In case you hadn't noticed, this is Doctor Who's fiftieth anniversary. And, in true fan-style, speculation is rife about what will be happening between now and December. What we do know so far is that there will be a further 8 episodes that commence on the 30th of March, concluding series 7. There will be at least one anniversary special for broadcast around November 23rd. And there will be a 90-minute docu-drama based on the creation of the series back in 1963. We also know that both the Ice Warriors and the Cybermen are returning, that there will be a TARDIS-centric episode, and a tangled web of intrigue surrounding Clara. There will also be a Christmas special.
The 50th anniversary special itself has garnered a fair bit of controversy, as it has been heavily rumoured that it will be a mere 60-minutes long. Note that I said 'rumour'. In fandom, rumours can either be very close to the truth, or as far from it as an Ice Warrior on the sun. Steven Moffat himself has told us not to believe this guff, and I trust him completely. He is a fantastic writer and exec-producer, and it's his vision that has given our favourite show a new lease of life.
So, you loathe the idea of a 3D episode? Well, watch it in 2D then! Angry about the rumours of a sole 60-minutes for the biggest episode in the series' history? Don't believe them! Hate Moffat's vision for the show? Watch something else!
I watch Doctor Who because I love it. I trust Moffat and everyone else at the BBC to bring us a year to remember. Let's stop worrying, and enjoy the ride! And if you're still not happy, there IS the Big Finish audio celebration to look forward to....
