McGann is saying (by not saying) that there is still a chance he'll be asked. He talks about that being based on whether Ecklestone (yes I know it's spelled wrong) takes the part. Now that he hasn't, maybe 8 can get in there (since it seems there was a script written with 9 in it, it can be changed to 8).
Where did you hear this?

I want to make sure it's factual before I start getting my hopes up.

Note that some of what I said above is speculation by inference of what McGann said.

That was nothing more than McGann being a "glass half-full" type, taking that and reading "there's still a chance" from it is a pretty ludicrous leap.

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

Maybe, but the fact that CE did meet with SM, SM had to show him a script or an outline of the story. So a story with a third doctor did exist (Let's face it, we always new #10 would be in the 50th no matter what). Since CE again has disappointed Dr Who fans (notice I said Dr Who fans, not CE fans), the story with 9 included may be able to be changed with minimal effort to include 8. UNLESS the story heavily involved all three of the doctors knowing Rose and Rose knowing 9 & 10.

I'm a Doctor Who fan, I'm not disappointed.

I like the idea of McGann but to have 10 11 and ... 8 just seems unlikely. Maybe if they had the other classic actors involved but otherwise I think a lot of viewers might be asking "Doctor Who?".

Maybe, but I bet just as many people would be confused if it were McCoy or Davison showing up as well.

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

Of course the get out for not using any of the classic Doctors is that they're effectively Time Locked somehow by virtue of existing prior to the last great Time war (of course one has to ignore Time Crash!)

I still think one of the biggest missed opportunities for inserting an old Doc in NuWho was Love and Monsters. The Doctor Elton saw as a child was cloaked in shadow, half seen, and it would have been so easy to slot any of them in there, even those who look nothing like their classic selves any more)

Unfortunately it was probably a bit too early in the revival to do that.

The original plan 'could' have been to have 9 and Rose and not 10 since he just recently left the show. When CE declined the offer, then they changed it to 10 and Rose.

Could be but I doubt it, an anniversary special without super popular super fan DT? Moffat may have been tarred and feathered

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

Here is how I would use Tennant. I might have him as the clone Doctor, perhaps on his way to become the Valeyard. He is with Rose after all. Having him as a threat that Smith must overcome might be interesting.

In typical superhero tema us, they start as rivals/enemies first.

Turn it on its head, and have Matt regenerate as the battle concludes.

Sextoy Doctor must never been seen or heard from ever again. It's the Janeway lizard babies of Doctor Who.

The metacrisis (Lord, how I hate that "word") Doctor has one heart, ages and cannot regenerate.

Also, fuck that whole Realdoll story.

While I would prefer the "real" tenth Doctor, the dramatic potential of the Doctor getting a good look at the life he could have had if he had settled down with Rose-or anyone else- to live a normal human life is pretty enticing.

I'm looking forward to seeing how Smith's Doctor handles being around Rose, especially given all he knows about how that's going to pan out (always assuming it is Ten/Rose from S2 and not 10.5 and Rose from Pete's world.)

I personally hope that any 11 / Rose interation is flippant and brief.
