Gabriel Woolf is returning to Doctor Who

The seasoned actor Gabriel Woolf, known to many as Sutekh from 'Doctor Who', is preparing for an astonishing comeback. Nearly five decades have passed since his last appearance on the iconic sci-fi series. Famed for his portrayal of Sutekh, Gabriel is slated to reprise his role in an upcoming episode titled 'Tales of the TARDIS: Pyramids of Mars'.

Expressing how it feels to step back into the role, Gabriel shared: "It felt sort of inevitable in a way" and continued with "I'd never lost Sutekh because of the fans. They've kept him alive, organised conventions all over the place, so it feels kind of natural."

The prodigal episode from 1975, featuring eminent actors Tom Baker and Elisabeth Sladen, has undergone a restoration process. Gabriel enthusiastically explained: "It's excellent - they will have the complete backstory of Sutekh so they will know how it all began. Tom and I play off each other and it was dramatic, it was a bit like a play."

Expressing hope about the impact of the remastered episode, he added, "I hope it gives a tremendous added dimension to the excitement for the finale - the fact it's spread out over cinemas and across the world is wonderful."

Joining in Gabriel's enthusiasm, the show's executive producer Phil Collinson declared, "Revisiting the rich history of 'Doctor Who' is endlessly thrilling and this is no exception. It's so exciting to bring back 'Tales of the TARDIS' again, and to revisit a classic enemy of the Doctor."

"Gabriel Woolf as Sutekh, returning to terrify a whole new generation of children in a blistering season finale is what makes this show so special and appeal to so many across the generations."

'Tales of the TARDIS: Pyramids of Mars' will feature appearances from Ncuti Gatwa and Millie Gibson.

Look out for this episode on BBC Four and BBC iPlayer, set to go live on June 20.
