What do you really want for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary? Is it fun, excitement, the conclusion of a massive arc… or is it the satisfaction of seeing The Eleven Doctors, reunited as they should be?
We’re not sure either. Or we weren’t, until we learned this morning that Steven Moffat had tacitly admitted that a character crash of Time Lords was exactly what he had been writing…
Getting the other Doctors involved would be very fitting for the anniversary episode, wouldn’t it?
We’ve heard from Doctor Who Online that Steven Moffat did indeed say those words at the BBC Drama Commissions event this week.
Reported in the Mirror, all surviving Doctors are believed to have agreed to take part in the anniversary special. We know that Colin Baker has denied involvement, but that was several weeks ago now – things might well have changed.
There are also suggestions that older Doctors – and those sadly no longer with us – will be represented using archive footage and CGI. Given that the production is being made in 3D and that mixing old footage with new can be done on a laptop with reasonable results, it’s fair to assume that this rumour can become a reality.
What do you think? Is this really an admission, or Steven Moffat subterfuge?
