DOCTOR WHO: 10th Doctor David Tennant And Companion Catherine Tate To Return For 60th Anniversary Show
Some pretty major news for Doctor Who fans here, as it's been announced that the 10th Doctor (David Tennant) and his companion Donna Noble (Catherine Tate) will be back for the 60th Anniversary show.
In news that's sure to make Doctor Who fans very happy, it's been announced that one of the most popular actors to play the iconic Time Lord, David Tennant, is set to reprise his role for the British sci-fi show's upcoming 60th Anniversary Special - and he won't be alone!
The BBC has announced that Tennant and Catherine Tate, who played his loyal companion Donna Noble, will return for the currently shooting special, which will air at some point next year. This comes on the heels of the news that current Doctor Jodie Whittaker will be replaced by Ncuti Gatwa in an upcoming episode.
Last time we saw this duo on screen together, The Doctor was forced to wipe Donna's memory in order to save her life. We're not sure how they'll be reintroduced, and showrunner Russell T. Davis wasn't giving much away!
“They're back! And it looks impossible - first, we announce a new Doctor, and then an old Doctor, along with the wonderful Donna, what on earth is happening? Maybe this is a missing story. Or a parallel world. Or a dream, or a trick, or a flashback. The only thing I can confirm is that it’s going to be spectacular, as two of our greatest stars reunite for the battle of a lifetime," Davies said in a statement.
Davies is returning to take charge of Doctor Who for its 60th anniversary in 2023. Whittaker's send-off is set to begin in "Legend of the Sea Devils," on April 17, which will be followed by two more specials (no release dates have been announced)
