You think they'd sack her over this picture?
They sacked the person who leaked the photos of the TARDIS from AAISAT.

AAISAT?

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

io9 has noticed the John Hurt rumor.

This is probably my favorite sentence:

While I can kind of imagine Steven Moffat doing something like that, if only to piss off insane fans like myself with retroactive renumbering, it's worth stressing that there's no clear source for this rumor at present, and even if there were, it would still be wise to take it with a grain of salt.
I've watched fans on Gallifrey Base go into meltdown mode since the rumor surfaced, and there's a part of me that hopes the rumor is true just to see widescale nuclear destruction in fandom.

If it is true I'd expect him to be wiped from history at the end of the story putting everything back the way (we thought) it was.

****

The most interesting part of the whole rumour to me has been the suggestion that he's filling the function in the story that Eccleston would have if had agreed to appear. Add that to Rose's post-Apocalyptic outfit and it does raise some interesting possibilities that may tie in with the suposed Series Finale synopsis that has appeared.

Would Moffat really follow one story with alternate timelines (assuming the "Name of the Doctor" rumors are true) with another story with alternate timelines? Is the man really that bereft of ideas?

Oh, wait. It's Moffat we're talking about...

I've seen that stated elsewhere, but it honestly feels like wishful thinking to me.

That said, it could be true.

I'm assuming those 10 and 11's feet. How is this an announcement? I have no idea who Ed Russel is or what he's been teasing all day long?

He's the Brand Manager for the Series, which mostly involves being Moffat's Yes Man, denying things that later turn out to be true and generating empty hype.

I have a feeling this photo was a dig at the person who leaked the Doctor Hurt news, who goes by the name The Doctors Trainers.

Piggy backing off that.


Why haven't we seen any alternate universe doctors?

What if there was a doctor in Pete's World who still went back to Galifrey on a regular basis etc?

Is the doctor excluded from the multi universe concept?

In the 7th Doctor Story Battlefield, the Antagonists are from an alternate dimension/universe, whatever, and they know The Doctor as Merlin, so, we have had Our Doctor (Seven) impersonating an Alternate universe Doctor, kind of

The novels say that the Dictator in Inferno was that univese's Doctor. Also, Coming of the Terraphiles says the Time Lords drafted their alternate reality selves to help out with Time War, and as a result the Doctor really is the last Time Lord in all the multiverse.

However, as far as the show goes, RTD was of the opinion that the Time Lords were unique to the "prime" universe therefore there aren't any Time Lords or a Doctor travelling in Pete's world.

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

This picture of the two Doctors is much better than the two pairs of feet (and what is supposedly John Hurt beyond the shoes).

I never thought I'd say that I'm nostalgic for Tennant. He looks like a big kid having the time of his life there.

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

It is kind of cool we now have pictures of Tennant and Smith together with Smith now in his own costume.

For those wondering what I'm trying to get at, it's the picture of Tennant and Smith together in The Writer's Tale with Smith in Tennant's costume, taken on set of The End of Time.
