Have I Got Whos For You!

Fans on the lookout for Doctor Who Christmas special location shooting and intrigued by Peter Davison and Sylvester McCoy’s recent appearance outside Television Centre have got themselves excited over the sight of what seemed to be McCoy and Tom Baker acting with a small crew and a police box prop today.

Alas, it turns out that the two figures are none other than Have I Got News For You stars Ian Hislop and Paul Merton, apparently recording a trailer for the news series which begins on October 5th. They’ve had Tom on the show on a couple of occasions, so there is clearly likely to be some affection in this short skit.

But here’s why they might have chosen this particular theme for the trailer beyond Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary: guest host for the second episode on October 12th is none other than Peter Capaldi

    Peter Davison has said he will play “some part” in the 50th anniversary (and suggested other Doctors would to) but wouldn’t say what in – maybe if Peter Capaldi is chairing this edition of HIGNFY, then the guests for it will be Peter Davison and Sylvester McCoy?
