David Tennant floats in a mysterious set in a new image from the upcoming Doctor Who 60th anniversary specials.

Carrying a sonic screwdriver and an exasperated countenance, the Time Lord tinkers with some dubious switches in a brand new set.
David Tennant’s New Doctor Who Character Explained
When Tennant’s return to Doctor Who was first announced, it was assumed that he would be playing some reprised version of his Tenth Doctor character. Instead, BBC later made the announcement that Tennant would instead play a new reincarnation of the Time Lord, the Fourteenth Doctor. This meant that Doctor Who newcomer Time Lord Ncuti Gatwa will be playing the Fifteenth Doctor after Tennant’s second Doctor Who term, rather than the previously-assumed Fourteenth Doctor.
Even playing a different reincarnation, Tennant’s Fourteenth Doctor recalls some of his original Doctor Who sensibilities. This can be witnessed in this image in part through the costume, which, while updated, still features the actor’s signature Converse shoes. Tennant also still has his iconic Sonic Screwdriver in this most recent Doctor Who image. These similarities will be comforting to those missing Tennant’s original tenure on Doctor Who and viewers will get another chance to see Tennant in the classic role.
This Doctor Who image reveals little in the way of plot details for the upcoming Doctor Who specials. Nonetheless,Tennant’s befuddled look is characteristically expressive, showing that Tennant has not lost his Doctor Who charm. Doctor Who fans will not have to wait much longer to uncover the plot behind this expression as the Doctor Who 60th anniversary specials release next month.
