Except we're talking about characters that we know what they looked like when they "died" and they don't look like that now.
We never got a good look at the sixth before he did. We just know he still had the hair, and perhaps had shrunk....
He shrunk because Mel was feeding him nothing but Carrot Juice and had the TARDIS rewired to be powered solely by the exercise bike

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

Trust me, I'm not a troll, I'm just a big doctor who fan.

For the record, I love the classic series, I love Collin Bakers doctor, Patrick Troughtan and the Cybermen are awesome.

But the main problem with some of these old doctors coming back is that we know what they looked like just before they "died", so them coming back looking older then they were in their "deaths" would screw up the continuity. Although this time crash aging excuse is a valid one, personally I don't really like it.

And besides, despite out opinions, it looks unlikely it will happen. Although I am dying to see McGann back, I'm starting to doubt it ill happen, despite Eccleston confirming that he won't take part. Despite any of out opinions, it looks lie we're just having a Smith Tennant team up. Now personally I'm fine with that.

*Ok, even if the excuse is good enough, do you really want Collin Baker back wearing that awful coat as an 80 or something year old man?
YES!?

I don't have to find The Doctor sexy to like him. That is such a New Who ideology.

i'd be HUGELY disappointed if we don't get any classic Doctors but I assume we'll get a few. I think Ten will be the main companion but we'll get a few nice cameos from the older ones.

Do you even watch the same show as us? This is the series where we've just had two Great Intelligence stories in a row, with upcoming Ice Warriors, Cybermen and Zygon stories.

Doctor Who did not start with David Tennant. I can't believe the disrespect shown to it from posters in this thread. "Collin"?, "Hartnel"? "Troughtan", "Davidson"? This better be a wind-up.

Try harder, and Colin Baker is younger than Sylvester McCoy.

For the umpteenth time, it's COLIN and it's TROUGHTON. Also, DAVISON!

We've already explained that. And, it's not an excuse. Everyone ages.

Nah, you sound like a troll to me.

Older, actually. But only by two months.

Yes, but Colin has aged much more than McCoy.

Psssst....per your own information, Colin was born two months earlier, making him indeed 2 months older

Colin will be 70 on June 8th, while McCoy will still be 69 until August 20 when he turns 70

Lets look at it this way, 7,8,9 and 11 have never appeared in a story with another doctor so we at least need those 4. LOL Ecc is out so lets hope for McCoy and McGann!

Well, to be fair, the current incarnation of Doctor Who started with Eccelston, not Tennant. I'm quite sad that we'll never see more of Nine. As for the name drops of old villains, it couldn't matter in the least. I've never seen the stories that these big-bads originated from and I'm still able to enjoy the current series as presented.

That's a good thing, because the old Doctor Who wasn't particularly good. Additionally, the fans of that show are such a vanishingly small group of people that they can be safely ignored, for the most part.

Doctor Who is a children's show. It makes very little sense to craft an anniversary special that ignores the primary target audience and the vast majority of the viewers.

Fighting words.

Ah, that old canard again. It's a family show. I've just seen an episode from 1964 where a jailer offers the female companion to go free if she sleeps with him, so I'd say it's always been made with a broad audience in mind.
