As Much as We Need The Doctor, Haiti Needs Doctors Even More Now

Support Doctors Without Borders in Haiti

We know we have been asking for your support so we can continue doing what we do, and although we still need that support, we hope we can extend that support as a community to help victims of the tragic quake in Haiti this week. 

Resources are extremely limited in Haiti right now. While the death toll in the end will be staggering, there are many survivors that are in urgent need of medical attention.

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.
