Doctor Who 50th anniversary: All the surviving Doctors will take part in a very special adventure

Radio Times announced that a new Doctor Who 50th anniversary adventure will bring together all the surviving Doctors along with a number of their original companions, according to writer and director Nicholas Briggs.

Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann are explicitly confirmed for the 100-minute-long audio story The Light at the End, while Briggs has hinted that remaining Doctors Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and incumbent Matt Smith are “behind the project”, and that the Time Lord’s first three incarnations, originally played by the late William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee, could also feature.

Meanwhile, the multiple Doctors are not the only characters returning for the adventure. Listeners can look forward to “appearances from some much-cherished old friends from the TV series” as well as several of the original actresses who played the Time Lord’s companions.

Louise Jameson will reprise her role as leather-clad barbarian Leela (although listeners will just have to imagine that outfit) who travelled with fourth Doctor Tom Baker, while Sarah Sutton will return as scientist Nyssa, who crossed over between Baker and Peter Davison. Her successor Nicola Bryant, aka American student Peri, will be joined by Sophie Aldred as Sylvester McCoy’s streetwise companion Ace and India Fisher as Edwardian adventurer Charley Pollard, who accompanied Paul McGann’s eighth Doctor in a series of BBC radio plays produced by Big Finish.

Last, but not least, the Doctor’s arch-enemy the Master is back to “create mayhem”, voiced by Geoffrey Beevers who played him in the TV series as a decaying husk at the tail end of his final regeneration.

Due for release in November, the audio production comes as a standard two-disc pack, as well as a limited edition five-disc set, complete with two hour-long documentaries plus an extra adventure, The Revenants, performed by William Russell, star of the very first Doctor Who TV story.

An Adventure in Time and Space, the 50th Doctor Who anniversary movie

I am not sure if I should be happy or I should weep, but, as BBC announced yesterday, Matt Gatiss has been commissioned by BBC Two to write a drama to tell the story of the Doctor’s genesis. The movie is set to air in 2013 as part of the Doctor Who 50th anniversary celebrations.

From my point of view, the mystery of Doctor’s origin is a part of great flavor of the the Doctor Who series. I appreciate a good movie, but I do not want a solve a mystery and leave an empty “space” instead of it. I would rather open the possibility to ask new questions, to let other mysteries enter, to be surprised.

The BBC today announces that a special BBC TWO drama has been commissioned to mark the 50thanniversary of Doctor Who next year.

An Adventure in Space and Time will tell the story of the genesis of Doctor Who since its first broadcast on 23 November 1963.  Exploring all aspects of the longest running science fiction series to date, the special one off 90 minute drama will also look at the many personalities involved in bringing the series to life.

Written by Mark Gatiss, it is Executive Produced by current Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner.  The single drama was commissioned by Ben Stephenson Controller, Drama and Janice Hadlow, Controller of BBC TWO.

Time Leech, Doctor Who comics for charity

I’ve never read the Time Leech comics, so this info about the adventures is new for me. Whatever. I found an article about this and I consider it interested to promote: you can get a copy of this comics and you can help other people.

You may recall that the first Time Leech adventure saw the Tenth Doctor landing in a London where Churchill was Prime Minister, Silurians and Elizabethans rubbed shoulders (seriously, two years beforeThe Wedding of River Song!) and the epicentre was a giant Time Leech in the middle of eating Westminster Abbey.

Following this, the Doctor and his mysterious new companion Ruth headed into space in Hellstar, where they found a deserted prison ship, empty bar a monster and a recovery crew… but they held a terrible secret that no one could have possibly guessed.

The final part, Time Bomb, saw the discovery of a giant Time Lord weapon materializing on Earth. Naturally only the Doctor can prevent detonation, but someone else is interested in the device…

Due to licensing restrictions the three-part Doctor Who strip can’t be published and request payment (BBC’s Doctor Who characters are copyrighted. But there is at least a way to work around the legal troubles.

There will be two targets for the raised funds: Children in Need and AICR (Association for International Cancer Research).

You have two ways to purchase your copy of Time Leech. First, there is the print version, in traditional graphic novel format. This has a price of £4.99 including postage and packing (£9.99 for international orders).

The second choice is the entire adventure in PDF, available for 99p. (We also have a second electronic format, CBR, available. If you require CBR, let us know when you checkout.)
