Doctor Who: Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Doctors Not In 50th Anniversary Special

It’s difficult to know who’s actually telling the truth about their involvement in Doctor Who‘s 50th Anniversary Special now – but it looks like we can safely rule out Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann.

The Special is currently shooting, but the actors are on the other side of the world, in Australia. They confirmed their absence in an appearance on Australian chat show Mornings. Colin Baker, who played the Sixth Doctor, stated:

“They’re actually making it now. So the likelihood is, as we’re sitting here with you, that [we won’t be doing it].”
