David Tennant And Billie Piper Will Return For Doctor Who’s 50th


doctor who bannerNo, this isn’t an early April Fool’s joke. David Tennant and Billie Piper (The 10th Doctor and Rose Tyler) have been officially confirmed as returning for Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary special. The BBC and Doctor Who Magazine have confirmed that the duo will be coming back to join current Doctor Matt Smith and new companion Jenna-Louise Coleman for this November’s TV event. DW Magazine will have a full article in the newest issue about the return, but the BBC confirmed it as scans of the magazine started making the rounds. You can check out a teaser of the article below. I don’t want to spoil the whole thing for you. If that wasn’t enough, it was also announced that legendary actor John Hurt will also be joining the 50th special. It’s Doctor Who, so it’s all very secretive and no details are known at this time.

David Tennant was last seen as The Doctor on New Year’s Day in 2010’s The End of Time where he regenerated into Matt Smith‘s incarnation. That was also the last time we saw Billie Piper as well, who made a brief appearance in The Doctor‘s goodbye tour when he visited all of his former companions. Now the thing to remember is just because David Tennant will be returning for the special doesn’t mean he will be the 10th Doctor proper. He did siphon off his regeneration energy into his spare hand, forming a new human/Time Lord hybrid thanks to the help of Donna Noble. The handy Doctor and Rose from the alternate universe may be appearing, then again it could be the actual 10th Doctor and his companion Rose. It’s just something to think about. What do you think though? Are you excited to hear Tennant and Piper are back?
