Doctors unite for Children In Need special

This year's Doctor Who Children In Need special will reportedly bring together all 11 Doctors for the first time in the show's history.

The 15-minute episode, to be screened in November, will include the first appearance by brand new Doctor Matt Smith, reports the Daily Mirror.

The first three Doctors, played by deceased actors William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee, will appear thanks to the use of footage from the BBC's archives.

A Doctor Who source told the paper: "This is a momentous episode for all Doctor Who fans. Never before have all the Doctors been in the same room, let alone in the same show.

"It's been a logistical nightmare getting all the actors together and available for shooting on the same days."

The script will see current Doctor David Tennant enlisting the help of his previous incarnations as he attempts to hunt down a piece of time travel apparatus.

Although this episode will feature all the Doctors for the first time, it won't be first occasion when more than one Doctor has appeared together on screen.

Two years ago, Peter Davidson appeared alongside David Tennant in a special mini-episode called Time Crash and 1993 special Dimensions In Time saw Doctors three to seven turn up in Albert Square. Meanwhile, back in 1983 The Five Doctors featured Doctors one to five, however, William Hartnell was replaced by Richard Hurndall.

BBC denies 'Doctor Who' reunion reports

The BBC has denied speculation of an "all-Doctors reunion" for this year's Children In Need.

The Mirror claimed that all ten incarnations of The Doctor would appear together in a 15-minute episode to be shown as part of the annual telethon in November.

The special would see David Tennant's Doctor calling on his nine predecessors to help him find a missing piece of Time Lord apparatus. The actors who portrayed the first three Doctors - William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee - are all deceased but would be represented by archive footage.

The report also claimed that the special would mark the first appearance of Matt Smith as the Doctor, although Smith is not due to take over from Tennant in the titular role until early 2010.

A spokesman told the newspaper: "Nothing has been finalised yet, although there is discussion of a Children in Need Doctor Who special. It is too early to say what."
