Anyone consider the possibility that Mark Gatiss' historical depiction of the early history of Doctor Who might be something of a canard wherein the characterizations of Hartnel, Troughton, (and perhaps others) along with their on-screen companions, are actually being recreated, not just for Gatiss' very real docudrama, but also for the actual 59th anniversary episode of Doctor Who as well?

The idea being that in addition to shooting scenes for Gatiss' film, mightn't they also be taking advantage of the situation by shooting additional footage of these period look-alikes and recreated period settings specifically for inclusion in a multi-doctor anniversary episode?

Seems like this would be a no-brainer, as you could spread the cost of recreating these older characters, sets, and locales over two productions, at a substantial savings to both.
I would've considered the posibility if the Anniversary Special was longer, but, an hour just isn't enough screentime to add in a bunch of Doctors that are still living, let alone the ones who have already passed on
Agree, unfortunately it seems like that won't be the case. I suppose the old style console might appear because we know they're all stored in the TARDIS. But, the 60 minute length is a big limitation.
