David Tennant and Catherine Tate are returning to Doctor Who in 2023

David Tennant and Catherine Tate are returning to Doctor Who, the BBC has announced.

Scottish actor Tennant, 51, first entered the Tardis in 2005 to play the 10th Time Lord, with his final episode airing on New Year’s Day 2010, with comedic actress Tate, 52, starring as companion Donna Noble.

The duo have reunited to film scenes set to air next year to coincide with the celebrations of the popular TV series’ 60th anniversary.

Returning Doctor Who showrunner Russell T. Davies said: “They’re back! And it looks impossible – first we’re announcing a new Doctor and then an old Doctor, along with the wonderful Donna, what on earth is happening?

“Maybe that’s a missing story. Or a parallel world. Or a dream, or a trick, or a flashback.

“The only thing I can confirm is that when two of our biggest stars reunite for the fight of their lives, it’s going to be spectacular.”

Tennant took over the lead role from Christopher Eccleston in 2005 and was succeeded by Matt Smith, while Billie Piper’s supporting role was the first in the 2005 revival of the program, followed by Tate as Donna.

The opinionated Donna helped save civilization from the Daleks during her spell on the 10th Doctor, but her memories of her adventures in the Tardis were erased as the powers bestowed on her by the Time Lord threatened to overwhelm her brain.

Tennant was also featured in the 2013 50th Anniversary special, The Day Of The Doctor.

It was recently announced that Sex Education star Ncuti Gatwa was being succeeded by Jodie Whittaker to become the show’s 14th Doctor.

The 29-year-old is the fourth Scot to take up the post, after Sylvester McCoy, Tennant, a graduate of the Royal Conservatoire, and Peter Capaldi.

Showrunner Chris Chibnall, who cast Whittaker as the first doctor, is leaving the show to be replaced by Davies, who was behind the program’s revival in 2005 and retired in 2009.

Tennant and Tate’s collaboration extends beyond Doctor Who. They collaborated on a stage version of Much Ado About Nothing in 2011, with Tennant also appearing on Tate’s sketch show The Catherine Tate Show.

A synopsis teasing the return of Doctor Who mentioned Donna’s memory wipe to save her life, adding that the Doctor “had left her family with a warning: if she ever remembers, she will die.” .

It adds, “But since the two face each other again, the big question is what will bring the Doctor and Donna back together?”.
