Twitter user, Marcus, has been very quick, to find a striking comparison to an existing character, this could be a Wrarth Warrior. Wrarths have not been seen in live-action before and the first appearance was in a Marvel comic story; titled ‘Doctor Who and the Star Beast’.

What is a Wrarth Warrior?

In the comics, this character is an insectoid, and is also part of an intergalactic police force; created by the Star Council.

Wrarth Warriors is usually associated with the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and mentioned by the Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker).

Beep the Meep?


Fans are also speculating that, this little creature seen in recent set photos could also be: Beep the Meep.

This character is the Wrarth Warrior police force’s most popular villain, that they have to deal with. Beep was first seen in Marvel Comic ‘Doctor Who and the Star Beast. The species is described as a dangerous furry creature with a concealed laser pistol, from the Wrarth Galaxy.

Running into a cab

In this brief late-night clip; David Tennant’s Doctor, alongside Shaun Temple, Sylvia Noble, Rose, and Donna rush into a cab. Blue stobe lights are flashing soon after, as Twitter user @ryxnf suggests; there could be some form of teleportation about to happen during the show. Who could they be running from?


There is a lot of mystery surrounding this 60th special, most of the speculation is about David Tennant is actually back. Russel T Davies is fuelling these theories more; with his instagram caption; suggesting flashbacks, parallel worlds and more. What are your theories about how the tenth Doctor is returning?
