Re: Finale discussion thread (spoilerifictitle insided) *SPOILERS WITH
I like that premise but I would only find that effective with an established, already known Doctor, even if it's The Eighth Doctor. While I'm not completely against John Hurt being a forgotten Doctor, I wouldn't want him to be utilized in this manner because the emotional impact is not as strong, especially for the 50th anniversary.
This premise would be crazy effective for the ninth Doctor as a story that leads into "Rose."
