Fan favourites David Tennant and Billie Piper will reprise their roles as the tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler in the upcoming 50th anniversary Doctor Who special.
Amidst the excitement surrounding the mid-season premier of Doctor Who's 7th season earlier this week, some interesting information has surfaced about the British sci-fi's upcoming 50th anniversary special. David Tennant and Billie Piper, the tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler respectively, will reprise their roles alongside Matt Smith and newly-minted companion Jenna Louise Coleman. John Hurt (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Alien, Harry Potter) will also co-star.
Steven Moffat, the lead writer for the show, stated that the special will be shot in 3D, with frequent Who director Nick Hurran behind the helm. The special will feature the Zygons, a race of shape-shifting extraterrestrials. The Zygons were previously featured in the fourth Doctor episode, "Terror of the Zygons" - which presented the aliens as malevolent refugees bent on conquering Earth after a stellar explosion destroyed their home planet.
