If there’s one thing that Doctor Who leaves the door open to, it’s returning Doctors.

It’s in the small print – may have regenerated ten years ago, can still come back at any time – it’s one of the show’s delights.

And now, unsurprisingly, the tenth and eleventh Doctors, David Tennant and Matt Smith, have expressed a desire to return to the show.

Speaking at Wizard World, the duo were asked if they would consider cimbing into the TARDIS again and the answer was a resounding ‘yes’: “I really want to… But then Peter [Capaldi] would be like, ‘Hey -it’s mine!’,” said Smith.

Apparently Smith had an idea for a whole series based around the two Doctors returning for six episodes each: “In this universe, anyone can come back… I don’t think you could ever go back to it full-time, but there’s almost a built-in invitation to go back.”

The duo have of course played the Doctor together on screen already in the 2013 50th anniversary special,The Day of the Doctor, so the idea isn’t totally unimaginable, especially for two as popular as them.

“All things are possible,” the duo concluded when asked if they’d come back for new showrunner Chris Chibnall.

This all comes at a time when Paul McGann – the Eighth Doctor – has said he feels his story in the role is not over yet either.

We would love a big, multi-Doctor story arc in the series, something big and bold, heck, we reckon Christopher Eccleston would return too, so come on BBC, make it happen!

For Gallifrey!
