Well the official BBC site and the next DWM have pictorial confirmation of Peter Davison's brief return to the series for a "Children In Need" special next month. Entitled "Time Crash" it is written by Steven Moffat.
This raises a few questions for me, most obviously "will it be canon" ? (the 1983 and 2005 CiN specials were but few countenance the 1993 "Eastenders" crossover as canon for either series) , will they recreate the white '80s TARDIS interior for Davison to appear in and will they use a companion actor (the 5th Doctor was never officially alone between stories - Big Finish used this to their advantage with Nyssa, Turlough and Peri expanding their 'sole companion' periods) ?
