Moffat Hints at Five-Oh Birthday Plans

Are you excited about the Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary? Because Steven Moffat is!

The Executive Producer has started hinting about his plans for the milestone event and he’s promising that fans are in for a real treat.

Rumours and wish lists have already started with many of us hoping that we’ll be seeing the return of old monsters, locations and most importantly past Doctors.

After all, Moffat was the one who paired up the Fifth and Tenth Doctors so who’s to say that he wouldn’t bring together all the others as well?

“There will never be a better time, I promise you…I’m saying this as a Doctor Who fan myself, and knowing a certain amount about what’s coming…for so many reasons I can’t talk about yet, there will never be a better time to be a Doctor Who fan,.”

This may be the best celebration that the Doctor has ever had, the tenth anniversary gave us The Three Doctors, the twentieth gave us The Five Doctors, the 30th gave us Dimensions in Time (ahem) and the fortieth gave us the news that the show had been re-commissioned.

As Doctor Who fans, we’ve always been given the nicest presents when it comes to the Doctor’s birthday. Rassilon alone knows what we’re going to get now that the shows back in its seat of reigning power and that it’s got a bigger budget.

It’s going to be a present that never gets boring, that’s for sure…


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
