Doctor Who fans could be getting a surprise present to mark the show’s 50th anniversary, as rumours that the BBC are planning a behind-the-scenes docudrama focusing on the show’s origins continue.

The bright sparks over at Doctor Who News were first with this story after spotting and advert for the following BBC Two job.

“You will be producing high-quality, cost-effective drama and will be accountable for the delivery of the drama on time and within the agreed editorial brief and production budget. One of your main responsibilities will be to help develop the script to the highest standards as well as encouraging, fostering and developing creative talent and ability on behalf of the Drama Department.

You will need drama-producing experience. A passion for drama and a knowledge of Doctor Who is essential.

Ideally the successful candidate will have a wide-ranging knowledge of the television drama production processes, preferably including period drama and use of CGI, and an understanding of the jobs of programme and resource personnel who are engaged to complete the production.?

Unfortunately, applications closed last Wednesday, but it has stoked speculation that we’ll be getting a behind-the-scenes style drama to mark the show’s half century.

Maybe there’ll be a Daleks: Origins scene in there somewhere? Here’s hoping..

You’re never going to be satisfied with our origins until someone claims Oscar the Grouch is our ancestor, are you?
