David Tennant, the tenth Doctor Who, returns to the franchise in a new trailer alongside Catherine Tate, who plays Donna Noble, the Time Lord’s longtime ally.
David Tennant reprises the role in ‘Doctor Who’:
David Tennant and Catherine Tate reprized their roles for a series of three specials to celebrate the show’s 60th anniversary, which would also make Tennant the 14th Doctor. He takes over from 13th Doctor Jodie Whittaker.
The titles of the three special programs that will air in November have also been unveiled. They are “The Star Beast,” “Wild Blue Yonder” and “The Giggle.”
The trailer also stars “Heartstoppers” Yasmin Finney and “How I Met Your Mother’s” Neil Patrick Harris, who are joining the franchise.

Showrunner Russell T Davies said: “The titles are just the beginning of the Doctor’s biggest adventure yet. Autumn is coming, with three hours of danger, Donna and disaster to come!”
Meanwhile, Ncuti Gatwa is set to take over as the 15th Doctor, with his series coming to an end at the end of the year. He will be joined by Millie Gibson as Ruby Sunday. Production is already underway and the BBC has released a glimpse of the two dressed in ’60s outfits.
“If you thought David Tennant’s appearance was a shock, we’ve got plenty more surprises along the way. Ncuti’s path to the 15th Doctor is filled with mystery, horror, robots, puppetry, danger and fun,” Davis said last year. “We’re giving you one year to guess, and then all hell breaks loose.”
New “Doctor Who” specials and upcoming series will premiere on BBC in the UK and Ireland. They will be available internationally on Disney+ following a deal struck between the two media superpowers last year.
