Celebrate The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary!

50th Anniversary “Celebrating” Past Doctors

If there’s one thing Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary will provided it’s a celebration of what’s come before and what’s just over the horizon – that’s according to Matt Smith, who sat down with SFX to share some of his thoughts on the upcoming special.

Celebrate The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary!

Matt Smith told the magazine that Steven Moffat’s script will pay homage to the “wonderful actors” that preceded him:

It’s about looking back and forward at the same time, a bit like the Doctor does…It’s about celebrating everyone that’s been involved with it, all the wonderful actors that have taken part before me, and it’s also about looking forward.

Matt also went on to praise his Doctor Who forerunners:

I feel in a very privileged position, having had people like David and Chris, Tom [Baker], Patrick [Troughton], Jon [Pertwee], William Hartnell… great, great actors behind me.

Previously, Steven Moffat has underlined the importance of moving the Doctor’s story forward and not ‘all looking backwards’. Of course, it would be rude to not celebrate – but let’s not do it on their behalf… here’s hoping their invitation is in the mail (with an anniversary stamp of course!)



Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
