The BBC have confirmed that the Judoon are returning to Doctor Who in the next series of the show.
The Thirteenth Doctor and her friends will encounter the mercenary police, who first made an appearance on the show over 12 years ago in Smith and Jones, when the Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones ended up on the Moon whilst the Judoon were hunting for a fugitive alien.
The upcoming episode, expected to broadcast next year, will bring the aliens to present-day Gloucester.
It will also star Neil Stuke, a BAFTA nominee who has previously been in Doctor Foster, Silk and Silent Witness.
Showrunner Chris Chibnall said:
“No! Sho! Blo! The Judoon are storming back into Doctor Who in full force, and the streets of Gloucester aren’t safe. If anyone has anything to hide, confess now. The Judoon are taking no prisoners, and will stop at nothing to fulfil their mission! The whole team on Doctor Who are delighted and scared in equal measure to welcome them back: one of many treats we’ve got in store for viewers next series. And we’re over the moon (with Judoon), to be welcoming the wondrous Neil Stuke as guest star. We can’t wait to show you what happens when his path crosses with the Thirteenth Doctor.”
