The Day Of The Doctor will celebrate 50 years of Doctor Who, and it appears that the classic series actors will get their moment to shine. Update: But sadly, not on the ABC.
The Fiveish Doctors is currently on the schedules of the BBC, accessed via the red button and set to air following The Day Of The Doctor. It’s described as follows:
Miss the classic Doctors? They’re back in this celebratory special written and directed by Peter Davison.
There also appears to be an associated Twitter account @TheFishDr, which has provided a few cryptic updates.

I’ve put a query through to the ABC to see if they’ll pick up the short special — my inner cynic doubts it, but it never hurts to verify.
Update: The ABC confirms (sadly) that it’s not getting this particular extra bit of 50th Anniversary fun.
