So, basically because the actors look older, you'd dump them? Wow, what a caring fellow you must be. My god, they have wrinkles and grey hair! We don't want to see that! Sheesh.

Just wait until you get older, maybe someone will stick you in a closet so they don't have to look at you?

These are the actors that helped make the show what it is today.

And, they can be included wisely. Obviously if you jam the story with too many it could be bad. But, I trust Moffatt and figure he'll work some of them in in such away that works for the story.

Mr Awe
Except we're talking about characters that we know what they looked like when they "died" and they don't look like that now.
Exactly, that's why I don't want the bakers or Davidson back.

I honestly don't see the problem at all with Davison (Note the lack of a second "D"), he was completely recognizable in Time Crash his hair's a bit thinner and he's a bit heavier, no big deal. The Bakers, yea, they've changed quite a bit, but, give them wigs (no, not, big curly haired blonde and bunette wigs, just grey, with close cropped curly hair would be fine. Wouldn't want to make clowns ot of them) and give them their costumes (Colin could wear the solid blue coat, no need to give him the Technicolor coat) and they would totally be recognizable

I doubt Baker would be going off what he looked like the lst time I saw him on the telly - it would be a sad sight like when they trot out the Star Trek actors in their old uniforms.

Time differential.
EXCEPT.... that would have to include 11 and 10 together, so 10 would look "older", but from the photos from on-set, he's not in any aged make-up.

Wellll he could use his sonic. It's Doctor Who alright? The point is that the whole thing can be solved in one sentence and it only has to make sense emotionally and dramatically but certainly not nitpickingly.

We never got a good look at the sixth before he did. We just know he still had the hair, and perhaps had shrunk....

Not so much, no. As I said, the actors that made the show what it is today are being included, save the one who didn't agree to appear. The previous incarnation of Who has very little to do with this one.
I disagree, if the classic show had made a wrong turn and was canceled in 79 vs 89 lets say, would we have NO new series today, or at least something quite different. The classic series did build to where the new series took off from. This is the 50th anniversary special in which there was 8 years of the new series and 26 years of the classic series, and to not have any representation at all from those 26 years (beyond a returning monster) is really a crime for us long time Doctor Who fans ( I have been a fan since 83 myself). I don't want all the classic doctors just give me one of them,and at best, 2 Classic doctors. Mcgann and McCoy could still pull it off with out the 'time differential' excuse.

He shrunk because Mel was feeding him nothing but Carrot Juice and had the TARDIS rewired to be powered solely by the exercise bike

I think it would compromise the quality of the story. Yes it would be nice to get all the doctor back together, but the quality of the story would be poor and as I said, it would be overcrowded.
Why are you stuck on ALL of them. I'd be happy if the classic Doctors were represented. That doesn't mean all of them necessarily.

Oh for goodness sake, you're making me sound like a mean bastard (ok I am a mean bastard, but... :P).
I just paraphrased your own arugments.

I just think people should realize that of course the actors have grown older. That's natural. But, they shouldn't be excluded from the anniversary special because of it.

Seriously?! Wow, you hear some crazy things on the Internet!

So, if the classic series hadn't happened we'd still have the current Doctor Who series?

Yep, it's actually very simple. And, viewers will know the real reason anyway!

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

I'd certainly like to see the other Doctors, and I'd be disappointed if we didn't see them. But I'm not going to get all angry and pissed off and call for Moffat's head if it doesn't happen.

That's an element of fandom that I just don't understand at all.

To be quite honest, Davidson along with Hartnel is my least favourite doctor, so there's already some bias there, I will admit. I'm not saying he's not unrecognisable, but he's changed significantly. Oh, and that time crash, not really a big fan of that at all. I hate little charity 5 minute clips, I like full episodes, and the story was boring. The explanation for him being there was shitty too, if Davidson managed to get on the new tardis and aged about 3 or so years, where are his companions, and surely this would have affected the tardis's appearance. With Collin, Id probably use either that red and purple coat he used in that plat or something in the nineties, or a dulled down version of his regular one. But really, I don't want too many doctors coming back. Two-four is what I want.

I hate that stupid time differential excuse. But yeah, McCoy and McGann could easily pull it off, which is why I'd maybe even quite like them to come back.

Colin. And yes. Yes, I do absolutely and without reservation want Colin Baker back.

I'm not sure what to think right now. You're not only replying to, but QUOTING, a post which provides the correct spelling of the actor, and you screw it up again.

Then "Collin" and "Hartnel" ... then throw in your complete disrespect for fans of the classic series, shown in one post after another, and I'm beginning to wonder if you're just some troll who is here hoping to stir up trouble? I hope not, but time (and the mods) will tell.
