Doctor Who fans worldwide are united in their excitement, for in only a few short hours, the 50th anniversary special episode of one of the world’s favourite ever sci-fi TV shows will air simultaneously in 90 countries.
The BBC, crew and cast (for the most part) are being notoriously tight-lipped about the plot, although the Radio Times listing for the episode indicates that events will take place in modern day London, Elizabethan England, and out in space, and that “all of reality is at stake – and the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.”
Cast members include Doctors David Tennant, Matt Smith and John Hurt, (and possibly also Tom Baker, although he isn’t mentioned in the listings), companions Billie Piper and Jenna Coleman, while Jemma Redgrave reprises her role as UNIT’s head of scientific research, Kate Stewart, and Gavin & Stacey’s Joanna Page appears as Queen Elizabeth I, and Watson & Oliver’s Ingrid Oliver as Osgood (who incidentally has been seen sporting Tom Baker’s Doctor’s scarf).
