The New Rose of Doctor Who and Her Ties to David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor Are Revealed.
The BBC has announced that Yasmin Finney will play the new character Rose in the Doctor Who 60th anniversary specials.
Rose Noble is the daughter of Karl Collins’ Shaun Temple and returning companion Donna Noble.
Rose is a new character played by Finney, and the showrunners are aware of the heritage of the name’s previous incarnation in the beloved Rose Tyler. We look forward to chills, giggles, and the introduction of Ncuti Gatwa as the Fifteenth Doctor.
The BBC has revealed who the new character Rose will be in the upcoming 60th-anniversary specials of Doctor Who. Rose Noble, the daughter of The Doctor’s returning companion Donna Noble (Catherine Tate), will be played by Yasmin Finney. Fans have been speculating about this ever since Finney was cast. Rose Tyler (Billie Piper), who accompanied both the Ninth (Christopher Eccleston) and Tenth (David Tennant) Doctors, was so liked that many fans assumed the new Rose would be Donna Noble’s daughter. A social media post from the BBC confirmed that Rose (played by Finney) is the offspring of Donna (played by Collins) and Shaun (played by Temple).
“Welcome to the #DoctorWho family, Rose Noble,” read the tweet from the official Doctor Who account, which also wished Yasmin Finney a happy birthday. An intriguing scenario was hinted at in the post:
When Rose finally meets one of her mother’s longest friends, what will happen? What we do know is that, like her mother before her, Rose encounters something out of the usual, and that discovery changes everything for her seemingly normal household.
Despite the fact that Rose Finney plays an entirely new character, the return of Rose Tyler’s creator, Russell T. Davies, as showrunner made the character’s similar name seem more than coincidental. Before the SAG-AFTRA strike, in an interview with Elle, Finney acknowledged that she and the production crew were aware of the name’s history with Doctor Who.

To play a figure with such history, even just the name, you’ve got that pressure instantaneously,” Finney told Elle. It’s a privilege to play a role as significant as Rose, and the fact that the character is transgender is icing on the cake.
Finney also provided a preview of the 60th anniversary specials that will air in November. She also expressed her enthusiasm about working with Ncuti Gatwa, the Fifteenth Doctor, who would make his debut in the 2023 Christmas Special, saying that the show would be “full of scares, full of laughs, full of all of it.”
Special episodes celebrating 60 years of Doctor Who will screen in November, with David Tennant as the 14th Doctor and Catherine Tate as Donna Noble. After the specials, Ncuti Gatwa will make his debut as the Fifteenth Doctor in the 2023 Christmas Special, and Season 14 of Doctor Who will premiere in 2024. Rose Tyler: The Dimension Cannon, the next edition in the series starring Billie Piper as Rose Tyler, will also feature new experiences for fans to enjoy.
