David Tennant and Catherine Tate will return to Physician Who in celebration of the long-running present’s sixtieth anniversary, the BBC has introduced (through Gizmodo). The pair are at present filming scenes which might be set to air in 2023.
Tennant starred as Physician Who’s Tenth Physician from 2005 to 2010, whereas Tate performed The Physician’s companion, Donna Noble. The fan-favorite Physician has made a reappearance up to now, with the BBC bringing again Tennant and Billie Piper (Rose Tyler) for Physician Who’s fiftieth anniversary particular in 2013, referred to as “The Day of the Physician.” However now, Tennant is about to make 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 Physician Who’s showrunner throughout the Tenth Physician’s run, may also reprise his position 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 potentialities:
They’re again! And it seems to be unattainable — first, we announce a brand new Physician, after which an outdated Physician, together with the great Donna, what on earth is occurring? Perhaps it is a lacking story. Or a parallel world. Or a dream, or a trick, or a flashback. The one factor I can affirm 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 Physician Who’s Fourteenth Physician, changing Jodie Whittaker. Gatwa is about to make his debut on the sequence later this yr in accordance with the BBC’s a hundredth anniversary. We’ll have to attend and see what sort of position he’ll play within the episode with Tennant’s return.
