Doctor Who Stars To Unite at 50th Anniversary Celebration

Current Doctor Who star Matt Smith is to unite with past Time Lords including Tom Baker and Sylvester McCoy at an event in London to mark the cult TV show’s 50th anniversary.

The actors will all appear at the 50th anniversary celebration event in the British capital in November, along with another former Doctor Who Colin Baker.

The convention will run over three days and feature question-and-answer sessions with cast members, a special effects display from the show’s resident expert Danny Hargreaves, and masterclasses with Doctor Who’s ‘monster choreographer’ Ailsa Burke.

The event will run from November 22-24 at London’s ExCeL exhibition center, coinciding with the screening of the show’s anniversary episode on November 23.

The special installment will reportedly feature new cast member John Hurt as well as a reappearance by former Time Lord David Tennant and his onscreen assistant Billie Piper.

Rory Kinnear Tipped as Next Doctor Who

James Bond star Rory Kinnear has been tipped to take over as the next Doctor Who.

The British actor, who appeared in Quantum of Solace and Skyfall, has been named as the bookmakers’ favorite to replace Matt Smith in the cult sci-fi TV show when he steps down after this year’s (13) Christmas special.

Bookies had previously named Ben Daniels as the frontrunner for the coveted job, but Kinnear is now a clear favorite as bosses at Ladbrokes suspended bets on his appointment amid rumors he has been formally offered the job.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes tells the Daily Mirror, “Kinnear has been a popular pick but after a flurry of activity pushed him into favorite, we closed the book (suspended bets).”

The Time Lord has previously been played by actors including David Tennant, Christopher Eccleston, Sylvester McCoy and Colin Baker.
