It has been confirmed by BBC One controller Danny Cohen of a Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special! There is already a documentary to come out regarding Doctor Who’s history.
“Drama on BBC One takes another big leap in 2013 in the shape of some major event dramas, including The Village, Ripper Street, Luther, The White Queen and the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special. These shows will bring a rich range of tones and worlds to BBC One’s fiction.”
Now the only question is, will ALL the doctors return? Eleven actors have portrayed the Doctor – in order with the first doctor – William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant and currently Matt Smith.
Christopher Eccleston, who played my favorite doctor – The Ninth Doctor, was asked if he was going to be in the 50th Special. He could not comment on it. David Tennant, the 10th doctor, has been asked multiple times and does not have a definite answer yet.
Doctor Who was first broadcast on November 23rd, 1963 and sources say it may play the same day in 2013. It has not yet been confirmed. News will be updated once confirmed!
