Peter Davison denies involvement in Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special

With the big event right around the corner, rumors are swirling about what the BBC and showrunner Steven Moffat have planned for the 50th Anniversary of "Doctor Who."

Past specials such as "The Three Doctors" and "The Five Doctors" serials have featured a crossover with past actors who have occupied the iconic science fiction character teaming up. However, according to Peter Davison, who held the role from 1981 to 1984, the likelihood of such a crossover event is slim.

"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," Davison told an audience at the recent Mysticon convention in America. "Some of us are not here anymore and others of us have weathered less well than others. I don’t know where I’d put myself in that category. I’m not going to make that decision."

While at this point Davison maintains he has no involvement in the special, he did admit to the audience that he had a meeting with one of the series' senior executives for later this year. "I’ve got a meeting with the head of BBC Wales when I get back to go through various things the BBC have got planned," he said. "I don’t think she’s going to offer me a part in it... I might be wrong."

The actor joked that he and fellow past Doctors Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy are determined to take part in the celebration... whether producers want them to or not. "I decided that if we weren’t going to be involved that I would get together with Colin and Sylvester and make our own little special," he said. "We’re going to get into the 50th anniversary special whether we’re invited or not!"
