Forbidden Planet (UK) has announced the availability of two versions of the 3rd Doctor (as played by Jon Pertwee) collectable action figure expected to arrive in their warehouse on the 30th of October 2009. It is going to be available in two sets.
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.
I don't know why I am looking so serious here with the late great Jon Pertwee (right)... I don't think I knew the photo was being taken at this exact moment (I would have moved closer to Jon). October 1985 at Whovent85. Photo by Louis Trapani
Jon Pertwee (right) was always a blast to meet in person. Warm, hilarious, fun, and real all sum up the man. He is greatly missed. Photo taken October 1985 at Whovent85. Photo by Louis Trapani
Fans were always in for a treat and a real blast when Colin Baker (left) and Jon Pertwee (right) appeared together. They got on famously together. Here Jon joins the current Doctor at the time, Colin in October 1985 at Whovent85. Photo by Louis Trapani.
