With everyone currently talking about the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary there’s still much specualtion about what previous Doctors will be involved.
Yes, we know from the poster (above) that David Tennant and Matt Smith will be joined by John Hurt as an inbetween/time war Doctor, but the fans are all holding out that we may still see others too.
And so, enter Peter Davison.
The actor who is 62 and was the fifth Doctor, has told BANG Showbiz: “I’m making an appearance somewhere over that period of time but I can’t reveal in what. I can’t reveal anything specific about it. I’m not allowed to. It is a big year for the show and we’re all doing our bit for it. Trust me.”
He also said he believes Doctor Who will eventually come to an end: “There will get to a point where people get a bit tired of Doctor Who. I don’t know, maybe it will need a little rest. I’d love to see it carry on but you can never tell.”
Also, for the record, he thinks Peter Capaldi is a good choice for the role: “He’s a fantastic actor and he has that sort of sense of humour. He has an edge to him as well and I think it’s nice to have a maturer Doctor.
So, what does this all mean? Well, we know there are going to be interviews and documentaries over the 50th weekend in November and the safe money would be that he’ll appear in one of these, that said, with Doctor Who you can never really tell as we all found out in the Children In Need Special, Time Crash:
