The BBC has confirmed the return of David Tennant and Billie Piper for the 50th anniversary celebration of Doctor Who. According to the network, Tennant and Piper will join the current Doctor, Matt Smith, and Jenna-Louise Coleman as part of the all-star cast marking the important anniversary. The new series started its run on March 30, 2013 with Coleman introduced as the Doctor’s new companion, Clara Oswald.
John Hurt is also confirmed to co-star as part of the 3D anniversary special.
The anniversary will be the first time Tennant has reprised his role as the tenth Doctor since leaving the show on January 1, 2010. For those not up on their Doctor Who (or who need a refresher), audiences first learned that Tennant was the Time Lord on the 2005 series finale, “The Parting of the Ways.”
Piper played Rose Tyler for two series and will be back on the show for the first time since “The End of Time” in 2010.
The 50th anniversary special was written by Steven Moffat and will be directed by Nick Hurran. Filming is set to start this week.
