Guess who's joining the 'Doctor Who' anniversary special?
With the 50th anniversary special of "Doctor Who" slated to begin filming next week, the BBC has confirmed two familiar faces who'll take part in the show.
And, as it turns out, the rumors were true: the 10th Doctor Who, David Tennant, will appear in the special along with Billie Piper, who played his companion, Rose Tyler.
Both actors will join the present Doctor Who, Matt Smith, and his new companion Clara, as portrayed by Jenna-Louise Coleman.
Smith believes that "Doctor Who" fans will be pleased with the resulting anniversary special, which is scheduled to bow on November 23 in 3-D.
It "manages to pay homage to everything, and look forward," Smith told the BBC. "I read it and I clapped at the end. I think it's hilarious, it's epic and it's vast."
