Past companions to return for 50th anniversary?
Some of the Doctor’s former companions are being lined up to return as part of the series’ 50th anniversary, according to a new report that has surfaced this week.
The Express claims (spoilers in the article) that Billie Piper, Karen Gillan and Carole Ann Ford will all return during the show’s landmark year. Producers are planning to celebrate it in “spectacular fashion”, with David Tennant also on the rumour list to be making a cameo. “They are going to pull out all the stops,” a source said.
They added: “There will be nods to the show’s history. Old faces are likely to reppear…”
There is naturally a TARDIS load of speculation surrounding the 50th anniversary – Matt Smith recently said it will “honour” the series’ past and Steven Moffat’s confirmed it will “build for the future” too. A drama exploring Who’s origin will kick off the festivities.
