Davison Doubts Classic Doctor Anniversary Involvement
Have you been looking forward to a mini Time Crash reunion as part of the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special? If so, you might be disappointed as Peter Davison doesn’t expect to be invited…
Speaking at an event in February, Davison revealed that he doesn’t “know very much”.
I know that Steven Moffat will have something planned. I don’t think it will involve the older Doctors, certainly in their present form, because of course we’re meant to look exactly as we did when we left the TARDIS and none of us really do. Some of us are not here any more and others of us have weathered less well than others. I don’t know where I’d put myself in that category. I’m not going to make that decision.
Oh dear. But it’s not all bad news. The Fifth Doctor actor has certainly got his own ideas about how his likeness might appear.
I think we’ll be featured somewhere but I should think it’s probably footage lifted from older Doctor stories. I don’t know. We are doing some Big Finish audios. I know that there are events planned by the BBC. I’ve got a meeting with the head of BBC Wales when I get back to go through various things the BBC have got planned. I don’t think she’s going to offer me a part in it… I might be wrong.
We think that this is a shame, but at least Peter is being in many ways realistic. What’s more it seems as though he has a back up plan…
I decided that if we weren’t going to be involved that I would get together with Colin [Baker] and Sylvester [McCoy] and make our own little special… If we can possible manage it, we’re going to get into the 50th anniversary special whether we’re invited or not!
You know, a little part of me is hoping we get that…
