Is “The Eleven Doctors” Really the 50th Anniversary Doctor Who Episode?

Blogtor Who—a solid Doctor Who fansite—briefly posted a round-up of rumors relating to the 50th Anniversary episode of the show. Among these rumors was a massive revelation that the much-anticpated episode will feature all 11 incarnations of the Doctor and indeed be called “The Eleven Doctors.”

Further, this report went on to say two version of the script were in development due to the contingency of Christopher Eccelston being involved/not involved. These reports also state that the 50th Anniversary will start filming this Feburary, and Matt Smith’s Doctor will regenerate at the turn of 2013/2014.

Now, all of these rumors sound fairly unsubstantiated, but they’re not ridiculous. All 11 Doctors could appear either through re-used footage, Forest Gump-style insertion of contemporary Doctors into old footage, Tron:Legacy-style CG-young versions, or new footage! What’s strange is that Blogtor Who took the post down, even though they copped to the fact these were only rumors. This makes some of us think that maybe too much information go leaked out…

What do you think?

Thanks to Bleeding Cool for catching the post before it went down.
