Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

Maybe it's me but I've always felt the 8th Doctor is more loved by fandom than TPTB. Maybe both loved and dismissed by different parties because he's done so much Who outside of TV?

However, if Moffat does want to do the multi-Doctor route, I'd hope he would do something original.

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.
Yeah, I've been on pre-"Unearthly Child" bandwagon for fifteen months now.

I'm not sure how the idea of Cumberbatch as the young-young Doctor came from, but it struck me suddenly this afternoon and when I thought about it I could see it. And, oddly, not because of his Sherlock work. More like the way he carries himself and talks in interviews.

I think that a lot of the love for the eighth Doctor has nothing to do with anything the Doctor has done and everything to do with what fans assume the Doctor's done. Fandom widely assumes that the eighth Doctor is the one that fought the Time War, that burned Gallifrey, and destroyed the Daleks. That assumption colors the way the Doctor is seen. Suddenly, he's become a far more important figure in Doctor Who history than his ninety minutes of screen time (or, for that matter, the evidence) would suggest.

Okay, maybe I haven't seen a number of people saying this rather I've just seen you saying this a number of times.

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

Another vote for a '"Where are they now?" companion special. Or what Allyn said. Its about time for an origin story.

They 'multiple Doctors' and "The Doctors greatest enemies join forces" stories have been done to death.

Well, they could always put a wig on Sylvester McCoy and dress him up like 6.

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

I'm not enthusiastic about the idea of Moffat writing a multi-Doctor adventure.
I hate to say this but...in all honesty a multi-Doctor and/or companion and/or familiar enemy(ies) story is fanwank, and nobody right now, IMO, can hold a candle to RTD for writing fanwank. If they go that route, I'm hoping RTD is the one who writes it, not Moffat.

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

Well. . . they could always mix it up a bit and have 11 face off against a mystery time lord who turns out to be a pre-Hartnell incarnation of the Doctor. Minds blown! Excitement abounds!

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.
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.
I half wrote a fanfic which involved the moment requiring heaps of energy to operate, but the daleks destroy the power source. Out of options, the doctor plunges a knife into his chest, and uses the power of the regeneration to activate it. He crawls into the Tardis where he sees his new face and realises what he's truly done.

I thought he said that he couldn't see it happening, not that he'd say no if asked.
