What else is coming?

Am I missing somethign obvious, but this seems to suggest something else is coming for the 50th? Any ideas?

We’re delighted to confirm a new series of Doctor Who has been commissioned and the show’s lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, has revealed he’s already plotting a brand new run of adventures for the Doctor.

But way before that hits our screens we have a huge amount to look forward to. Your calendars should already have a big red circle around 23 November because that’s when the TARDIS returns in the frankly Earth-shattering adventure that celebrates half a century of Doctor Who. This 3D special stars Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman with David Tennant and John Hurt, seen briefly at the end of The Name of the Doctor. Billie Piper returns alongside Jemma Redgrave, Joanna Page… and the Zygons!

If you can’t wait until then you can see special videos about the special – filming at the Tower of London and in Trafalgar Square. We’ve a new gallery for the 50th plus a news item on the cast.

Later this year the BBC also premieres An Adventure in Space and Time, the brilliant drama written by Mark Gatiss that looks at the genesis of Doctor Who. If this video location report is anything to go by, we’re in for a memorable insight into the show’s origins.

And given that this year’s Christmas Special will be rounding off such a spectacular year we’re sure it will kick off the Doctor’s next half century in style! But that’s not all. Big plans are being put in place that will well and truly celebrate the Doctor’s half-centenary. Make sure you check back for some exciting announcements!

Re: What else is coming?

The rumor mill is Paul McGann. I haven't been paying attention to those rumors because I thought it was just random speculation in this very forum last week.

Don't get me wrong, I would be thrilled if it was true but I'm not holding my breath.

Ok that'd be interesting. I wonder if they'd insist on a wig/frock coat or if he'd be allowed to use his newer look?

Re: What else is coming?

Depends on the context of the story(s), I suspect. Considering he only made the one appearance, they may want to stay pretty close to it for those who only know of him from a couple shots in the show and maybe looking him up online. Changing his appearance drastically (if it is a one-off and not a series of 'webisodes') kind of undercuts bringing him back at all.

First picture I get from Google image search with "paul mcgann doctor" is this one: http://onceuponageek.com/images/doctorwho_mcgann2a.jpg

So they might as well use that look or some variation of it.

Re: What else is coming?

One can only hope (since we're already dreaming) that if this rumor is true, than maybe India Fisher will make an appearance, too. But that's probably asking for too much.

I would think if they used a non TV companion then Sherdian Smith would be the more likely though I doubt we'll get either.

^People might think they were watching Jonathan Creek though

I can see positives and negatives for either outfit, perhaps some kind of halfway house between the two?

Also, the fact that Paul McGann is always pulled out for these kinds of rumours makes me doubt that story.

The big something else could also be the 50th Anniversary celebrations taking place in London on the Anniversary weekend.

There are rumors of missing episode discoveries -- plural -- that were being held back from release specifically for the anniversary.
