Steven Moffat, showrunner of Doctor Who, has recently explained in an interview with Entertainment
Weekly magazine why the 50th Anniversary special of the show will not be focused around an Eleven Doctors reunion.
“What we’re not doing is the traditional massive reunion. It’s a different kind of anniversary, and the spine of that is David and Matt.”
When asked if any Doctors other than Tennant and Smith will be appearing, Moffat had this to say:
“You’ll have to watch, won’t you? People say, “Are you going to do the 11 Doctors?” We can’t do 11 Doctors! Three of them are dead!”
The 50th Anniversary special of Doctor Who will be shown on 23rd November in the UK.
What do you think about Moffat’s decision? Do you agree that the special needs to have a different angle, or that Moffat’s gone too far and isn’t representing 50 years of the show properly? Let us know in the comments section below.
