Will Jenny come back to Doctor Who
The Doctor’s daughter, Jenny, was the Doctor’s only child and was a beloved character. Despite this, Jenny has never reappeared in Doctor Who. Jenny is the Doctor’s only child, but despite being such a unique character, Jenny never returned to Doctor Who, The Doctor’s (then David Tennant) daughter (Georgia Tennant) first appeared in season 4, episode 8 “The Doctor’s Daughter” and was created from a DNA extraction the Doctor was forced to give when he, Martha (Freema Agyeman), and Donna (Catherine Tate) land on the planet Messaline.
Jenny is actually a clone, as the inhabitants of the planet had been churning out clones of themselves to supply their army for the war of Haths versus humans. Jenny and the Doctor’s story was very turbulent, from the Doctor not accepting Jenny as his child to Jenny taking a bullet for the Doctor to save him.
Throughout the episode the Doctor does start to see Jenny as his own and teaches her his morals, causing him heartbreak when she dies, and he soon departs Messaline. However, Jenny comes back to life afterward, most likely through a weaker form of regeneration inherited from her father.
