David Tennant and Catherine Tate are Returning to Doctor Who!

What a crazy stretch this has been for Doctor Who fans.  First, we get the news that Ncuti Gatwa will be the new Doctor, which is exciting all by itself.

However, it appears that Gatwa will not be the next Doctor, because the BBC just confirmed that David Tennant and Catherine Tate are returning to Doctor Who to celebrate the show's 60th anniversary in 2023.  To that, we say  -


This reunion of the 10th Doctor and Donna Noble has been rumored for a while, and it turns out the Internet got this one right.  Of course, the details are limited at this point.  All returning showrunner Russell T. Davies would say was, "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."

No matter how we get there, we're sure the result will be great.  RTD, Tennant, and Tate are a magical combination, and whatever they have in store for the show's fans will undoubtedly be terrific.

Now, how do you think this plays out?  Where will this story fit in the grand scheme of things?  The last time the Doctor saw Donna, he wiped her memories of him and said she'd die if they were restored.  Does this adventure happen before then?  Will it just be the one episode?  Do you think we'll see the delightful Bernard Cribbins return as Wilfred Mott?  Even a brief sighting would be a treat.  Also, what happens to Jodie Whittaker at the end of her final episode to lead to this diversion?  Will we get at least a glimpse of Gatwa, or will we have to wait until the end of the anniversary special for our first look at the 14th Doctor? 

In the meantime, maybe we should catch up on the Big Finish Doctor - Donna audio adventures!
