Well this explains why we didn't see Colin's face (and presumably McCoy's as well).

That's a picture. Not an explanation.

An explanation would be something like, "we didn't have any hi resolution pictures or great poses of them in character, so, we decided to do this instead."

OR

"We wanted to mix it up."

OR

"We hate the fans of the 6th and 7th Doctors so we did it on purpose. We're trolling you all."

Those would be explanations.

I think what's he's trying to say is that instead of digitally inserting Colin Baker into the shot the way they digitally inserted McGann, Eccleston, and Davison in that sequence, they had a dummy dressed in Colin Baker's costume, eliminating the need for digital trickery with at least one of the Doctors.

Sure. But that's not an explanation for the CHOICE to use a dummy. That's what they did. Why did they choose that? That would be interesting. Two doctors didn't have their faces revealed. For some reason. (And no, I don't expect there to be a conspiracy against them...)

I don't know. Maybe it was the coat. Maybe the coat would be difficult and time-consuming to animate in CG so using a dummy was a simple solution to the problem.

But nothing is really animated. Everything is frozen in space (and time... ) I would imagine once it is scanned in it would be easy to rotate. And the face might be harder than the coat.

And then, what would the McCoy explanation be?

Meanwhile, has anyone else noticed that Tom Baker seems to be missing a leg?

Re: 50th Is "The Day Of The Doctor" (And Is 75 Minutes)

I hadn't noticed, but looking at it again, I would say the idea is he's kicking his leg back as he's falling. They maintain the consistency from both the below and above views.

Maybe it's a reference to his legless pirate captain Redbeard Rum in Blackadder II!

Check to see if there's a cinema showing it near you.

Very cool. I'm going to be in London that weekend. I wonder if there's some way to pre-order a ticket (the above link is blocked at work so I can't look at it right now).

Yep, you'll have to book from the cinema's own website I believe. so Odeon, Vue or Cineworld. Not sure tickets are on sale yet though.
