Am I the only one who'd like a more original anniversary story than just a multi-Doctor thing *again*, bringing back past Doctors?

How about a season where each episode features revisiting a past companion, ending up with a finale featuring Ian Chesterton?
I would like that Series Long idea, with each episode featuring someone different, but, I'd want it to be Doctors and Companions, in a perfect world

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

i remember seeing an interview with Tom on youtube where he said he most likely wouldn't come back for the 50th anniversary.

Can't we have both?
Agreed, I want both.

Honestly, as much as I want all of the surviving Doctors to return, I think I want William Russell to return as Ian Chesterton even more. More than anything else, I would love the dichotomy of the young-looking Doctor alongside the old companion. That and it's bloody Ian Chesterton!

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

maybe just do a multi-companion story. Ian, Jamie, Jo Grant, Peri, and Ace team up to save the Doctor or somesuch.

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

I just think the whole "anniversary=multi Doctors" thing is a really boring conceit that only worked once (The Three Doctors)...

If we could only have one Doctor return for a 50th Anniversary, I think I would pick the 8th.

And have them meet each shortly before the Doctor uses 'the moment' to end the time war. Or why/how the Doctor comes to posses it, and devel maybe a bit into his reasons for using it (yes I know why it is used, to prevent the Time Lords from ending time).
Maybe "the moment" is something that requires 2 Timelords to use, or at least activate.

Then 11 would have to, knowingly, help 8 start whatever it was he used to finish the Time War.

I, for one, would love to see any and all living actors return for the anniversary, Tom most of all. A curly wig & some makeup would do.

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

I would love to see the 8th Doctor return as well, my idea though was a flashback story told by the 11th Doctor.

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

I'm not enthusiastic about the idea of Moffat writing a multi-Doctor adventure. Based on "The Pandorica Opens," "A Good Man Goes to War," and "The Wedding of River Song," he'd write a fanwank that makes "The Five Doctors" look positively restrained.

However, if Moffat does want to do the multi-Doctor route, I'd hope he would do something original. The eleventh Doctor and a pre-"Unearthly Child" first Doctor (before he'd even left Gallifrey) would be perfect. (And I imagine that Benedict Cumberbatch could nail the irascible assholishness of a young first Doctor very well.)

On the flipside I'm still hoping for a tv movie similar to ITV's The Road to Coronation Street.

There were rumors a few months ago that Mark Gatiss was writing a script for the very thing.

I've noticed a number of people (not just here) have been suggesting a multi-Doctor adventure including a pre-"An Unearthly Child" Doctor and I've been mostly against, but I have to say the idea of Benedict Cumberbatch playing a young First Doctor is inspired. I doubt it'll happen but I would love it nonetheless.

Agreed. This also gives him some proper closure. Lifetimes later he makes the same decision again, confirming it is the right one, though perhaps with the rescue of some of his people unbeknownst to his earlier incarnation.
