'Doctor Who' 50th anniversary celebrations set for 2013
Show's stars to host special talks for fans
Stars of cult sci-fi series "Doctor Who," including current Time Lord Matt Smith, are hosting special talks for fans next year as part of the show's 50th anniversary celebrations.
British Film Institute producers are planning a series of events for the "Doctor Who" at 50 tribute, to be held at the BFI Southbank in London throughout 2013.
Actors who have played the title role, including Smith and William Hartnell, will chat with devotees at monthly question-and-answer sessions, rare footage will be screened, and a preview of "Doctor Who" writer Mark Gatiss' new drama "An Adventure In Space And Time" will also be unveiled in November.
"Doctor Who" executive producer Caroline Skinner says, "To be doing this enormous and exciting project with the BFI is just a dream come true. We're delighted that in this 50th year for the show we have such brilliant support from the BFI for our celebration of Doctor Who's cultural heritage. Some of the stories we're going to show are thrilling, surprising, funny and just plain classic TV."
If William Hartnell, Patrick Troughtn,& Jon Pertwee did appear for talks I think it'd be more inline with a
Walking Dead convention!!!
People seem to be forgetting: We're talking about the Doctor here. If anyone can get answers from people that died decades ago, it's him.
Best show EVER. Why can't the US do something this amazing? It must be that high special-effects budgets actually hold back the writing...
I'm glad I'm not the only one who came here to comment about William Hartnell. This is what happens in a cut and paste world..... Maybe its a mistranslated (English to English?) suggestion that there will be a multi-media presentation.
Wait... maybe like Tupac at Bonnaroo?!
