Doctor Who: David Tennant returns for anniversary showDavid Tennant and Billie Piper will appear in the 50th anniversary special of Doctor Who, the BBC has confirmed.
Richard E. Grant
Scream of the Shalka
Although Scream of the Shalka was intended to be an official continuation of the television series that had ended in 1989, as well as the 1996 television movie, the revival of the program in 2005 relegated it, and its Doctor, to unofficial status. The series was scripted by veteran Doctor Who writer Paul Cornell, with Richard E. Grant providing the voice for the Ninth Doctor. This performance followed years of rumours that Grant would play the Doctor in a film or new series, and indeed he had appeared as the "Conceited Doctor" in the Comic Relief special Doctor Who and the Curse of Fatal Death in 1999. Grant subsequently went on to appear in the revived television series of Doctor Who as a guest villain in 2012's "The Snowmen".
Derek Jacobi reprised his role as the Master in 2007's "Utopia".
David Tennant appeared in a cameo role as the Caretaker, later being cast as the Tenth Doctor in 2005.

- David Tennant would go on to play the Tenth Doctor in the television series proper from 2005 to 2010. He appeared in Shalka in an uncredited role as a caretaker. He was not originally cast in the production but happened to be recording a radio play in a neighbouring studio, and when he discovered what was being recorded next door managed to convince the director to give him a small role.
- Richard E. Grant portrayed the villainous Dr Walter Simeon in 2012's "The Snowmen", having previously been cast as the Tenth Doctor in the 1999 charity special, "Doctor Who and the Curse of Fatal Death"; both were written by Steven Moffat.
- Sophie Okonedo appeared in 2010's "The Beast Below" and "The Pandorica Opens" as Queen Elizabeth X.
