Peter Davison Films Own 50th Anniversary Special!

There is DISSENT among the ranks of senior Doctors! Cast your eyes, dear reader, to the covert snap below. The pic tweeted by @OneNConor apparently shows one Peter Davison and one Sylvester McCoy conversing outside BBC Television Centre with placards protesting at their lack of involvement in the 50th anniversary special…

“NO CLASSICS, NO 50th!!”

“Have a heart, Classic Doctors want a part!”

Scandal! Could we be seeing the start of a break-away faction? Could this point to the Big Finish stalwarts of the classic era taking matters into their own hands? I have to say, the combination of the sub-Blue Peter signage and Davison’s T-Shirt (apparently bearing the image of his Doctor’s cricketing jumper) suggests a tongue being lodged somewhere in the cheek vicinity.

So what is going on? What are Sylv, Pete and reportedly Baker, C. up to? I was under the impression that not much happens at BBC Televison Centre these days so it doesn’t seem the ideal place to launch a protest. In fact surely Cardiff, centre of operations for the Master of the Land of Fiction himself, would have made more sense?…

We have a small flotilla of televisual morsels for the 50th coming our way. And now my comedy sense is tingling. What think ye, Kasterborians?…
