David Tennant Back For Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary?

We don’t know just how they’d pull it off, but Bleeding Cool has heard from a solid source that David Tennant will be returning to Doctor Who.

Word of Tennant’s involvement was passed along to us this evening. Here’s what we have been told, word for word:

Yes. David Tennant will be back in time for the Doctor Who anniversary. Be prepared to be surprised…

Too late for preparation, I’m afraid, because I’m rather surprised already.

It somehow doesn’t seen very Moffat-y to me. I really thought he was trying to draw a line between his era as show runner and everything that came before. I guess there might be space for Tennant and, if he’d only play along, Christopher Eccleston, seeing as Moffat has written for both before.

It’s worth noting that we have also asked our Who-adjacent friends about John Simm returning as The Master. That’s another persistent rumour that pops up in our inbox every now and then, alongside the Tennant one, but unless somebody we know to have some kind of vantage point on the issue can comment, we’ll have to just keep shrugging. Would be nice though, right?

Hearsay has told me that there will be two anniversary specials for the show, though this is far from confirmed and it may yet turn out to be several, or just one. Moffat has apparently been laying the groundwork for the anniversary storyline for some time. I can’t help but hope it’s going to be very special.
