We don’t know what sort of plot twist or mechanism will carry the Time Lord and Noble again collectively. Russell T. Davies, who served as Physician Who’s showrunner through the Tenth Physician’s run, may also reprise his position for the present’s upcoming installment. Davies doesn’t give us any specifics on how the 2 will reunite, however as an alternative provides a slew of prospects:
They’re again! And it seems unattainable — first, we announce a brand new Physician, after which an previous Physician, together with the fantastic Donna, what on earth is going on? Possibly this can be a lacking story. Or a parallel world. Or a dream, or a trick, or a flashback. The one factor I can affirm is that it’s going to be spectacular, as two of our best stars reunite for the battle of a lifetime.
Earlier this month, the BBC introduced that Ncuti Gatwa will play Physician Who’s Fourteenth Physician, changing Jodie Whittaker. Gatwa is ready to make his debut on the sequence later this 12 months in accordance with the BBC’s one hundredth anniversary. We’ll have to attend and see what sort of position he’ll play within the episode with Tennant’s return.
