The Eleven Doctors Special for Children In Need?
The Daily Mirror is reporting that all eleven Doctors will be coming together for a special one-off special for Children in Need this November. It reports that the 15 minute episode will be included in BBC1 annual Children In Need appeal in November and shooting of it will begin in September.
This is not the first time a rumour of this nature appeared in the tabloids. The same thing was said to be happening last year for Children in Need except with 10 Doctors which did not happen.
The article states that "images from their original shows, stretching from 1966 to 1974" will be used for the actors William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, and Jon Pertwee who have since passed away. They will make cameo appearances through footage from these previous episodes.
It states the living actors have all waived their fee for this charitable venture.
"This is a momentous episode for all Doctor Who fans. Never before have all the Doctors been in the same room, let alone in the same show," their unnamed source says as stated in the article.
It continues, "...the script has already been started and it’s classic Doctor Who – really witty and very sharp."
"Viewers will see the Time Lords regenerating and emerging one by one from the TARDIS, each with their own quirky opening line."
The BBC has not confirmed this story. According to the article, they only confirmed that there would be a Doctor Who special for Children in Need. This is not surprising as Doctor Who has had a good tradition of having special offerings for the Children in Need appeal.
All of this information is unconfirmed and should be treated as such.
