Since the news that David Tennant is returning for Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary was released on Saturday, the web has come close to meltdown with excitement and speculation.
Just how will the Tenth Doctor be included? Photos of Tennant with Matt Smith suggest that the pair will interact, but just when in the Tenth Doctor’s adventures will this occur? Well, photos taken on location yesterday and featured in The Mirror today might just give things away…
Many fans have speculated that the combination of David Tennant and Billie Piper’s casting suggests that the pair will be seen together, perhaps with the half-human Pete’s World version of the Doctor making an appearance rather than the actual Time Lord. However…
The photos snapped on location reveal David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor, a Zygon and Joanna Page dressed in an outfit and wig that suggest she is playing Queen Elizabeth I.
Fans of the Tenth Doctor will know that he has encountered the Virgin Queen twice before, once on-screen in The Shakespeare Code and again off-screen in The End of Time, Part One – a story in which he was pretty morose at the prospect of his impending regeneration.
Could the Tenth Doctor have been taken out of time during this off-screen meeting with a much younger and attractive Queen Elizabeth I?
And if so, does that pave the way for Rose Tyler to be accompanied by another Doctor…?
Interesting, isn’t it?
