Jemma Redgrave joins the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary cast

Jemma Redgrave is returning to Doctor Who for the 50th Anniversary. She'll be reprising the role of Kate Stewart - the daughter of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, played by the late Nicholas Courtney. Redgrave previously appeared in last year's The Power of Three.

Redgrave bolsters the roster of returning cast which also includes David Tennant, Billie Piper and Alex Kingston and new guest stars John Hurt and Joanna Page. We know the Zygons will be making an on-screen appearance, the first since 1975 (although they were most recently referenced in the previously mentioned Power of Three).

Rumours over the last few days seem to rule out the return of Christopher Eccleston, who having met with show runner Stephen Moffat decided not to take part in the celebratory episode.

The long-running BBC TV science fiction series that started in 1963 and recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary. 2017 saw Peter Capaldi regenerate into the show's first female Doctor played by Jodie Whittaker. The Thirteenth Doctor's first season debuts in 2018, with Chris Chibnall replacing Steven Moffat as the current showrunner.
