David Tennant will be back as the Tenth Doctor for the Doctor Who movie, according to a report in My Park Magazine.
According to the website, the actor will be reprising the role of the Time Lord for the big screen adventure even though he’s leaving the show at the end of the year.
“The script is still in the early stages but he wants to be in the film,” a BBC Films source has been quoted as saying. “There have already been discussions and David needs to feel the story is right, but right now things are looking very positive.
“Potentially it’s a perfect scenario for him. He understandably wants to do different roles but still loves Doctor Who.”
Earlier this week, the BBC confirmed a Doctor Who film was in its very early stages of development, and since then, the rumours have been rife about who will be playing the Doctor if it gets the green light.
The source added: “It’s certainly feasible that David could be the Doctor on film while Matt does the series. As all fans know David’s story can easily be set in a different time to Matt’s. That’s one of the great things about the show - anything can happen.
