Re: 50th anniversary being sold short

Who decides what he's going to watch on television one month in advance?

The "We" pretty much.

The "Not-We" might think, "Oh yea, I gotta watch for that when it comes on", but, they're not going make a career out of watching for it and most are unlikely to bother marking their calendar, so, the more promotion up close to the premiere date is the most valuable.

Re: 50th anniversary being sold short

The scheduling of Doctor Who these past few years has been pretty bad and I think it's a shame there's not any Doctor Who this autumn. Moffat's breaks have really halted the momentum of the show a bit, I think.

As for the anniversary, I'm happy with everything I'm hearing. We don't need the old Doctors in it as, outside of McGann, they'll look a lot older. While I don't mind that in theory, after watching the trailer and seeing the snippets of them in their glory, I think it might be crass to march them all out again.

Re: 50th anniversary being sold short

Well I wouldn't really want Tom Baker done unless he wore one of his earlier outfits (the JNT outfit really doesn't work for him when he got older, as we saw in Dimensions in Time), but overall I think he'd be too old, there'd need to be a big explanation and better yet, weight loss. Davison, just too old I suppose. Colin Baker, too big, looks unrecognisable. When my mother saw an interview wit Colin Baker as he is now, she exclaimed "IS THAT COLIN BAKER?". McCoy could work, especially if done up like he was in the 96 film. McGann, I am desperate to return.

Re: 50th anniversary being sold short

Do we know yet what the whole protest thing is actually being used for? From what I understand, Peter Davison has given the impression it's a secret project that can't be talked about(?), but, I don't know if what it actually is has been revealed yet?

So's the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th!

And the whole Hurt thing was just a misdirection!

What? It was all a dream? Oh yeah!

No, he isn't. Neither are any of the other classic Doctors or companions. I think the words "Missed Opportunity" are rather appropriate now...

Or, "bad idea averted," those words could also be appropriate. We simply don't know.

And?

Trailers/promotion for the new series, any new series on the BBC occur around this time, I've been seeing indents on the different BBC channels for a week or so and we had that trailer after Strictly on Saturday and we all know when it will be on and a perceived lack of promotion will not mean it isn't being shown.

As I've said else where, I am very glad there isn't a full blown bells and whistles trailer, I personally do not want to know the exact beats of the episode.

Re: 50th anniversary being sold short

As a fan i would like to see a trailer, simple as that. If trailers are useless please tell every one else who does one for there productions. Trailers are marketing 101, they serve to build hype. 'Hey did you see the trailer for 'XX film' yet? It's really cool I totally want to see that film/show now.' These are specials not the regular tv show. The BBC does not seem to know how to build hype for any of the 50th stuff.

Re: 50th anniversary being sold short

But there has been a trailer, there have been numerous indents on BBC One and the other BBC channels.

We're a month out, it's happening, but, and this is something which quiet a few people seem to fail to grasp, the BBC doesn't do massive promotion for anything more than a month in advance, yes, they'll do a "Original British Drama" trailer, but they're normally a one off for new and sometimes unique dramas that very few people have heard of several months in advance. But when it comes to Who, and this is something that seems to occur when a new series obviously be on at Easter, they don't advertise before now.

As a fan, I know when it's happening, unless the world ends, or I end, I'll be watching it on Saturday November 23rd 2013, I also pretty much know what I'll be doing, me and the future mrs dimesdan are holding a Who themed house warming party and in the weeks that are coming, regardless of a "proper" trailer, the viewing public will know.

The trailer we got did a better job than any trailer showing actual footage could.
