Now THIS Is How You Do An Anniversary Special - Doctor Who: The Five(ish) Doctors [VIDEO]

The Five(ish) Doctors

If you only watched ‘An Adventure in Space and Time’ and ‘The Day of the Doctor’ anniversary special as part of your 50th anniversary of Doctor Who celebrations, then you're missing out. ‘The Five(ish) Doctors’ is thirty minutes of fun and delight spearheaded by Peter Davison which chronicles some of the past actors who played the Doctor in their efforts in being included in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special. It’s a real treat for long time fans, that also offers up some delights for new fans. The video is embedded below.

A Pond Farewell and a New Home for the Holidays [Infographic]

By now I will assume you have seen the latest episode of Doctor Who, The Angels Take Manhattan. If you have not, you may want to stop reading this until you have because this piece may spoil the episode for you. So consider this a spoiler alert (insert cloister bells here). 

In this next to last episode of the year 2012 we see the Ponds for the last time. Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) are doomed to live the rest of their lives in Earth's past without any further visits from the Doctor… Or we are led to believe at least. Though never say "never" in Doctor Who as it has been proven time and time again.

What did you think of their farewell?

Who York

I can finally announce our 3rd Who York event! We will be welcoming none other than the 7th Doctor - Sylvester McCoy - to NYC at Cafe 50 West on Sunday May 16, 2010 from 6.30pm. 

Sylvester played the Doctor on BBC1 from 1987-1989 and reprised the role in the 1996 TV movie, when he regenerated into the 8th Doctor, played by Paul McGann! Sylvester is a fabulous entertainer and always full of wonderful stories, so the evening should be a lot of fun! We'll have interviews, signings and more!

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.
