I am looking forward to all the Who related stuff, but I have reservations about the 11 Doctors.
Given that it looks like it is only an hour long, how much time will there be devoted to getting each of them on screen with a line or two, and then allow for a story to develop.
I suspect it will be more of a visual treat rather than a classic story.
The 10th Anniversary story 'The Three Doctors' turned out quite well because of several factors.
Firstly, Hartnell was ill and his input was limited to a few 'On Screen' interruptions, leaving the majority of the story to be carried by Doctors #2 and #3.
Secondly, it was 4x25 minute episodes, thus giving plenty of time for story and character development.
Thirdly, the story itself was good, and lead to a furtherance of Time Lord lore (leading to further stories in the future based upon foundations set in this story).
Finally, the Unit background gave a ready made set of secondary characters already familiar to the audience.
