Doctor Who’s Tennant returns with Piper — GASP!

Doctor Who’s Tennant returns with Piper — GASP!

david-tennantDoctor Who fan favorites David Tennant and Billie Piper return for the science-fiction show’s fiftieth anniversary special.

The excitement launched just before part 2 of Doctor Who‘s seventh season premiered on Saturday. Tennant played the Tenth Doctor — that is, the tenth incarnation of the alien protagonist on BBC’s popular series. Last seen as the Doctor on Jan. 1, 2010, this will be the first time Tennant reprises his role. He played the Doctor from 2005 to 2010.

This will also be Piper’s first appearance on Doctor Who since Tennant’s last episode in 2010. She played the Doctor’s loyal companion and love interest, Rose Tyler, for two series since 2005.

Both Tennant and Piper were rumored to make a return for the anniversary special, but Piper denied the reports.  “I wasn’t asked, no,” she said on The Graham Norton Show. “I think Matt Smith may have said, in passing or in jest, it would be nice.”
