Which special are you most looking forward to?

Personally I'm looking forward to An Adventure in Space and Time. The chance to see the genesis of the show is gonna be great.

Re: Which special are you most looking forward to?

50th anniversary. I'm sorry that only Tennant is returning but it'll be great to see him interacting with Smith and I'm looking forward to seeing the mystery of the Hurt Doctor being revealed. I don't know enough about the Xmas special to get really excited and, honestly, I'm not looking forward to Matt leaving. Perhaps when I see who the new Doctor is my feelings will change.

As regards An Adventure in..., I'm looking forward to it, but for me it's interesting rather than essential.

Re: Which special are you most looking forward to?

Honestly, I think I'm more excited about An Adventure in Space and Time, although I'm even more excited about Big Finish's The Light at the End.

I think Captaindemotion summed up my views pretty much.

Re: Which special are you most looking forward to?

The 50th anniversary, but then again, I am rather dissapointed that only Tennant will return as a previous Doctor. I wish Eccleston and McGann could've made an appearence, but I guess I should be happy we got Tennant at all, huh?

But who knows? Maybe it'll pay off.

I don't think there was any doubt Tennant would be back for it, frankly a special without 11 was probably more likely than a special without 10!

Re: Which special are you most looking forward to?

It's got to be between The 50th and the Xmas. I don't really give much about AAITAS.

The 50th will see the return of my favourite doctor, and if the talk of Paul McGann coming back for a minisode is true, then my second favourite doctor will also return. If McGann returns for a minisode, I'll probably look forward to that more than the 50th itself. :P

The Xmas will be a regeneration story, and they're nearly always my favourite stories. I'll probably end up preferring it to the 50th, although I'm enjoying the hype of the 50th. I have a nice little feeling that Daleks will be In the regeneration!

Re: Which special are you most looking forward to?

I'll update my opinion. Well as I said it's between the 50th and the Xmas. Really it depends who's cast as the twelfth doctor.

100th anniversary special with 80 year old Matt Smith. Too bad Helen Mirren wouldn't be able to reprise her role as the 12th Doctor, though.

Re: Which special are you most looking forward to?

The X-Mas episode I'm excited about, BUT as far as it being the final Eleventh Doctor story, really - its great to SEE the new Doctor, but thats always a sneak preview, IMO, than an actual showcase. But still, its a regeneration story, and these are always tricky. IMO, nobody has ever topped the Fifth's Caves of Androzani.

I voted for the 50th anniversary special, but really, I'm excited to see all of them. You really need an "all of the above" option.
