This crossover could introduce an entirely new actor and incarnation of the Doctor, exclusive to Fortnite, or feature David Tennant in a dual role. With Tennant’s distinct mannerisms being an integral part of his portrayal, this trailer will likely have a familiar feel for fans of his Doctor.
A Fortnite x Doctor Who collaboration has been rumored for some time, with respected Fortnite leakers like @FNBRintel first discussing the possibility last year. This exciting event comes just in time for the Doctor Who 60th Anniversary Specials, which will see David Tennant’s Fifteenth Doctor reunite with Catherine Tate’s beloved companion Donna Noble after over a decade.
