Some Official Info On The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special, At Last

The first official notification of how much anniversary flavoured Doctor Who we’ll be getting was on display today. It was printed on display cards at the London Toy Fair.

Here’s a photo of one such card that we were sent by three different Little Bleeders. Its original provenance is unclear but do let us know if you’re the one who originally took it.

So, there it is in… er…. blue and white, with some orange too. There’s one anniversary special and it’s 60 minutes long.

The Mark Gatiss-penned drama about the creation of the show is going to run to 90 minutes, but the actual Doctor Who episode itself, just 60.

Quite what Doctor Who Revisited will be isn’t yet clear. It might be the same thing as, or at least a cut-down version of, BBC American’s talking head specials The Doctors Revisited – there’s an obvious similarity in their names.

Steven Moffat has said that his show would “take over television” for the anniversary. That’s starting to look like something of an exaggeration.

UPDATE: BlogtorWho have laid claim to the picture. They’re pretty good at posting things and then deleting them, it seems…
