Also, as great as it will undoubtably be to actually SEE the Time War... should that really be the subject of an anniversary for the 50 years this show has been on?
Fair point. The Time War does kind of seem like an event relating more to the new
era of DW than anything from the classic series.
But then it IS a seemingly huge and seismic event in the Doctor's life, so I guess it would make sense that it would be revisited at some point. A regular special or two-parter doesn't seem like it would really do the idea justice.
And it does involve Daleks, Gallifrey, and the Time Lords, which have all been around in the series for quite awhile.
