With Doctor Who's 50th anniversary fast approaching, we've been hearing lots of buzz about what exciting things Who showrunner Steven Moffat may have in store. Now a new BBC internal job posting may have revealed another piece of the puzzle.

According to On The Box, the BBC may be putting together a behind-the-scenes docudrama to go along with whatever cool stuff Moffat is putting together. The rumor's been making the rounds for a while, but a new job posting at the BBC has gotten the rumor mill spinning once again.

Here's a copy of the job posting, which has since expired:

"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."

What do you think? Would you like a new behind-the-scenes feature based around the 50th anniversary?
