Will the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary see the Fall of Arcadia?
There has been a potential clue that the 50th Anniversary special will feature scenes from The Last Great Time War.
According to actor Ankur Sengupta’s online CV, he has a couple of minor roles in the special episode: one as a UNIT soldier and the other, more intriguingly, as an Arcadian refugee.
The Fall of Arcadia was a major battle in the Time War. The Tenth Doctor mentioned it in ‘Doomsday’, Series 2 Episode 13.
DALEK SEK: How did you survive the Time War?
DOCTOR: By fighting. On the front line. I was there at the Fall of Arcadia. Someday I might even come to terms with that.
The Eleventh Doctor also visited it off-screen with Amy Pond, as mentioned in ‘Vincent and the Doctor’. Although Amy alludes to it as being one of the nice places she has visited, so presumably this was before the Time War started.
The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special will air on Saturday, 23rd November on BBC One & BBC One HD.
