McCoy should definitely wear the same sort of thing he did in the 96 film, hair included. It looked better and he could get away with aging.

Of the classic Doctors, McGann definitely looks near enough, and I do think Time Crash has shown that Davison can get away with it too. This is what McCoy looked like playing the Doctor 18 months ago:

Even if Colin and Tom are beyond the pale (and personally even if they are I would still want them to be in it), those others haven't changed beyond all recognition from their Doctor days...
McCoy could get by just as easily as Troughton did in The Five Doctors and the Two Doctors.

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

So does Moffat not actually remember that TPO3 took place well after 2013?

I have to say nothing I've seen or heard yet says 50th Anniversary. Might as well call it an 8th Anniversary Special. Actually 7th, since Eccleston turned it down.

That's a rhetorical question, right?

Good to see Kate Stewart is returning but I still wish it could have been The Brig.

Of course, as I've said elsewhere, Matt Smith said to Jonathan Ross, when asked to describe this story in one word, 'pictures.' That could mean we'll see pictures of the older Doctors. But I can't help wondering if there'll be some sort of Dorian Gray aspect to the story. Portraits, probably holographic, of the earlier Doctors in the TARDIS, which age, even as the incumbent remains young and vital. Could this be a way of having Tom, Peter and Colin back on board?
I like that idea a lot.

Even if Ten/Eleven is all we get from an actual Doctor perspective, I'm still hoping we might get a classic companion. There'd certainly be no issues over them looking too old because most of them didn't die, they just left the Tardis, so it doesn't matter that Ace/Leela/Tegan/Turlough or whoever look older/fatter/thinner/greyer, whatever.

I think it's a given that, were she still with us, Elisabeth Sladen would have been in this
We definitely need a few classic companions in this special in some form (and I agree Elisabeth Sladen would have been one of them).

I keep saying this and I will continue to do so until I'm blue in the face: If no other companion actor returns, William Russell absolutely must return. They already have him lined up for a cameo in the biopic.

Re: 50th Anniversary Story Official Thread

As much as I like Redgrave's character, I hope UNIT doesn't play too big a part in the special. I haven't really cared for the other, UNIT-central episodes in the new series all that much.

Yeah, thinkin about it... The Christmas Invasion is good, but they're more of a side thing in that. The first major one to feature UNIT is the Sontaran two-parter, which is pretty much a disaster. After that, Planet of the Dead, another disaster. The Power of Three, some nice character scenes; mostly disaster.

But I think this will just be a small thing to get the Brig's role fulfilled.

I hope UNIT barley appear at all. I hate the military, and their presence in the episode might numb my liking for it.

@Candlelight Most of us figured it out already, but it doesn't make it sting any less having it confirmed.

Still, at least now we can face and mourn the might've beens and be excited for what we are getting

And who knows? What we're getting may be the first genuinely good multi-Doctor full story in the show's history.

I hate the current production crew, fuckers, no respect for the 26 of the 34 broadcasting years of Doctor Who. So none of the '20th century' doctors were even approached, that means that they never planned to include them at all. The 50th only comes once, and its wasted on fans who also like the classic series.

Even some of the specials like BBCA's The companions di not feature any companions before 2005, they only talked about Sarah Jane because she was in the new show also.
