It is currently unknown if the two actors will join Ncuti on screen but Russell T Davies told fans: “They’re back!
“And it looks impossible – first, we announce a new Doctor, and then an old Doctor, along with the wonderful Donna, what on earth is happening?
He added: “Maybe this is a missing story. Or a parallel world. Or a dream, or a trick, or a flashback.
“The only thing I can confirm is that it’s going to be spectacular, as two of our greatest stars reunite for the battle of a lifetime.”
David and Cartherine’s 2008 series of Doctor Who had an average audience of more than eight million viewers per episode and was nominated for best drama at that year’s Bafta TV Awards.
David’s Doctor split from Catherine’s Donna when he had to wipe her memory to save her life.
He warned her family: if ever she remembers, she will die.
Now fans are left. to wonder what circumstances will bring them back together.
