A few months ago, you may have read my post regarding Who York, and some of DWNY's exciting plans to create Doctor Who events and conventions in New York City. Well, the first of those plans has now come to fruition, with the announcement of the first Who York Event - A Who York Evening with..... Louise Jameson, who played Leela with the 4th Doctor.

Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 162

Part 2 of our in-depth interview with Gary Russell, plus Jules Burt (Rise of the Cybermen & Age of Steel) returns to Doctor Who: Podshock with his newlywed wife, Wendy.
For many Doctor Who fans, especially those of a certain age (and it still upsets me that I can now use that phrase about myself!), the biggest news of the summer - with the exception of the first pictures of the 11th Doctor - has been the return of Tom Baker to the role that made him a national institution and an icon all over the world. Yes, the 4th Doctor is back - in a 5 part audio adventure called Hornet's Nest from BBC Audio. It's been almost 30 years since the 4th Doctor had a new adventure. 30 years since those wonderful warm and throaty tones have been part of a new Doctor Who story.

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.
