Who can say what kind of vibe is going on here? Russell T. Davies is not going to be the new showrunner. Davies pondered theatrically, "But who, why, what is he playing?" You will have to be patient. The stuff we are shooting is off the charts. The doctor is warned.

Harris reprises his role as the 10th Doctor and Donna Noble in the 60th anniversary special of Doctor Who. Harris and other new-to-Who stars are playing mysterious characters named Rose. Who knows, maybe that Rose, maybe another Rose, but once again.

Doctor Who will celebrate its 60th anniversary on November 23, 2023. Jodie Whittaker will return as the Doctor for her final battle with the Master later this year.
