Prior to next week’s big Special, David Tennant returns to Doctor Who in the BBC Children In Need 2023 promo episode.
The short “The Fourteenth Doctor is Here!” continues from the 13th Doctor, Jodie Whittaker’s transformation back into the Tennant Doctor Who from her last episode.
“Where has the Doctor landed? And what’s up with that Dalek?…” teases the BBC on social media. “The Doctor accidentally lands the TARDIS at a pivotal moment in the creation of his deadliest enemies.”

When does Doctor Who return?
Doctor Who and David Tennant return on November 25 with “The Star Beast,” followed by “Wild Blue Yonder” on Dec. 2, and “The Giggle” on Dec. 9.
The three specials also feature Catherine Tate back as Donna Noble, with Neil Patrick Harris as the villain, the Toymaker, the all-powerful enemy last seen in 1966.
Ncuti Gatwa’s first episode as the Fifteenth Doctor will then air over the festive period.
Russell T Davies returns as showrunner. Doctor Who will premiere exclusively on the BBC for the UK and Ireland. Disney+ will be the exclusive home for new seasons of Doctor Who outside of the UK and Ireland.
