Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

The only reason I used multiple universes is to explain why Doc 4 looks older (and whoever else). I don't like the shorted time-differential from TIME CRASH. If I can come up with another reason why previous doctors look older, I'd use that. The problem still remains the same, stop the Big Crunch from happening.

Why not? It's simple, it can be explained in one short sentence, it works, it deals with the problem without lingering on it. What's not to like?

Another thing I'd like to see is a multi-Doctor special where the Doctor meets a future incarnation, like "The Next Doctor" but for real. Like, I imagine Matt Smith announcing that he wants to leave the show. They decide that his departure will be in the middle of the season instead of at the end. This way, they would have to cast the replacement somewhat in advance. Early in the season (like episode 1 or 3), they show the 11th Doctor meet the 12th Doctor. Then you'd have the regeneration sometime around episode 7. Then, after some other adventures, towards the end of the season, you see the multi-Doctor story again but this time from the 12th Doctor's perspective.
For a bizarre, mad moment when we first learned about Jenna Louise-Coleman being the new companion, I half imagined that was exactly what Moffat had in mind for the 50th anniversary - that the amnesia-ridden, ultra-mysterious, extremely-fast-talking/thinking "Clara" turns out to be a Watcher-like projection (think Cho-Je in Planet of the Spiders) that Eleven regenerates into at the end of the 50th Anniversary episode! And of course, keep it ultra-secret like the River/Melody reveal to just blindside everybody!

Re: 50TH Anniversary rumor

Someone had a link on here a couple of years ago to an online comic called 'The Ten Doctors', see if you can finds it, it's pretty good. Also Babelcolour's efforts are noteworthy as well.

I'm pretty sure you're thinking of this one. Excellent read.

When? In Time Crash? I don't think you've quite understood what Moffat was getting at. The two Doctors being in close proximity "shorted out the time differential" so that the fifth Doctor aged rapidly in order to "catch up" with his future self. The fifth Doctor looks the age he would look now if he had lived to that point in the timeline without regenerating.

Strange how nobody's mentioned that at a Q&A after his new play last week, Eccles said he has "unfinished business" and "more to do" with Dr Who...

This may make sense of the production delays on the seventh season.

Eccleston would want to see a script before committing to anything. Could the reason for Moffat's delays in writing the Christmas episode and his episodes in the back half of the season be down to having to write the Anniversary Special script early so that potential actors can read it, make notes, and decide if this is something they want to do?

That's a surprising change of attitude from him. I hope he does agree to doing a 50th anniversary special, it would be amazing to see the 3 modern Doctors working together.

The fact that he didn't kick someone in the nuts for mentioning Doctor Who in an interview after the play surpises me given past behavior. I'm skeptical but it'd be amazing if he did something.
