Rather than a multi-doctor story, for the 50th anniversary maybe they should just have the story of how a younger first doctor left gallify etc..
I'm sure Gallifrey will get a mention but I'd rather they not tell that story. It would have to include Susan, The Hand Of Omega and the validium that would complicate matters.

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

Ok, how about this:

A young first Doctor and young Master in there academy days, they go off on some grand adventure off world, during which it opens the Doctor eyes and makes him want to get out and explore the universe, and for the Master, something happens (besides the drums LOL) that sets him down his dark path..

This way we don't have to worry about Susan, the Hand of Omega and other stuff, and don't have to totally unravel the mystery of the Doctor.

There has to be the drums, but maybe not so loud as to be driving him mad yet. Maybe what makes the Doctor want to go explore brings the drums to the surface.

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

I think I would rather see them celebrate the series instead of giving us some story from before the series started. One of the things that made Rememberance Of The Daleks so great was the little easter egg references to series overthe years.

I just can't imagine them doing the special without the current Doctor in there.

First Doctor, Current Doctor & The Master during his initial decent into evil would make an interesting dynamic though. 11 avoids letting his former self know who he is but confronts & warns off The Master with the knowledge of his future deeds and failure who then figures out who 11 is, poisoning the friendship between the two Timelords. If you can work in the Daleks as the framing story you have the two most notable villains, which seems perfect for such a special.

Can't imagine Cumberbatch would age into Hartnell. How about Tom Hiddleston sporting his Loki hair?

To be slightly more realistic, I'm thinking Harry Treadaway or Douglas Booth.

Good Idea, perhaps the first Doctor is inspired by 11 (not knowing who he is) to explore the universe, so essentially the Doctor inspired himself to leave Gallifry LOL

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

A young Doctor origin story is something I'm not that interested in, TBH.

Personally, I'd go with a Trials and Tribble-ations / Back to the Future Part II style insertion of the current Doctor into past Doctor adventures.

For technical reasons that won't work. The video resolution of the old series would look like crap at high-def, especially when they digitally edited the eleventh Doctor into the proceedings.

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

For the anniversary special, they pretty much have to include a past Doctor. I also love the idea of past companions, and that too is pretty much a requirement! If they don't do it for the 50th, the pretty much won't do it.

I'm hoping that this Tom Baker rumor is true!

I love the idea of including a young Hartnell Doctor. If Cumberbatch portrays him, that's too perfect!

Yeah, that's what I thought. I know Spearhead From Space and the TV Movie were shot on film so they could use those but they're not the greatest choices.

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

I'm easy to please. I'll sett for McCoy with Ace. Perhaps Eleven could do what the Doctor is never supposed to do and reenter his own past, and run into Seven with Ace, while they are out on some adventure.

Of course that would please me, but it might not do much for those Who fans who didn't think much of McCoy (and I know there are a few).

Yea, I really like McCoy's sinister manipulative portrayal, but, he is just barely behind Colin Baker in favoritism, I believe.

I like all the Doctors, personally, it's a shame a couple/few of them are so unpopular
