Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

Yeah, you have a point. Smith wants to film the episode live and he wants Billie Pipper to return, Pipper said "the ship sailed" for her time on the show, Tennant says that Pipper will not return, and is unsure he will, and I've heard no word from Mcgann recently. Although, I've seen designs for a sonic screwdriver he'd use if he came back. Moffat also said he'd change the costume bit. Also, for those of you who though a pre unearthly child 1st doctor would return for the episode, your both right and wrong!

Well Smiths the main doctor now, so he'll be in it for sure. Ok, if you don't think Pual and David will return, who else is there? Ecclesten will not return, that's fairly odvious (there may be hope, but I highly doubt it). Mcoy could come back. Apart from that, it's only Pual and David who have not aged to badly. They may add davidson, I hope against it and doubt it though.

Also, I have a feeling John Barrowman will return, he may not, but seeing he's become a big part of the modern doctor who mythos, I think he'll return.
I just watched Time Crash again, and I'm not seeing all these wrinkles you're talking about. His face is a bit fuller, and hair is a bit thinner, but, little change other than that. Where are you getting all these wrinkles from? It's been 28 years since Davison was the Doctor and he's barely changed, you will be very lucky to change so little in the next 28 years

Also, multiple Doctors and Companions are only Fan Guesses/hopes. There is no confirmation of this. There may not be any returning Doctors or Companions.
Ok, I admit he has aged really well, but he still looks a bit too old for my taste. The fith doctor I know and love (ok, not much, not much at all) had bushy blonds hair, not thin whitish blondish hair. And you can just plainly tell he's aged. Besides, he returned once. Mcgann, Tennant, Smith, and Mcoy or Ecclesten would make it work. besides, maybe just Smith Tennant and Mcgann are ennougth. Also, read my prvious thread

I think the clone thing will be how they bring various doctors back, but answer me this. If they simply clonned them, why would they have to be older than their prime? After all, it'd be nothing to do with time or anything. Just coppys.
Well, its not that I'm attempting to fanfic or anything, it was just a possible alternative to the Timecrash aging effect.

One possibility is that the DNA sample they acquired was damaged, so just like Jurassic Park scientists, they had to fill in the damaged segments with genetic material from some other species. Perhaps it was part of someones experiment to bring back the Timelords?

Or we could just say screw it and bring back Tom or one of the others to play another character entirely?

While your explanation is good and sounds like something Moffat would do, I still think it would be a bit cheesy having an army of old men with big scarfs and hats. I say lets just renember the older actors as how they were, not how they are. Does not apply to Paul, Christiphor, David, Smith, or maybe not Silvestor because they've not ages as badly since their last time on screen. Would not enjoy them bringing ack Tom Baker to play say....Dave who gets killed at the end. Would not be so bad if they just used a younger actor to play various doctors like they did in the five doctors, but I wouldn't like that eigther.

It's worth pointing out that even Time Crash was made half a decade ago...

Yea, I guess it has been that long ago. Still, that's 23 years for so little change in someone in their 30s to when they are in their 50s isn't bad aging at all, IMHO

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

I know they aren't going to want to repeat past specials, but I think having another "Five Doctors" would be brilliant, give us Seven up till the Present Doctor all working together, I'd also love each Doctor to have his companion along: Seven with Ace, Eight with Grace, Nine and Rose, Ten with Martha (or Donna), and Eleven with Clara (or whatever her name ends up being).

That would be my ideal lineup, at least.

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

I just read an article with Tennant being interviewed, which you can see here...

http://blastr.com/2012/08/tennant-on...50th-ive-1.php

It doesn't say he's coming back for the 50th, but it doesn't say he isn't.

I think that would be overkill myself, and too much like the crazy and overcrowded Journey's End.

I'd rather just team up Smith with Tennant and maybe one classic Doctor like McCoy (who frankly doesn't look all that different than he did in the '96 movie), and watch those three interact and go on a fun little adventure together.

Leave all the hundreds of companions out of it.

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

Maybe, but I thought 'The Five Doctors' managed to juggle everyone and their companions and still make a watchable special. Granted it's only my opinion, but all it needs is some good writing and giving everyone at least one stand out moment and I think it will be able to please everyone.

No doubt the tabloids will be camped outside for when they film the 50th Anniversary episode(s) ready to take pictures. Of who will likely be in it.

So no doubt who's in it will leak long before the episode airs.

BBC will make an official announcement when the special starts filming if any previous Doctors are returning.

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

Agreed. I would be very surprised if the BBC doesn't heavily advertise which Doctors are returning.

Companions (at least some of them), on the other hand, might be kept a secret...
