Doctor Who rumors from The Sun

Doctor WhoThis is being reported by the British "newspaper" The Sun, so I urge you to consider the source before going mad with anticipation. The Sun first reported that Catherine Tate, Bernard Cribbins and John Simm would revisit their roles as Donna, Wilf and The Master respectively in one of the upcoming Doctor Who specials slated for 2009. Later, it reported that Paul McGann would return as the Doctor in a flashback capacity.

I would love for any of that to happen. Particularly McGann's return. But, it's The Sun. They're made it standard operating procedure to publish unsubstantiated rumors from unnamed sources. Much as I wish these were true, I'm not going to hold my breath unless I hear it from some sort of official source. Preferably the BBC.

Still, considering that I'm mentioning the articles here and including links back to the originals, we can conclude that this method of cheap publicity works. Bravo to The Sun! Thanks for eventually disappointing millions of Doctor Who fans worldwide.

McGann coming back would be great. Maybe it'll be in a flashback that explains more about the Time War since he's the doctor that had to have fought it.

I was rather young when the first series run of Doctor Who ended in 1989, and I haven't seen any Children in Need special. How exactly would two Doctors meet themselves?

I know it's probably just a rumour, but I'd so love to see Paul McGann back even just as a flashback.

I think the Children in Need special proved that a good "XX Doctors" story works. (where XX is any number of Docs) You could easily have a McGann/Tennant crossover special and it would be awesome. Hell even a McGann/Eccleston/Tennant crossover and I might explode.
