Doctor Who: Old Villains And Heroes Return!

By April 3, 2013

Just days after the BBC announced the return of David Tennant (Tenth Doctor) and Billie Piper (Rose Tyler) to Doctor Who, the internet is abuzz with fiftieth anniversary photos and news!

David Tennant, Jenna-Louise Coleman, Matt Smith, and guest star Joanna Page were photographed at a recent read-through. Merlin actor John Hurt will also be featured in the episode; the specifics of his role have yet to be revealed.

There is still no word on whether any other past Doctors or companions will be part of the anniversary special, although John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness) recently announced that he would not be involved.

An old villain, however, will return. The Zygons, a shape-shifting race first featured in the 1975 serial “Terror of the Zygons,” have only appeared in references and flashbacks since. Today, the BBC reported their involvement in the special, and tweeted a photo of a Zygon on set.
