than ever these days, and could I think of any material? By some miracle this file still existed. (sic)"
