David Tennant appeared on the This Morning sofa today (Thursday 8th December) to talk about his new ITVX drama Litvinenko, and his return to Doctor Who.
David Tennant made his dramatic return as The Doctor at the end of The Power Of The Doctor in October, playing a new - but familiar - incarnation of The Doctor ahead of Ncuti Gatwa's arrival in the TARDIS late next year.
Tennant reprises the role for three specials to be broadcast in November 2023 alongside Catherine Tate as Donna and Bernard Cribbins as Wilf. Guest stars for the specials include Yasmin Finney and Neil Patrick Harris.
Speaking on ITV's This Morning to hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, Tennant teased: "It was like being handed a very lovely present. It was joyous. It was great fun. It was a very happy joyous time on set 15 years ago, and returning to that could've been - might've felt awkward, it might have felt difficult. I might not have been able to run as fast..."
"We had a lovely time. Russell T. Davies is back running the show, it felt like we'd never been away... That's all you're getting!"
The actor stars in new four-part ITVX drama Litvinenko, based on the true story of the police investigation into the poisoning of the former Russian spy, Alexander Litvinenko.
Doctor Who 60th Anniversary Specials air in November 2023, followed by a festive special in December and Series 14, expected in the the first half of 2024.
