7 For Needy Children

As previously reported, there is likely to be a Special Doctor Who Episode for this year's Children In Need Event. Originally, it was thought that Doctor Who and Torchwood were going to have a crossover, but recent reports have said stated different information regarding the matter. Newspaper Sources such as the Sunday Mirror and News of the World, have latched onto a story, in which the seven surviving actors who play the Doctor; Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant. They will all reprise their roles, and hop back onto the Tardis set for a one-off special. In the past, there have been other stories in which multiple Doctors get together, like The Two Doctors or The Five Doctors. Just last year did Peter Davison come back, in Children In Need. You will probably think then that these are just rumours, but it has also been mentioned in the Daily Telegraph, which, in itself, is actually a very reliable source. Although it was just printed in a very small area, it could still mean it is true. Here is an extract from one source;
The actors are getting together for the BBC charity Children in Need in a programme to be broadcast on November 14.
An insider at the BBC said: "It's a pretty ambitious idea and it's still being finalised. Everything is being kept under wraps but Doctor Who fans are in for a big treat."
The first of the 10 actors to take the role was William Hartnell in 1963, followed three years later by Patrick Troughton and then by Jon Pertwee but all three have since died.
The seven survivors include Tom Baker, now best known as the voice of the comedy series Little Britain, who played the role for seven years from 1974.
He was followed by Peter Davidson from 1981 to 1984, whose daughter Georgia Moffett has also featured in the programme and who is now dating the current doctor, David Tennant.
The others are Colin Baker, from 1984 to 1986, Sylvester McCoy who had two stints from 1987 to 1989 and re-appeared in the role in 1996, Paul McGann, who took over the role in 1996 and Christopher Eccleston who reprised the series in 2005.
What do you think? Do you think or hope that this news is true?
