To celebrate an impressive 60th anniversary of Doctor Who, the BBC is airing a three-part mini series starring David Tennant. The actor has returned to the show, but not as the tenth Doctor. Instead, he is the fourteenth incarnation of the Time Lord. That’s not the only comeback, as Catherine Tate has returned as fan favourite companion Donna Noble to team up with the Doctor in more timey-wimey shenanigans.
The new adventures of the regenerated Time Lord are created by Russell T Davies, beloved showrunner of the earlier seasons of new Who. If you want to know when to tune into the next instalment, then we have you covered.
