I completely agree. I've been saying for ages how awesome it would be for old Ian to appear alongside the young looking Doctor (first Tennant, then Smith). The juxaposition would be interesting, especially to see Ian's reaction to the more hyperactive Doctor as oppose to his Doctor.

Alas, it seems we have to settle for a cameo appearance in An Adventure in Space and Time.
Well, while they were doing that AAiS&T cameo, you never know, they may have filmed a little something extra for the Anniversary Special. It would be most awesome to see him, since he's the earliest cast member of the show still alive (Aside from Carol Ann Ford, who will hopefully be with us for quite some years to come) and it would almost be a crime not to include him in some capacity.

I agree entirely. William Russell was actually in the episode that the anniversary special is celebrating and is a lot more relevant than David Tennant or Billie Piper.

Re: Radio Times Claims a Classic Doctor Might Be in 50th Anniversary

CLARA: I don't understand. You say he's not you, but he IS you. He told me he WAS you.

ELEVEN: He WAS me, but he is not me. It was a different time. The Last Great Time War changed me. Time always does. But that time, it was by choice.

[PAN off ELEVEN and CLARA, and FADE to the PANOPTICON OF THE TIME LORDS on Gallifrey, splendiferous in its ancient glory.]

ELEVEN [VOICE OVER]: I had run from my people, my home on Gallifrey. Sometimes they brought me back, made me do their dirty work. But there was a price to be paid for all my little victories. And the time had come for that price to be paid.

[On a dias, the Time Lord HIGH COUNCIL stands, as a man enters the chamber. It is the EIGHTH DOCTOR, dressed as you'd expect, but clothes torn. Disheveled. He's been through a massive, epic battle... And lost.]


EIGHT: I couldn't stop it. War is here. The Daleks--

HIGH COUNCIL MEMBER #1: Doctor, we gave you information. We gave you the knowledge to defeat them.

EIGHT: You gave me NOTHING! Ever since you sent me to destroy the Daleks on Skaro, you wanted me to be your eyes. Your hands. Your voice. [A BEAT]. Your scapegoat. But I've never been what you wanted. And now there is war. The Daleks, the Cybermen, the Eternals, and ten billion other species will be at war throughout time and space.

HIGH COUNCIL MEMBER #2: Then they will fight. And we will observe.

HIGH COUNCIL MEMBER #3: And manipulate. And survive.

EIGHT: THEN YOU WILL BE DESTROYED.

[The whole council is taken aback by the Doctor's words]

EIGHT: This time is different. This war will know no bounds. They will fight to your doorstep, and they will destroy Gallifrey. All this time, fighting to stop it, I've already lost... [A pause, as the Doctor considers friends and companions he's just lost] The ripples have already become waves. And the waves will wash upon your shores until nothing remains.

HIGH COUNCIL MEMBER #1: Then Doctor, you will protect us. We are not warriors.

EIGHT: And neither am I. None of us are.

[ANOTHER PAUSE as the Doctor reluctantly admits his own conclusion]

EIGHT: ...BUT I CAN BE.

Wrote this over a coffee break. I believe in the Moff. And I wanna see McGann.

^That's really good. Maybe the High Council forced a regeneration, like with the Second Doctor, to make the Doctor the sort of warrior they wanted.

I agree with that. The opposition of an older Ian to a much a younger Doctor would be priceless.

However, that doesn't mean I wouldn't mind more classic characters popping up!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't there a comic that featured Ian interacting Eleven?

Yup, the just-concluded Doctor Who Magazine story, "Hunters of the Burning Stone."

And though you never know, it seems unlikely that DWM would have been allowed to do that plot if there was going to be something similar in the anniversary special.

If they miss the opportunity for good (he's old!), you really have to wonder why! This is the perfect opportunity!

Screw that. With the right make up he could play the First Doctor. He can certainly do the voice.

Relevant to who, exactly?

Though I would agree that an aged companion meeting a young and vibrant Doctor is very fertile ground. An extended cameo would be interesting on its face, regardless of one's knowledge of first Doctor stories.

William Russell appeared in the very first 1963 episode. David Tennant and Billie Piper appeared in 2005, and were last seen in 2010.

Russell would definitely be more relevant to the anniversary than those 2. It'd be pretty odd if we didn't get at least one classic series actor, what with the anniversary of the classic series being celebrated.

More fuel to the fire regarding the possibility of Eight returning (hopefully in his original outfit).
