Posted on 01/23/2022 12:02:13 PM PST by mylife
According to rumours, David Tennant, who played the Tenth Doctor between 2005 and 2010, has been cast as the next Doctor.
And if the circulating rumours are to be believed it would make the Scottish actor the first and only actor to play two incarnations of the Timelord.
The tip off was spotted on a Facebook fan page, in which a user suggested a credible BBC source had leaked the information.
The user claims this source is the same person who leaked the casting of Sacha Dhawan as the Doctor’s nemesis, The Master, in series 12.
The original source of the rumour suggests Tennant would be the Doctor for just three specials and then another actor would take over after.
Could this have any truth? As the frequently most popular voted Doctor, Tennant would certainly draw many fans back from a show that lost a substantial amount of viewers in recent years.
RTD is reassembling some of his old team so would it be so odd for him to bring back his former leading man too? RTD’s first episode is also the 60th anniversary which would likely be bringing back past Doctors anyway, and we’d be very surprised if Tennant wasn’t one of them.
As for in-story reasons, we know it is possible for the Doctor to keep an appearance (he purposely kept the same face in “Journey’s End”), and the Curator also showed he will revisit some “old favourites” in “The Day of the Doctor”.
Then again, it could all be a load of old rubbish…
I agree ... nobody played The Doctor in a more frenzied and eccentric manner ...
too bad he did one and done :(
But David Tennant is great....great accent!
The original show was...sorry fans...garbage. However if it wasn’t for that we never would have gotten the wonderful run from 2005-2017 when Peter Capaldi left.
Bring back Celery Guy!
I’ve said the only ways to fix the chibnall disaster was to basically pull a Newheart show ending.
Have Capaldi wake up mid regeneration and entire fiasco of Chibnall era was just a dream.. before finishing regeneration….
Not sure what Davies has in mind but the entire Chibnall era needs thrown away. Every ounce of it…
Christoper said he had disagreements with several higher ups on he show/network so he won’t be back ever (videos of that online).
Just heard Russell T. Davies is coming back as showrunner for the 60th anniversary, so him bringing back David wouldn’t be as hard as another showrunner doing it. That said, I don’t like the idea of a past Doctor playing a future Doctor. My 2 cents.
I haven’t watched Dr. Who since they brought in the female doctors. I will watch the Tennant specials but I think they have another woman scheduled as the doctor to take over after Jodie Whittaker.
They seem to be intent on destroying their brand.
has a dr ever regenerated in his former body?
Also, he has a few months to resolve the "pasty white skin" problem ...
i liked john pertwee.
yeah, me too
They could use the deep fake tech to have Bobby Ewing be in the shower with the Tardis having just materialized in the room.
If I hadn’t had that napkin in hand you’d owe me a new screen.
Grabbing at straws to curtail go woke, go broke, methinks.......
