BBC Confirmation and Pics!

The Tenth Doctor meets the Fifth Doctor.
David Tennant's Tenth Doctor is set to meet Peter Davison's Fifth Doctor in a special scene commissioned for BBC One's Children in Need.

The scene, entitled Time Crash, was written by award winning Doctor Who writer Steven Moffatt, and will transmit as part of the Children in Need fundraising evening on Friday 16 November 2007.

"It is an honour for me to be able to make the connection between the Fifth Doctor and the Tenth Doctor," noted Peter Davison. "However, now is not the time for sound-bites. I can feel the hand of history on my shoulder, even if I can't do the buttons up!"

Look out for more coverage on the site nearer the time - and don't forget to support Children In Need and donate on the night!

There's also a photo in the link, and another, larger photo in The Sun. I guess the rumor about Peter not wearing the Fifth Doctor costume were false.

Twenty Questions for Peter Davison!

As reported on the Outpost Gallifrey News Page: Whatsonstage.com has posted a 20 question interview with Peter Davison, who is seen below in his role as King Arthur in Spamalot.  Davison talks about Spamalot, Doctor Who, and the dedication of his adoring fans: "Someone must be stalking me!"  (Perhaps all the unintentional squeeing from the hedgerows tipped him off??)


Time Lords reunite for charity

Doctor Who fans need to bookmark Friday, November 16. Yes, it's Children in Need night on the BBC, and the festivities for the charity extravaganza will include one of the most eagerly anticipated meetings in the series' history.

Former Doctor Peter Davison is set to come face to face with current incumbent David Tennant.

Naturally, bosses at the channel are keeping mum over the exact nature of the storyline which brings the two men together, but a source said: "The Doctor is forever travelling though time so there's no reason why he couldn't catch up with a former incarnation."

Davison, one of the series' most popular Doctors, revealed how the revamped version of the sci-fi classic had gone down a storm with his own brood.

However, their love of the show had come at a price.

He said: "My kids said I was their favourite Doctor until David Tennant came along. Now they've completely swapped their allegiance from their dad to this Scottish fellow!"
