Tom Spilsbury who is the editor of DWM has said this:

As Doctor Who fast approaches its 50th anniversary in 2013, the programme is set to get even bigger. Last week, I attended the first proper meeting at the BBC to discuss plans for the golden anniversary celebrations.

This confirms 2 exciting things.

1. They are planning something special enough to garner 3 years of prep
2. DW will still be around in 3 years time

That is enough to tide me over for a few days Smiley

This is brilliant news. Im glad they are planning so far ahead. The Doc said on his site a while back that the show was already in pre-planning for, I think, up to series 8 (assuming both parts of 2011 count as one series). I will see if I can dig it out.

I only had a quick scan so I might not have grabbed the right links, but there is this, which indicates a bright future

Its good to know they are taking the even seriously and planning ahead, though I think they will be planning something big scale as 3 years to prepare for a story seems like a long time. Perhaps another stage show or something, but obviously less obvious

Whatever it turns out to be this is all very encouraging - dare I say comforting?

Making plans is always a good sign Cheesy

I agree. Its a great thing for the fans and hopefully will give all the naysayer journalists something positive to report on for a change

*crosses fingers for a multi doctor story that includes 9*

RTD said he had this idea where the Doctor gets sick, and starts going through his regenerations in reverse. Cool concept, the problem is then, we wouldn't see the Doc's on screen together.

There is an article from a few months ago on the site about the plans for series 7 which I will look for and post this evening when I have a bit more time Smiley

I think the chances of 9 being in it are slim. He seems to want nothing to do with the show and he hasnt spoken too favourably about it recently

I know Sad but the thing is, he had a problem with the people who ran the show. Those people are gone now. So maybe he'll come back under a new regime, since he still appreciates the fans.

I remember reading a story where a child and his mother were out in London, and they saw Christopher Eccelston, and the kid wanted to meet his Doctor and get an autograph and stuff, and the mom was hesitant because she knew he left on bad terms and didn't want her kid's memory of him to be tarnished or something. But Eccelston was nothing but lovely, signed things, took a picture, talked to the kid etc. So yeah, his experience on their wasn't good, but he appreciates the fans a lot, and I would hope if he sees enough love out there he would come back, even if it is for a short scene.

I didnt think he had a problem with the crew overall, just with that one director he argued with?

If its a mutli Doctor story, I want to see them all, or none (except the current) I know some are dead, so not so easy, but this is a big milestone and none should be left out.

Matt Smith has commented to Io9 on the thought of a multi Doctor story...

"There hasn't been any official talk about it yet. That's still over a year away. But I'd love for it to happen. How amazing would it be to see Tom Baker?! Can you imagine just seeing him back in the scarf, man? That would be amazing! So cool! And Paul McGann is a great actor, man, and a great Doctor. I say bring back Chris and Dave, too! How many Doctors can we get into one story?! Imagine if there were five or six of us in one ep and we could all just look at each other and judge each other."

Moff has been speaking about the 50th again.

I’ve got various plans, but all I can say emphatically is it will be huge... it won’t be just one thing…. We’ll be doing lots of stuff... the plans are quite extensive, and changing all the time... We will hit that year very, very hard indeed. The BBC are fully committed. There’s lot of decisions we’re making that are about making all that possible. It’ll be amazing.

This isn't official, obviously, but I thought I would pop it in here. It's McCoy and Sophie Aldred talking about the 50th.

This is fan made, but I thought it was wonderful. Some people have a real talent for these things.
