Outpost Gallifrey is posting a rather bizarre but potentially wonderful rumopr on what we might see in Doctor Who’s fourth season next year.
According to Seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy, who apparently heard the news from no more unlikely source than Peter Jackson, Peter Davison is due to return in Series 5 for a multi-episode team-up between the 10th Doctor and the 5th.
