David Tennant and Catherine Tate will return to Doctor Who in celebration of the long-running present’s 60th anniversary, the BBC has announced (by way of Gizmodo). The pair are presently filming scenes which are set to air in 2023.
Tennant starred as Doctor Who’s Tenth Doctor from 2005 to 2010, whereas Tate performed The Doctor’s companion, Donna Noble. The fan-favorite Doctor has made a reappearance up to now, with the BBC bringing back Tennant and Billie Piper (Rose Tyler) for Doctor Who’s fiftieth anniversary particular in 2013, referred to as “The Day of the Doctor.” But now, Tennant is about to make yet one more return an entire decade later.
We don’t know what sort of plot twist or mechanism will carry the Time Lord and Noble again collectively. Russell T. Davies, who served as Doctor Who’s showrunner in the course of the Tenth Doctor’s run, can even reprise his function for the present’s upcoming installment. Davies doesn’t give us any specifics on how the 2 will reunite, however as an alternative affords a slew of prospects:
They’re again! And it seems unimaginable — first, we announce a brand new Doctor, and then an outdated Doctor, together with the great Donna, what on earth is going on? Maybe it is a lacking story. Or a parallel world. Or a dream, or a trick, or a flashback. The solely factor I can verify is that it’s going to be spectacular, as two of our biggest stars reunite for the battle of a lifetime.
Earlier this month, the BBC introduced that Ncuti Gatwa will play Doctor Who’s Fourteenth Doctor, changing Jodie Whittaker. Gatwa is about to make his debut on the sequence later this yr in accordance with the BBC’s one hundredth anniversary. We’ll have to wait and see what sort of function he’ll play within the episode with Tennant’s return.
