Doctor Who Anniversary Special Paparazzi Pictures Reveal Characters And Setting

The BBC are releasing official information on the upcoming 50th anniversary special for Doctor Who in just the way they always do. If you see an official news piece – Joanna Page joining the cast, for example, or the return of the Zygons – you can rest assured that this was about to become public knowledge through some other means.

What this will mean as we go on, I expect, is the revelation of more guest stars and monsters ahead of their appearance on location.

You’ll see what I mean from these set pictures, courtesy of The Daily Mirror. You’ll see a Zygon, David Tennant in his Who suit and Joanna Page.

But there’s more, too… because this is the Tenth Doctor’s Tardis we see here, I believe. And Page’s costume certainly seems to suggest a period, if not in fact that she’s playing Elizabeth I – or Liz One, as you might have it.

Meanwhile, there’s another possible, minor clue to Who plotlines to come at The Radio Times today. They’ve published the entire first chapter of Summer Falls, the Amelia Williams book featured in last Saturday’s episode. And there’s a plot blurb too, which says:

In the seaside village of Watchcombe, young Kate is determined to make the most of her last week of summer holiday. But when she discovers a mysterious painting entitled The Lord of Winter in a charity shop, it leads her on an adventure she never could have planned.

Kate soon realises the old seacape, painted long ago by an eccentric local artist, is actually a puzzle. And with the help of some bizarre new acquaintances – including a museum curator’s magical cat, a miserable neighbour, and a lonely boy – she plans on solving it.

And then, one morning Kate wakes up to a world changed forever. For the Lord of Winter is coming – and Kate has a very important decision to make.

That not only seems to riff on The Fall of the Eleventh, there’s also another reference to a painting…
