If true, hopefully it could mean Nine + Rose, and Ten + Donna. We can always dream...

And speaking of dreaming... C'mooooon, Paul!

Yes - Donna back would be fantastic, expecially if it means Rose is paired with Nine rather than Ten.

And I'd love McGann back as well.

Reading up on the classic villain

The Zygons have shape-shifting abilities, allowing them to replicate the appearance of another being, but they must keep the subject alive in order to use its body print.

So, anyone want to bet which returning actor won't be portraying the real deal?

Rose Tyler? Billie could play a Zygon impersonating Rose Tyler.

10th doctor? I'm sure fans would lash out at a fake doctor for the 50th anniversary.

Seeing how faithful they've been with the Zygons (and the Ice Warriors) just makes me more annoyed over what they did to the Silurians.

I loved Donna at the time, but I don't really want her back for the special. Her loud personality would probably overshadow all the other companions too much.

Oh... wodner how the body printing works with a TIme Lord? If they had one Doctor as a base, could they imitate his earlier incarnations? Or would the body print be maybe slightly downgraded, not quite accurate?

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

Why do I have a very bad feeling that David Tennant will be the only former Doctor returning.

And that he'll just be a Zygon is disguise, possibly only briefly.

Le sigh.

*See's two doctors*

Donna- OOOH THIS.IS.BONKERS! This reminds me of the time my girlfriend Stephanie thought she saw her boyfriend making out with another man. Turns out it was his twin brother!

Clara- You had to travel with this?

Donna- OI!!!

Clara- Ow my tiny ears!

Shame Donna won't meet Amy

I'm sure there would be Zygons. After all, if you don't include the Yeti, Zygons are the biggest monsters in classic Doctor Who that are not Daleks, Cybermen, Sontarans, Silurians, Autons or Ice Warriors.

The Great Intelligence, Ice Warriors, and now the Zygons? I love it!

I've never been a big fan of the Silurians, so I'm not so annoyed (although I'll agree that the black-eyed mask was much better than what we actually got). That being said, I certainly understand your frustration.

Especially since the SFX people actually made up this originally in S5: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-R8-s4_E7iL...0/silurian.jpg

Wow, that is a great mock-up. Pity they didn't go with that.

Cool... a Zygon... They look a bit stupid in this day and age though! Lets hope they are imagined on screen in a modern way though :-/

I can't wait to see the Loch Ness monster

I had a similar thought, of course that would mean if McCoy or Davison or whoever turned up it wouldn't be the real Doctor...but still they'd be there!

as for companions, frankly I'd prefer Donna over Rose but given how Donna's story ended that's really not likely.
