Guest star Paul McGann has this week confirmed that a sequel to Peter Davison's critically acclaimed extended short film Doctor Who: The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot is currently in development. Originally released online to coincide with the 50th Anniversary, the video garnered mass plaudits from fans the world over, focusing on Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy's valiant attempts to appear in last year's triumphant 50th Anniversary Special, "The Day of the Doctor".
Better known to the world of Who fandom as the short-lived Eighth Doctor, McGann only had a cameo role in "Five(ish)" as a result of him eventually being asked by the BBC to film an exemplary prequel to the 50th, "The Night of the Doctor", in the late stages of "Day"'s production. The news landed at an interview he attended at the Cambridge Union Society, and though there's been no official confirmation of the project as of yet, it's hardly difficult to imagine that the BBC are intending to keep this under wraps until such a time when they can launch it to coincide with the beginning (or indeed the climax) of Season Eight. Stay tuned for more news on "The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot"'s follow-up in the weeks ahead!
Doctor Who will return for a new series of darker yet no less exhilarating adventures this August 23rd.
