Sunday was a big day for Doctor Who news -- or at least for a fierce rumor fans hope is genuine Who news.
November's BBC Children in Need telethon made it a tradition in recent years to feature some sort of Who special as part of its fundraiser programming. Last year's show offered a Steven Moffat-written mini-episode, "Time Crash", bringing together current Doctor David Tennant and '80s version Peter Davison.
Now, reports claim the seven surviving actors who played The Doctor will reunite for this year's special. That means Tennant and Davision would join Tom Baker, Colin Baker, Sylvestor McCoy, Paul Mcgann and Christopher Eccleston for a reunion fans thought was impossible.
As for the 10th version of the Time Lord, Tennant is either walking away at the end of 2009's four special episodes, or he's looking to sign on through 2011. The only announcement on the situation that matters will come from the BBC and Tennant.
