Doctor Who unites Jodie Whittaker and David Tennant for new spin-off adventure The Edge of Reality

DOCTOR Who favourites Jodie Whittaker and David Tennant are starring in a new spin-off.

The Thirteenth and Tenth Doctors are joining forces for a brand new adventure – but this time on computer consoles.

The pair will have guest appearances in a brand new video game adventure, Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality, which will be released in spring 2021.

Digital entertainment studio Maze Theory has joined together with the BBC to create a new first-person adventure.

Within in the game, there are fresh monsters to fight, different worlds to discover and puzzles to be solved.

Also along the way will be classic Doctor Who enemies including the Daleks, the Cybermen, the Weeping Angels and others.

The game is set to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Steam next year.

Tennant has just been voted the best Doctor Who ever.

But he only narrowly beat current Doctor Jodie Whittaker by 95 votes in the survey of 50,000 fans.

David, 49, took on the iconic role from 2005 to 2010, and helped make the reboot of the show one of the Beeb’s biggest Saturday night hits.

Huw Fullerton, Sci-Fi and Fantasy Editor, RadioTimes.com said: “Over a decade after he left the TARDIS behind and after nearly 50,0000 votes were cast, it’s clear David Tennant is still Doctor Who fans’ perfect 10!”

“But with Jodie Whittaker hot on his heels and a great showing for other recent Doctors like Peter Capaldi, it looks like fans also hold other Time Lords close to their heart(s).”

Tennant will also return to the role of The Doctor for an audio drama.

It will consist of nine hour-long episodes in the era before the last great Time War.

As the name would suggest, the dastardly Daleks will be The Doctor's main opponent, but he'll also face off against Davros, the Mechonoids and the Movellans.

Tennant told Radio Times that he was thrilled to be returning to the franchise.

"It’s a big old epic sweep. It reminds me a little bit of those Flash Gordon serials that used to be on the TV during the school holidays when I was a kid," he said.
