Moffat on Classic Doctors in the 50th

Over the past few months Steven Moffat has stressed that no Classic era Doctors will be featured in the The Day of the Doctor.

Moffat said in an interview with SFX magazine (#241, out 16 October):

“The absolute reality was we didn’t have all those Doctors about to come back through the door. There were limitations to who we could get back.

“They’re all brilliant, they’re all terrific, but time has passed. I think it would be beyond the dignity of all those very fine actors to want to force themselves back into a costume from 20 or 30 years ago.

“I was thinking more “What would be a grand old story for the Doctor? And what would speak to the generation who are watching it now, while still celebrating the fact that it’s been around for all that time?” Everyone wanted to see David again – that’s just a fact. And David and Matt together are glorious. That’s a joy.”

Whovians can create their own Daleks at museum exhibit

The National Media Museum is going to be invaded by Doctor Who fans. To celebrate the 50th anniversary, the museum is opening up its doors for Doctor Who Family Fun.

The exhibition will be a host of activities for Whovians of all ages. Visitors will be able to create a light-up TARDIS, a moving Dalek, or make their own Doctor Who monster to take home with them. The exhibit will also feature a behind-the-scenes film showing how Doctor Who is made.

The episode ‘Nightmare in Silver’, featuring Matt Smith taking on the Cybermen, will also be shown for visitors.

The whole family will be able to participate in a Doctor Who trivia while the children are making their own monsters.

The museum’s learning program coordinator Elaine Richmond said: “We hope families will join us this half term to help keep the Museum from the clutches of the dreaded Daleks. We’re very excited about this event and promise a lot of Doctor Who-themed fun and activities in anticipation of the 50th anniversary episode next month.”

The Doctor Who Family Fun takes place at the National Media Museum, Bradford from October 26 to November 3.
