It can’t be denied that David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor was a big hit with Doctor Who fans. As with most fandoms, when you like something or someone, you hate to see them go; such is the case for Tenth Doctor fans.
Tennant has frequently been linked to a return since his 2010 departure. Despite reprising the role in 2013’s anniversary special The Day of the Doctor and various audio dramas produced by Big Finish. However, many believe he will return as the Doctor in future adventures. It’s a bit like the second coming o
Tennant appeared at the German Comic-Con and addressed the rumours:
“I’ve been asked a version of this question for the last 20 years — [Laughs] — and I’ve learned through bitter experience that there’s not any point in even answering it because whatever I say is spun by whoever wants to hear it. So, there’s no point in me denying it, there’s no point in me confirming it, there’s no point in me fudging it. Whatever I say will become whatever the Internet wants it to be. I mean, it would be quite a weird idea, and it’s not something you’d necessarily expect from Doctor Who. So, I’m not going to try and give you more than that because what’s the point?”

David is right; of course, it would be weird for Doctor Who to cast him as the Doctor again, and I wouldn’t want to see him return as another incarnation of the Doctor. We already had two versions of him when the Meta Crisis Doctor went off with Rose Tyler.
But I wouldn’t rule out seeing him in the 60th-anniversary special. 2023 marks the 60 years of Doctor Who. What better way to celebrate than having a multi-Doctor episode? Whilst some fans clamour for a return of David Tennant, I’d love to see Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor again in the anniversary special.
