This is no April Fools’ Day joke: Erstwhile 10th Doctor David Tennant and his former companion, Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) are definitely returning to DOCTOR WHO to appear in the 50th Anniversary story, which begins filming this week! So there will be at least two Doctors in the special tale airing Nov. 23!
By way of proof, the BBC released this photo taken shortly after the first table read of the script, depicting Tennant and current Doctor Matt Smith looking happy as clams with personalized scripts in hand. (Can anyone read the story title?)
Now, just because the BBC has only confirmed Tennant’s participation does not mean other Doctors are out of the picture; they may just be out of the picture — meaning just off to the side of this photograph. And if each incarnation of the Doctor gets a signature companion?
Suddenly, things are looking up for the Doctor’s 50th!
