In slightly surreal scenes at London’s BBC Television Centre this morning (September 9th) Doctor Who stars Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and allegedly John Barrowman were spotted waving placards in an apparent attempt to express their discontent over their exclusion from November’s 50th Anniversary special episode.
Their placards (seen below) proclaimed: “Have a heart, classic Doctors want a part!” and “No classics? No 50th!”
Fans have been left wondering if this was a genuine protest, a new skit from Peter Davison for Gallifrey One (the US-based fan convention site) or even an effort from the BBC at distracting fans from the filming of Matt Smith’s final appearance as the Doctor in the Christmas special, which began yesterday.
