One Of The Doctors Drops A Really Big Day Of The Doctor Spoiler

doctorEverything I’m going to talk about from here on out is meant to be a surprise. Turn back if you don’t want to know.

This Saturday marks the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who and the centrepiece celebration is The Day of The Doctor. Central to its storyline are three incarnations of the Doctor – the David Tennant, Matt Smith and John Hurt variations.

But will we be seeing any more?

Well, according to Tom Baker we will. He has told The Huffington Post:

I am in the special. I’m not supposed to tell you that, but I tell you that very willingly and specifically; the BBC told me not to tell anybody but I’m telling you straightaway.

What a curious statement. Was he going for a double bluff?

When asked for confirmation a BBC rep said “anything is possible.”

And, you know, it is. Because when Rich was putting together that list of ten things we sort-of, kind-of, maybe slightly know about the future of Doctor Who, I made some contributions.

Filtered into Rich’s words, one of the things I offered was:

There will be a total of fifty-something incarnations of The Doctor next week, one of whom will be played by Ryan Gosling. If he turns up.

And… well, that’s all I’m going to say for now.

But I don’t think Tom Baker was telling a fib. Not at all.

UPDATE: Rich says “and Brendon, you numpty, I also wrote”:

8. With all these doubles at play in Doctor Who thanks to insular casting – could that be another way to get past Doctors into the fiftieth anniversary? Including what we are still hearing, a Tom Baker cameo?
