Fiftieth anniversary speculation has been upgraded from the amber ‘rumour’ to the equally vague but more encouraging magenta ‘suggestion’ as Matt Smith hinted at the possibility of multiple specials to be aired according to Bleeding Cool.
In this month’s Doctor Who Magazine Matt Smith commented that he had been told the idea for Steven Moffat’s ‘first’ anniversary special (the episode itself is unwritten) suggesting that, yes indeed, there may be more than one.
Matt described the idea as:
“As brilliant and as mental as you’d expect from Steven”.
Teasing us further Smith added that while Moffat was on a pitching roll he also shared his plans for Series 8, offering the Eleventh Doctor this question/challenge:
“Are you ready to cry?”
So is this a magenta suggestion that Smith will be departing after the second half of Series 7 and an undisclosed number of specials due to hit our screens in 2013?
