We here at BSR like to speculate, it’s true. When it comes to Doctor Who, we kind of kick it into overdrive. This time, the latest rumor floating around isn’t ours, but it sure has out collective mouths watering and our geeky, robotic brains firing on all cylinders. According to the IMDb page for the last episode of Series 6, we’re going to have not one, not two, but rather three whole doctors in an adventure together!
Obviously, we’re taking this with a grain of salt seeing as IMDb isn’t exactly the bastion for solid news. It could be great, though. Matt Smith will obviously be there as the 11th Doctor, but the credits also list David Tennant and Peter Davison reprising their roles as the 10th and 5th Doctors respectively.
Multi-Doctor stories are always a treat because given a Time Lord’s long lifespan and the fact that each incarnation of The Doctor has a distinct personality and way of doing things, egos and ideologies will no doubt clash like fish fingers and custard.
The last time we had a multiple Doctor story was in the Children in Need special Time Crash which was a short, but heartfelt meeting of the 5th and 10th Doctors. In it, we get a built in explanation as to why Peter Davison’s Doctor looks older (and a bit chubbier) than he did during his initial run. Given that both Time Crash and the as yet unnamed final episode of this series are both written by showrunner Steven Moffat is also a bit telling. At any rate, as the news unfolds, we’ll keep you posted if this is ever confirmed or debunked. Until then, enjoy watching Time Crash!
