Actually the machine in "Mawdryn" was only designed to treat regenerative crises. Mawdryn had tried to rejigger it so that it could give his people the power of eternal regeneration, but he was unsuccessful at making the alteration. So the machine was not actually capable of adding regenerations to a Time Lord's life cycle.

More than that. They actually resurrected him.

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

By the way, here's the schedule for BBC America's "Doctor Who Takeover Week" starting Monday:

http://www.threeifby...r-who-takeover/

In summary, it's mostly reruns, either of the previous Doctors Revisited specials from the previous ten months, or of episodes from the new series. But there's some original content: On Monday at 9 Eastern, there's an interview documentary called Tales from the TARDIS and then The Science of Doctor Who With Brian Cox. Friday has a Doctor Who Explained special at 8 Eastern before the debut of An Adventure in Time and Space, the docudrama about the creation and early years of the series. And on Saturday, "The Day of the Doctor" debuts in a global simulcast at 2:50 PM Eastern, then gets rerun at 7 PM, and at 10 there's a Graham Norton Show episode with Matt Smith and David Tennant. Sunday has a final Doctors Revisited special debuting at 8 PM Eastern, focusing on Matt Smith and reairing "The Impossible Astronaut"/"The Day of the Moon."

I'm a little disappointed there isn't more classic series content that hasn't already been rerun on BBCA (although I'm afraid they'd stretch it out to fit the widescreen frame like they did with the Revisited episodes). It would've been so cool if they'd debuted the recently recovered Second Doctor stories "The Enemy of the World" and "The Web of Fear," for instance. But I guess it's just as well there isn't too much stuff to watch, or I'd have no time to get any work done.

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

My theater has pushed the screening back almost an hour, I wonder why.
Anyway, they went from showing it on the smallest screen to moving it to a mid sized one, adding the small screen on top of that and running the special again on the small screen a second time because more and more people kept buying tickets and it's almost entirely sold out now.
Which is pretty extraordinary for Germany where media coverage of Doctor Who is practically non existent and the show is only available through cable channels hardly anyone watches.

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

tvtv.de has an intersting synopsis of the episode, thought it doesn´t really tell us anything new, I translated it for you:




Some information for german Who fans on the board:

It seems most Cinemaxx cinemas are showing The Day of the Doctor, note since it´s delcared as an event by Cinemax, ticket reservation is only possible for silver or gold card holders. Everyone else has to have luck to get any tickets.

FOX (via Sky or Kabel Deutschland Digital) is showing it at 21:00, note that it seems its dubbed there since its beeing advertised with a german title.

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

Good thing my local theater is not a CinemaxX then. I bought my ticket weeks ago without any kind if subscription. Though up until yesterday no reservations were possible. You had to actually buy the ticket.
And it will be shown in the English original here.

Fun thing. My theater advertised the screening in facebook, where I spontaneously invited fellow Whovians from my town to a newly created fan group.
We are doing a meet-up before the show on saturday. So, yay, meeting new people thanks to DW, Facebook and the theater...now that's social networking at it's best.

Tom Baker says he's in it... But who knows if he jests or not?

Interesting. He certainly sounds detailed and specific enough to make you think it's true. And it also sounds like a bit more than just a brief cameo...

In a way, I hope he's not in it now. Imagine how pissed off Moffat, Smith, Tennant never mind the rest of the BBC is right now if he is in it and at this last minute he comes "out".

My reaction reading the quote the third time was the same as reading it the first time....he's joking. Sarcasm. Sort of like "Of COURSE I'm in the special! BBC told me to say nothing so OF COURSE just because you asked, I'm telling you!" etc.

If he's in it, it'll probably be in the form of archival footage.

Edit: Well, the bit about surprising the technicians on set by appearing is certainly odd enough to make me think twice....
