Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

Seeing as a couple of people have mentioned that Catherine Tate was at the table read the other day, and Piper's been officially confirmed, it seems pretty obvious that 11 runs into 10 (both of him) during the events of "Journey's End", somewhere after 10 has dropped off Jack, Martha, and Mickey, but before he drops of Rose, Jackie, and the human version of himself, and before he mind-wipes Donna.

So 11 will get two interact with at least 3 other Doctors (10a, 10b, & "Doctor Donna").

Plus, I'm still betting on appearances by David Bradley as Doctor 1, and Reece Shearsmith as Doctor 2.

I know many wouldn't like double emphasis on Ten but there is a certain appeal in seeing there needing to be two of them to compare to Eleven.

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).
But the mask is part of what we got. And we wouldn't have had Vastra if the design hadn't been tweaked, so I can live with that.

Am I the only one a little pissed we haven't seen any sign of a Dalek yet? It IS the 50th anniversary special and they were primarily responsible for the show's longevity.

Oh, don't worry. I'm certain Daleks will be part of the party.

Filming has only just begun. I'll be surprised if there are no Daleks in this.

Monday was the read through of the script

Today was filming with Tennant( and possibly Billie Piper) and a Zygon suit

Give it time.

I think she'd be much more interesting if she looked like on Original Silurian rather than a generic "Sexy Alien".

She may have been more interesting - as silly-looking as the original design was - but a character needs a face. It's as simple as that. The face of an actor is more compelling than any styrofoam mask.

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

Everytime they've shown the Silurians in the past they looked radically different. So why is it so bad that they get a more human look since they are Homo-Reptilius(sp?) as the doctor termed. I didn't particularly like the return of the Silurians but it wasn't really the first episode was suspensful as hell and pretty well done. But much like the 70s episodes with the Silurians there were issues for the ending of the deal with the doctor always trying to get the 2 races to have peace and live on the planet and then it ends in the Silurians getting destroyed or driven away. This was no different.

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

Zygons were a villain I'm kinda surprised took this long to return. I understand not bringing back the Ice Warriors. But having a bad guy that can more or less take any humanoid form they kidnap seems like an interesting range of stories and ways to really show characters depth. Big Finish with the 8th doctor had some really interesting Zygon stories a few years ago.

Daily Mail has some Anniversary filming photos from yesterday

Jonna Page's wardrobe and character might be a bit spoilerish

Yeah and that's the trouble with the original Silurian look. Shame they couldn't have made Vastra's kind more of an offshoot.

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

I have a feeling that these scenes aren't part of the main plot of the Special but show what 10 is up to when we see him again. Tennant's a big fan of the Zygons, so Moffat probably chucked one in as a favour to him.

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

The old Silurians were a million times better. The whole point of the original story is that they don't have human faces, but that doesn't mean we should treat them differently.

Giving them human faces ruins the point and just comes across as xenophobic. As if the audience shouldn't care about people who don't look like them.
