'David Tennant and Billie Piper will appear in the 50th anniversary special of Doctor Who, the BBC has confirmed.
Tennant was the 10th Doctor and Piper played his on-screen companion Rose Tyler in the BBC One show.
Filming on the show, which will also star John Hurt, will start next week.
Tennant's successor, Matt Smith - also in the special with his new assistant played by Jenna-Louise Coleman - says fans "will not be disappointed" by the 3D show, due to air on 23 November.'

He’d be a great doctor, I think they’d probably go for someone else though. A recent poll in the UK found ‘Sherlock’ star Benedict Cumberbatch to be the public favourite to be the next.
I really like Matt Smith in the the role. I liked Tennant too but Smith plays a perfectly erratic character. I’m watching an old episode now when he’s returned to visit Craig and “Stormageddon” the baby.
I’m so behind on this show, I dont even remember who the Doctor is right now.
I’m somewhere way back there with Rose and Martha Jones. Better fire up the Netflix.
I really liked him myself. They did a sort of similar thing with Romana II in the classic series.
Unfortunately I don’t think its possible for Amy Pond to return since she and Rory died in the 1930s.
BC would be PERFECT! But I doubt the show’s budget could afford him. Plus I read he still intends to do Sherlock even after Star Trek II. Both Cumberbatch and Morrisey have such a broad range of acting skills (good guy to villain), either one would make the 12th Doctor (potentially the Valeyard) an incredible character.
I still wish they would bring Paul McGann back for a special. His work on Big Finish as the 8th Doctor is incredible. I mean, really incredible.
He was fantastic in all his cheeky, bombastic, scene-chewing glory!
I've heard that he was there choice before Tennant, which was the reason Tennant commented to Rose, "I'm never ginger. I wanted to be a ginger." Smith also checked his hair and made a ginger comment.
Ack! You needed to give me a SPOILER ALERT!!!
I haven’t got up to that episode, yet!
Nuffin wrong wit' doze teeth
I still think Peri is hotter than the new ones. I like the nu who, but the “90210” stuff bothers me.
It was more like the 1980s.
And for that matter Clara Oswin Oswald died in the 1890s
