David Tennant and Catherine Tate to appear live at the BFI’s Doctor Who at 50

Tennant will be joined on stage in London by his friend and former co-star, aka Donna Noble

RadioTimes.com can announce the impressive line-up for the next event in the British Film Institute’s Doctor Who at 50 season.


On Sunday 29 September, David Tennant will be joined live on stage in London by his friend and former co-star Catherine Tate, when the BFI screens The Stolen Earth and Journey’s End, the stunning two-part season finale from 2008 featuring Davros and the Daleks.

The hugely popular Tennant has of course just reprised the role of the tenth Doctor for the forthcoming 50th anniversary special (BBC1 November). Catherine Tate played the fabulously gobby Donna Noble in many episodes between 2006 and 2010.

The other guests are:

Graeme Harper, who directed The Stolen Earth and Journey’s End, as well as many other classics reaching right back to Peter Davison’s era in the 1980s.

Phil Collinson, who produced more than 50 episodes between 2005 and 2008. He’s returning to the BFI after being such an entertaining guest at last month’s event for ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston. That panel can be watched on the BFI YouTube site.

Andy Pryor, the highly respected casting director, who (I think I’m right in saying) is one of the very few people to have worked on every single episode of Doctor Who since its return in 2005.

The BFI’s Justin Johnson also confides to RT that there’s a slim chance of one other top guest on the day.
