Re: Official BBC Tweet (SPOILERS)

I'm hoping for a surprise classic monster appearance (Zygons!).

They can do that now as there's the actors and all to advertise with.

Eight being pulled out of Time War and regenerating in some appropriate twist would be another cool moment. It would just have to be part of the Time War somehow, but maybe it would be best to have it just as a sly reference, to keep the references to past balanced.

I still expect Daleks in the anniversary special for one simple reason -- I don't see Moffat passing up the chance to have a Dalek come at the audience in 3-D. And if he did he'd kick himself in the future when someone else, like David Yates, does.

That'll be after the third instalment of the Cicero films is finished, right?

Underwhelmed - the previous incarnation and the chav assistant, way less than I was hoping.

At least Catherine Tate hasn't been mentioned...thank heaven for small mercies.

The only official word we've had on length from the BBC is the Toy Fair poster in February, which was 60 minutes.

Due to the 3-D nature of the special and its post-production demands, I think 60 minutes is a credible length.

However.

I imagine this could be a situation like "Journey's End" where it's written for a certain length, and if it goes over it goes over. It's not like the schedule in November is set in stone yet. If the special runs 75 minutes, the schedule can still accommodate that.

Yeah, I doubt we'll get 90 mins but I won't be surprised in the least if it runs a fair bit over 60

It's also possible that the extremely negative reaction to the length of 60 minutes got them to reconsider. Let's hope that 90 minutes is correct!

I'd be slightly suprised if there weren't any appearances by classic doctors. Not that I have any personal attachment to the old stuff, it just seems appropriate for such a milestone. Maybe they're keeping that for a surprise and hoping this "lesser" reveal keeps us busy for a while.
