50th anniversary rumor mill....

I just came across a ratherr curious thread on the imdb forums of Doctor Who, and thought I'd share this here in hopes of your sharing your opinions on it.

Now, I know its always rather dubious when imdb threads are provided for a plot or such, but the following contains what seems to be the plot, apparently, of the story, provided by, allegedly, a guy who predicted the plot of the series 7 finale.

So yeah, I know this may not be the most reliable of sourcess (and it could turn out to be absolutely false), but in due of this ludicrous waiting, here's something to talk about (also, SPOILERS):

Re: 50th anniversary rumor mill....

So Rose only appears in one scene?

I know that would make some people happy but she shot for a week and we know from photos of her stand-in that she's got some sort of post-Apocalyptic outfit on.

And no mention of the Daleks, who we know are a big part of it.

It's totally false.

That's the plot summary that Whistleblower5 posted earlier in the year to see how credulous Doctor Who fans can be.

It will therefore be posted as total fact by Bleeding Cool tonight

Re: 50th anniversary rumor mill....

Actually, this isn't bad at all. I think at least elements of it could be true.

My only problem is if the tenth doctor regenerates there, wouldn't that mean the End of Time and a lot of Tenth Doctor adventures never happen? Is that the BBCs way of getting rid of the EN of Time?

I love the whole alternate ninth and omega thing, but I don't like that it could change establishes who history.

But it looks like I'll have to take this ith a pinch of salt. Still, good story.

Re: 50th anniversary rumor mill....

Would this mean that it would retcon the Omega audio story out of existence? Seeing as how Omega returned to the anti-matter universe and all.

Also, I agree about that the potential retconning of the Tenth Doctor's lifespan would be irritating, seeing as how he's earned his exit in the manner that he did. I have a feeling, supposing any of this is true (and I think this part is, by far, the most improbable), this might've been intended for Eccleston's Doctor - or maybe Eccleston would've been both Nine and pseudo-Nine? Like, pseudo-Nine starts the story, then just before Omega's revealed, the real Ninth Doctor appears to the story through him absorbing the Time Vortex at the end of Parting of the Ways? Sounds crazy, I know.

Still, while its semi-plausible, I'm not really sure this is what we'll see. Seems to derive too much from Arc of Infinity (and consequently The Three Doctors) and Mawdryn Undead, where the said solution is revealed - and that makes little sense because the Doctors have, well, saluted themselves before.

Still, the part with the paintings could have some basis... Reasonable excuse to run clips from the whole of the show.

As pointed out earlier it's totally fake and months old.

Re: 50th anniversary rumor mill....

There's probably one or two elements that could be true, but some false. For example, while the painting thing could be entirely true, the Tennant regenerating into Smith thing, while it sounds like something Moffat would do, it also sounds a bit fan fictionany.

This scam was pulled months ago, there's no way anyone could've known anything about the Anniversary Special back then. It's all a scam by that troll who just wanted to see how fast people's heads would explode.

Also, wasn't this originally said to be the plot for The Name of The Doctor, rather then the Anniversary Special?

Yeah, it probably is a troll. Still a good plot though.

Matt Smith said back in the spring that there were paintings in the anniversary special. Whistleblower5 clearly took the little bit that was in the public domain (that UNIT was in it, that the tenth Doctor was in it, that there are paintings) then fashioned a plot, along with the long-standing speculation that Omega was going to be the Moffat era's overall Big Bad, to make that story.

Well, there was the Omega symbol in that series 5 Weeping Angels episode. And Moffat said he will tie up stuff he's been planting as far back as the eleventh hour.

I wouldn't mind seeing Omega back... just not as he's fashioned in the allegedly "leaked" plot of TDOTD.

Re: 50th anniversary rumor mill....

I quite like the idea of the Hurt doctor being an alternate 9 that split off in the time war.
