According to The Mirror today, all eleven incarnations of the Doctor will unite in a special scene written exclusively for Children in Need 2009.
The report claims that the mini-episode, which will air in November as part of the BBC One’s appeal night for the charity, will see Matt Smith make his television debut as the Eleventh Doctor, alongside David Tennant (#10), Christopher Eccleston (#9), Paul McGann (#8), Sylvestor McCoy (#7), Colin Baker (#6), Peter Davison (#5) and Tom Baker (#4). The first three Doctors, William Hartnell, Partick Troughton and Jon Pertwee, will be included by using original shots from their tenures as the Time Lord and superimposing them onto the new footage.
“This is a momentous episode for all Doctor Who fans,” a source told the newspaper. ”Never before have all the Doctors been in the same room, let alone in the same show.”
They added: “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.”
It’s thought that the Tenth Doctor will call on his previous and future incarnations to help him track down a special piece of time travel apparatus.
Filming for the 15-minute sketch is said to begin in September. As always with these tabloid rumours, take the news with a pinch of salt until there’s any official word about it from the BBC!
