Although Peter Davison, the Fifth Doctor, is the only classic Doctor Who lead to reappear in the new era – meeting David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor in the Children In Need short ‘Time Crash’ – the actor doesn’t think he’s going to be appearing in the 50th anniversary episode, set to air later this year in 3D.

Speaking at MystiCon in Virginia, Davison said, “I’ve got a meeting with the head of BBC Wales… to go through various things the BBC have got planned. I don’t think she’s going to offer me a part in it… I might be wrong.

“I honestly don’t know very much,” he added. “I know that Steven Moffat will have something planned. I don’t think it will involve the older Doctors, certainly in their present form, because, of course, we’re meant to look exactly as we did when we left the TARDIS, and none of us really do.”
