The Birmingham Mail has caused quite a stir this week by reporting that the eleven actors will return – even the three dead ones thanks to digital trickery – for the celebration this year.
However, the sixth Doctor, Colin Baker, tweeted that he has not been approached for a TV appearance.
“Alas apart from The Big Finish (audio drama) plans I am not aware of any 50th stories nor have I been approached,” Baker tweeted.
Baker, Peter Davison, Sylvester McCoy, Tom Baker and Paul McGann are already on board to record the anniversary audio adventure.
Current Doctor Matt Smith said recently: “We’re as much in the dark as the majority of other people. I haven’t seen the script so I have no idea what is happening. One thing’s for sure, we’ll make it the biggest in the show’s history.”
David Tennant was said to have given a UK radio presenter a “knowing wink” when quizzed if he was going to appear.
