TV fans have voted David Tennant's surprise appearance as the Fourteenth Doctor as TV Moment of the Year at the Edinburgh TV Awards yesterday. The ceremony takes place during the annual Edinburgh TV Festival, with the TV Moment of the Year prize being the only one voted for by members of the public.
Viewers were stunned at the climax of Jodie Whittaker's regeneration in the final episode of Doctor Who, The Power Of The Doctor, when her successor was revealed to be David Tennant. It has now been revealed that he will appear in three special 60th Anniversary episodes of Doctor Who later this year, before the role is picked up by Ncuti Gatwa, who will play the fifteenth incarnation of the Time Lord. David will be joined by former companions Catherine Tate, who will reprise her role as Donna Noble, and Bonnie Langford who returns as Melanie Bush. Also back are Jacqueline King as Sylvia Noble, Karl Collins as Shaun Temple and the late Bernard Cribbins as Wilfred Mott. New faces include Neil Patrick Harris as a mysterious foe, Yasmin Finney as Rose Temple-Noble and Miriam Margolyes as an as yet undisclosed character.
The 60th Anniversary trilogy of episodes are expected to premiere at the end of November.
