While we’re still over two years out from the official 50th anniversary for the greatest TV show that has been or ever will be, producer Steven Moffat says that plans are being made to celebrate Doctor Who in 2013.
“I’ve got various plans, but all I can say emphatically is it will be huge,” Steven Moffat tells TVLine.
Moffat went on to say that the anniversary won’t just be limited to a single TV special, but will instead be a variety of things to celebrate the series.
“It won’t be just one thing…. We’ll be doing lots of stuff,” is all Moffat would concede. “The plans are quite extensive, and changing all the time. Oh my God, we will hit that year very, very hard indeed.”
Noting that BBC execs “are fully committed” to his grand vision, he said, “There’s lot of decisions we’re making that are about making all that possible. It’ll be amazing.”
What of rumors that the Time Lords of the past — any combination of Tom Baker, Peter Davidson, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant — will reunite for the occasion? And might other familiar faces from the past return?
“Possibly…. It’s so far in the future, it’s only a set of notions,” he replies, adding that he’s still got this year’s Christmas special to focus on before he gets to locking in plans for the 50th anniversary.
