Doctor Who's 60th anniversary will see an iconic duo return to the Tardis

Doctor Who fans might just want to tune in for the show's 60th anniversary next year, as one of the Time Lord's most fondly remembered actors is set to reprise his role for the anniversary, airing in 2023.

Slash Film reports that David Tennant, the tenth Doctor, will be returning to the role for what's likely to be a special episode for Doctor Who's 60th anniversary. He's also joined by Catherine Tate, who played assistant Donna Noble during Tennant's tenure in the Tardis.

The news comes shortly after the announcement of Ncuti Gatwa stepping into the Doctor's shoes as their fourteenth incarnation, with current star Jodie Whittaker passing the baton next year.

"They're back!" wrote showrunner Russell T. Davies in a post on the BBC Media Centre. "And it looks impossible - first, 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 is no stranger to the Doctor Who franchise, having previously run the show while Tennant and Christopher Eccleston played the iconic sci-fi character.

That's a lot of Doctors

Just how prominent Tennant and Tate's return to the series has yet to be revealed, and we don't know if the iconic pair will majorly feature in a 60th anniversary episode, or if they'll simply be relegated to a cameo appearance.

However, Davies' wording has us thinking it'll be a bit more involving than that. Hinting at "the battle of a lifetime" seems to suggest that whatever's being planned for Doctor Who's 60th anniversary will be no small endeavor.

We wonder if any form of multiverse shenanigans will be afoot here, as it's not like the concept is wholly foreign to Doctor Who. In 2013, a special episode titled The Day of the Doctor aired to celebrate the shows' then 50th anniversary, and saw Doctors Matt Smith and David Tennant team up.

Perhaps the show's 60th anniversary will be along the same lines, then, albeit in a more ambitious capacity. We certainly wouldn't mind seeing the multiverse concept applied once again to Doctor Who, perhaps with an even greater number of prior Doctors alongside contemporary actors like Gatwa, Whittaker and possibly even Peter Capaldi, who played the character's twelfth incarnation.

In any case, we're now fairly excited to see what Doctor Who's 60th anniversary has in store. It's always a treat to see Tennant in the role, and an ambitious special might just be what the show needs after the divisive run of recent seasons.

How to get the Microsoft experience on a Chromebook

Microsoft's dedication to Android translates to a great Chrome OS experience, too. Once upon a time, to get the best experience for Microsoft services, you needed to buy a Windows laptop . If you were on a budget laptop with lower specs, though, performance was slow, all tasks were tedious, and your productivity suffered. These days, though, the best Chromebooks offer excellent performance and less maintenance at lower price points.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Follow these steps to connect a Pro Controller to your Android phone

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature .
