What, or rather Who you won't be seeing in November

Looking at that really does make all questions of being too old or too fat pretty ridiculous. It could have been fantastic.

They look great, every one of them is very recognizable.

Is Tom wearing a wig? I thought he was as balding as Colin?

No, that's Tom's natural hair.

Fantastic cover and I want to check out that issue. Is there any way to order just one magazine instead of a whole subscription?

Some American bookstores carry DWM-- I know Borders did when it was still around-- and I think a local comic shop could order you a single issue.

Yeah, but I'm living in Brussels now. The only English bookstore that I've found so far that carries magazines doesn't carry Doctor Who Magazine (at least when I've been there).

Have you checked the train station? In Germany all train stations (maybe not in tiny cities) have stores that sell english books, newspapers and magazines, maybe belgian ones do the same? Even if they don't have DWM you could ask if they order it for you.

To be brutally honest, seeing that cover I'm almost glad the old Doctor's aren't in the special. Paul McGann is the only one who can still pull it off, the others are way to old to believably play their respective Doctors before their regenerations and I'm not interested in timey wimey "That's why we look older" explanations.

I'll take a closer look this weekend. When is this issue is suppose to hit the book stands?

I don't think there needs to be an explanation as to why they look older. The audience knows the actors are older and will go with it.

It's a wasted opportunity by the BBC, you have 5 classic doctors that all seem to get along well with each other, that would have really translated well on film, IMO. Yes they are old but anything can be explained on Doctor Who.

I'm appalled at the prospect that none of them will even have cameos. :(

If people can summon up the suspension of disbelief to watch a series about a man with a magic box that travels in time and space they could have gone along with whatever reason the story delivered for their current appearances.

It's not like many of them will still be here for the 75th anniversary.

^ Seriously! And these human actors for crying out loud.

The most insulting thing is the idea that, for example, having some random woman wearing Tom Baker's scarf in the epsiode is a worthy substitute for actually having Baker appear.

Idiots at the BBC are really dropping the ball on the 50th.
