The Bells of St John

So, as it is all leading up to Saturday 23 November 2013...
  1. What is the Doctor's secret?
  2. Why is Clara twice dead (what is Clara's secret)?
  3. Who was the girl in the shop that gave Clara the St John mobile phone number as the internet helpline?
  4. Richard E. Grant?
 The Girl in the Shop

I doubt this is a coincidence.

Scream of the Shalka

Although Scream of the Shalka was intended to be an official continuation of the television series that had ended in 1989, as well as the 1996 television movie, the revival of the program in 2005 relegated it, and its Doctor, to unofficial status. The series was scripted by veteran Doctor Who writer Paul Cornell, with Richard E. Grant providing the voice for the Ninth Doctor. This performance followed years of rumours that Grant would play the Doctor in a film or new series, and indeed he had appeared as the "Conceited Doctor" in the Comic Relief special Doctor Who and the Curse of Fatal Death in 1999. Grant subsequently went on to appear in the revived television series of Doctor Who as a guest villain in 2012's "The Snowmen".

Derek Jacobi reprised his role as the Master in 2007's "Utopia".

David Tennant appeared in a cameo role as the Caretaker, later being cast as the Tenth Doctor in 2005.

50th Anniversary Who

The twentieth season of  Doctor Who began on 3 January 1983 with the story Arc of Infinity, and ended 16 March 1983 with The King's Demons. A 20th Anniversary special, The Five Doctors, followed in November 1983.

To commemorate the twentieth season, the stories in this season involve the return of previous villains.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hmm. I wonder whether the rest of series 7 of New Who might do the same for the 50th.

We know there will be a 50th anniversary special on 23 November 2013, and we have:
