I wonder if this "going into the painting" technology is how Dalek Caan got back into the war.

Well, it was certainly my impression that the timeline had been changed, but... Who knows?

What was his outline? ^
Basically it involved the TARDIS somehow getting aboard the Enterprise and the Doctor having no choice but to work with the crew despite his apprehensions about an obviously military outfit claiming to be "peaceful explorers."
Of course this would make the Starfleet is not a military fans heads explode
All the more reason to be disappointed RTD never got the chance to do it.

The name of the painting didn't change, it was just misreported. People thought the two halves of the phrase were alternate titles, when in fact they were a single continuous title.

Indeed, perhaps the true title was deliberately misreported (by the Curator?) in order to conceal Gallifrey's survival from the universe at large. It's amazing how much you can mislead people just by nuancing how you report something.
I'd buy that theory. Works for me!

If all of Gallifrey is being in that particular painting, it would explain why the Curator needs to be the most dangerous man in the universe.

^ It's also the UK's most-watched drama of 2013. I guess they'll be making it for a few more years, then.

I can't help but wonder some BBC executives being genuinely surprised at this. I've heard that several of them really didn't think it'd have that much of a reception, and I'm starting to believe it.

^ That's surprising. I could understand pessimism about the success of the cinema release, but really I think the evidence supported a prediction of healthier than usual TV viewing figures.

Re: The Day of the Doctore Review Thread (Spoilers?)

Well I can imagine them being suprised by the cinema takings, but the actual broadcast itself, it had Number 1 prgoramme of the week on the BBC (at least) written all over it. However the skeptic in me believes there might have been one or two execs at dear old Auntie Beeb that believed it wouldn't do that well. Should I be optimistic and say better start planning for the 60th.

I wouldn't be yet. Simply because much as I don't like Moffat's work as show runner, I'd want to know who's taking over before saying I believe the show will last another ten years (5 series at the current rate).

Hopefully Chris Chibnall.

(Actually, I honestly think he'd do a good job, much though fandom likes to rag on him for "Cyberwoman".)

He's a writer, director and actor, a genre fan and he has appeared in Doctor Who. Philip Hinchcliffe had no experience as a producer before Doctor Who.

I doubt the BBC is going to give the Exec Producer job to someone who has no showrunning experience and not a big sci-fi writing background (I said big). He has a few writing credits. It may have worked in the 70's but now it'd never go.
