The 10th Doctor and his companion, Donna Noble, are filming scenes that are due to air in 2023 to coincide with the show’s 60th anniversary celebrations, the broadcaster said in a statement Sunday.
The announcement comes a week after

Showrunner Russell T. Davies said in the statement: “They’re back! And it looks impossible — eerste, we announce a new Doctor, and then an old Doctor, along with the wonderful Donna, what on earth is happening?
“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.”
Davies also announced the pair’s return on his Instagram-rekening
. The 10th Doctor parted ways with Donna after wiping her memory in order to save her life
. He warned her family that she will die if she remembers
In what was then expected to be his final appearance on the show in 2010, a distraught 10th Doctor said: “I don’t want to go.” It seems his wish is about to come true.
