UNIT character to return to Doctor Who: Flux

Following the shocking ending of Village of the Angels, the preview trailer for fifth episode has revealed a returning fan favourite character.


In the Next Time trailer for Doctor Who: Flux’s upcoming fifth episode, Survivors of the Flux, UNIT boss Kate Lethbridge-Stewart (Jemma Redgrave) makes a surprise appearance.

In the first look trailer it seems she will be facing off with Craig Parkinson’s corrupt Grand Serpent.


The daughter of the classic series’ fan-favourite Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart (Nicholas Courtney), Redgrave’s character has appeared in Doctor Who several times in recent years, beginning in the era of Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor and continuing through the 2013 anniversary special and four episodes starring Peter Capaldi’s Doctor.

Now, after six years off-screen it looks like Kate is back!

Since 2015, she has also appeared as Kate Stewart as the lead in numerous UNIT audio adventures for Big Finish Productions, working alongside actors such as Ingrid Oliver, Ramon Tikaram, Derek Jacobi and Alex Kingston


Chapter Five: Survivors of the Flux will air 28/11/2021 on BBC One.

As the forces of evil mass, the Doctor, Yaz and Dan face perilous journeys and seemingly insurmountable obstacles in their quest for survival.
