Re: Big Finish Multi-Doctor 50th Anny Announcement
It says THE FIRST EIGHT Doctors.
Just pointing that out...
Most likely that means Peter "Steven" Purves as the First Doctor, David Troughton as (his father) the Second Doctor, and I don't know who (Sean Pertwee?) as the Third.
I very much doubt that. David Troughton and Sean Pertwee have repeatedly said they won't portray their fathers' characters. I don't see Peter Purves, William Russell or Frazer Hines playing the First and Second Doctors either because they only did it in the Companion Chronicle narration format instead of playing them outright. I don't see a Companion Chronicle narration working here.
Instead, I expect there will be references to the first three Doctors being involved without directly "seeing" them.
