VIDEO The latest Doctor Who trailer brings David Tennant back: who is the new Doctor anyway

The new Doctor Who trailer, for the season to air in 2023, has revealed the return of David Tennant, as well as footage of the new lead character, played by Ncuti Gatwa.

It was already known that Gatwa would take over the role of the Doctor, immediately following Jodie Whittaker’s departure. Not long after, it was also announced that David Tennant and Catherine Tate would also be returning to Doctor Who for the 60th anniversary.

In a press release accompanying the new trailer for Doctor Who, T. Davies confirmed that Tennant plays the fourteenth incarnation of the Doctor, while Gatwa plays the fifteenth. Previously, it had been speculated that Tennant’s return would put him in a position to reprise his de facto role, especially given that Tate is also returning, alongside the actor.

As we can see from the trailer, Gatwa will appear in all three special episodes including the one, though it’s unclear whether he’s playing the Fifteenth Doctor, another role, or both.

The young actor appears in a “special” alongside the Fourteenth Doctor, played by David Tennant, and is also the next actor to become The Doctor, “fully documented”.

Obviously, there has been much speculation, regarding this sixtieth anniversary of the successful franchise. Among them was even the possibility that Doctor Who would tell its final story. Whether or not that will be the case remains to be seen.

Still, Ncuti Gatwa has a chance, for at least one season, to show off his craft. Big emotions, as far as he’s concerned, aren’t there – he previously starred in Sex Education as the likeable Eric Effiong, and it didn’t take long for the actor to capture the audience’s attention and love.

As for Jodie Whittaker, Doctor Who fans haven’t necessarily embraced the hypothesis of a female Doctor, refusing to give her a chance even before the episodes in which she can be seen playing her appeared.

Hopefully, at least in Gatwa’s case, things will turn out differently.
