This year marks the 10th anniversary of David Tennant‘s final run as the Tenth Doctor in Doctor Who, celebrating his last appearance in the regular season, starring in “The End of Time.” He did pop up again in the 50th anniversary special (but, that’s not part of the tally).
And, can we expect to see him again in any future anniversary specials? Tennant steps in to answer that question.
When sitting down with BBC, he says, “People ask me this like it’s in my gift, like it’s my decision when I’ll just stroll back out on set and go, ‘Right. Turn Over. Here I am.’ It doesn’t really work like that.”
Okay, we get that it’s not all that easy, but how does it work, David? He elaborates in the below clip:
While the decision may not solely be up to him, he does say near the end of the clip, “It would be fun to do. Jodi (Whittaker) and Peter (Capaldi) and Matt (Smith) are all mates now. It’d be wonderful to be on set with them.”
He worked with DW showrunner Chris Chibnall on Broadchurch, so they already have that in common.
His final say on the topic, goes: “I don’t know. Listen, it’s not for me to say. The more I speculate, the more I’ll end up getting myself in trouble.”
On that note, we shall move on, too… circling back to how all this came up: BBC Studios and Fathom Events are bringing Tennant’s final episode, “The End of Time” to U.S. theaters on Wednesday, August 7 (for one night only).
