Where did you see that? I saw "Another character is rumored to be returning" and then they went on to talk about the returning monster we already know about. I Read back over several paragraphs excepting "Character" to be a Companion

Re: BARROWMAN!!!!

We keep hearing rumors, but there's just not a lot that's going to fit into a 60 minute special.

I understand there's some kind of funding issue that leaves the series future in doubt, but they would have done better to hedge their bet for an anniversary series 8 where each episode could focus on something related to one past Doctor (13 episodes - 11 Doctors with two bookends to start and finish the series). I am really shocked this is not what was done; I don't think Moffat would be opposed to a grand epic season of Doctor Who history even if it was after the 50th year. What better story would he have to tell for Series 8?

Moffat himself said the other day that the 60 minute "Rumour" is "Rubbish".

Re: BARROWMAN!!!!

Sorry guys, I mis-read that bit about the guest appearance. Way too many "Specials" next year. I got them mixed up.

If he actually is in the anniversary special , then I hope his part is just a brief cameo.

Re: BARROWMAN!!!!

So, he said on Twitter: "Re 50th I didn't say in what capacity or what medium so stay calm and carry on . Jb"

This has me thinking that he's been approached to do the ninth Doctor chapter of Destiny of the Doctor with AudioGo/Big Finish. It's unlikely Eccleston or Piper would do it. Eliminate them, and Barrowman makes the most sense.

Didn't Eccelston say something not long ago, that left the impression he might be ameniable to Audio?

Well he was on Graham Norton's radio show this morning and said he wasn't allowed to talk about it as it got him into trouble. Don't think the readers for DOTD are top-secret info.

I worked with marketing copy for the fifth one recently. Title, plot, and reader were all, at the time, TBA. Yes, there was a big splash of information on the first, but after that there's less and less information from AudioGo. So, no, it doesn't surprise me one iota that people would ask Barrowman to dial back his enthusiasm if he's the reader of the ninth Doctor audio when they're being less than forthcoming about Destiny of the Doctor.

Re: BARROWMAN!!!!

We'll find out soon enough since they'll be shooting in a month and unless it's 100% Studio Bound things will leak. (Actually even if is I wouldn't be surprised if the people who usually turn up at location shoots start hanging out in front of the studio to see who's going in.)

That would make sense. I was wondering who they were going to get to read it; was thinking they might have to bring in Noel Clarke to do it.

Moffat says a lot of things, and a few even turn out to be true.

Given that he hasn't even finished the script, last I heard, for the anniversary special, anything else beyond that is just in his head at this point. So, I'd take it with a grain of salt. There could be anniversary stuff during season 8, but even he's not sure of it yet.

Re: BARROWMAN!!!!

Just BTW he was specifically responding to a question apout appearing in the 50th Anniversary Special when he said he couldn't talk about it, on the radio. His sister Carol was also there and she added that he'd got in trouble with the BBC for what he said on the TV.

So not an audiobook then. (Though that doesn't mean he won't be doing that too.)
