The problem with having past Doctors appearing is some are too old or too dead.
Some sort of Tribbles mixing old and new futage would work.

Plenty of ways around both obstacles. They could go the Tribbles route.

Or, they wouldn't have to include all of the past Doctors, pick and choose. Some of them appear close enough to be workable. And there's always the Time Crash explanation.

I'm still not understanding the problem with Davison. Did they do a fantastic job of makeup in Time Crash or something? Several people hae said things about him being all wrinkly. His hair's a bit thinner, and he's wider, but, his face looked pretty much the same to me, I didn't see all these wrinkles or a big change in his facial appearance

Quite a bit of work was done on Davison for Time Crash. Just take a look at him in the interviews on any random DVD and you'll see.

Oh, OK, it just seemed weird compared with what I saw oncreen, thanks, I'll check into that

Not as easy as it seems. For Trials and Tribbleatiosn they could source the original series scenes from 35mm film - if not quite the same stock as they were using on DS9, then still something close.
For Who, the quality gap between modern HD video and the 625 PAL line video of Pertwee onwards, let alone the the even lower quality telerecordings available for the first two Doctors, would be immense.

^^ Good points, not to mention the 3D factor as well.

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

It's funny. Any other time and fans would be thrilled and excited as hell at the chance to see Tennant return and interact with Smith's Doctor.

But now we're all just like "eh, whatever. What else you got?" Lol

I said on another forum that I'd use that to my advantage and film the Matt Smith on grainy film or black and white or cruddy video depending on which era he was in if they went the DS9 route.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I am pretty excited to see Tennant return and interact with Smith. I am pretty disappointed we aren't at least getting someone else from the old show, but I'll live.

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 can only say that you are wrong. The inclusion of Sarah Jane Smith is all the proof that is needed.

Well Smith did say a part of the special would be in a slightly different style or format than the usual DW episode, so perhaps that's what he was referring to.

Not to mention all the classic villains that have shown up during the last 6 years of the show.

That does bring up an interesting question though: Had Doctor Who premiered back in 2005 and not had the previous series to back it up, would it have lasted?
