To be expected as he returns all the time LOL, need to have some older companions make an appearance. Sadly many are dead but there is still quite a few that could show up.
I'd have been dissapointed if Barrowman didn't show up...
Not so sure about Rory (unless it's a flashback)
Series 1 of Nu-Doctor Who and Children of Earth are the only times he's been used well. It doesn't help that John Barrowman is one of the most obnoxious people on television.
Not sure why they conflated the two. One is a direct confirmation from BARROWMAN!!!*, the other more of a passing comment.
*That's he's now backtracking on slightly on Twitter, no doubt after a word from BBC PR people...
How would anyone ever expect Barrowman to keep quiet about anything!
You don't watch much television, do you?
Barrowman is a delight.
Jack Harkness is the modern equivalent of the Brigadeer, I'd be disappointed if he never met the eleventh Doctor.
I would hope Captain Jack Harkness comes back for the anniversary.
Hell, I'd be happy for him just to turn up at all. Wish Miracle Day had been a better success, then Torchwood could keep goin'...
Did he steal your boyfriend or something? I've enjoyed his performances and appearances on TV be it fictional or real.
yeah, it's always awesome when he guest stars on Arrow.
Miracle Day kept him from appearing in A Good Man Goes to War... would have been better filler, than the standing around with the baby. There was River too.
Another companion rumored to be returning:
Where did you see that? I saw "Another character is rumored to be returning" and then they went on to talk about the returning monster we already know about. I Read back over several paragraphs excepting "Character" to be a Companion
The last line of the second paragraph reads,
Spoiler: ... a certain male companion ...
"Actor William Russell, who played the first-ever male companion, Ian Chesterton, will be making a cameo appearence in the special."
He has a cameo as "Harry" in An Adventure In Time And Space. Not the anniversary special or Christmas special
Ah, OK, In AIS&T. I was thinking the Matt Smith Anniversary Special. I already knew about William Russel in AIS&T, so, I was looking for another character in Anniversasry Special as their Classic Character.
Sorry 'bout that
We keep hearing rumors, but there's just not a lot that's going to fit into a 60 minute special.
I understand there's some kind of funding issue that leaves the series future in doubt, but they would have done better to hedge their bet for an anniversary series 8 where each episode could focus on something related to one past Doctor (13 episodes - 11 Doctors with two bookends to start and finish the series). I am really shocked this is not what was done; I don't think Moffat would be opposed to a grand epic season of Doctor Who history even if it was after the 50th year. What better story would he have to tell for Series 8?
Moffat himself said the other day that the 60 minute "Rumour" is "Rubbish".
Sorry guys, I mis-read that bit about the guest appearance. Way too many "Specials" next year. I got them mixed up.
Separate names with a comma.
