    It'll be funny when it turns out to have nothing to do with Doctor Who but he's also added a photo of Hedy Lemar who would be a perfect 'celeb historical' character.

    Damn yes, she'd be awesome given her hobby as an inventor (or was acting the hobby who can tell?)

    So long as they stick with her being smart enough to invent stuff rather than have her piggyback off some Dalek tech or something!

    Man, an Edgar Wright-directed DW anniversary... That's unexpectedly amazing and awesome and wonderful.

    Would have to be set before the Rock Ridge incident.

    I'm not sure how I feel about that. It really makes me think they're just going to cram as much stuff in it as possible.

    That would be fun. I'd like a Western episode. Oh, wait. That's Hedley.

    You're saying it wrong.

    "IT'S HEDLEY!"

    So that's both Capaldi and Lucas she's been hanging out with.

    RTD: We'll be revealing nothing yet, as Jodie's still in the TARDIS.

    Also RTD: Tennant and Tate are back. Woo!

    Though, to be fair, people were clearly already onto this, so getting it properly out there rather than letting it drag on makes sense.

    Especially if they're going to be shooting in public.

    And as I noted in the other thread the news story does not say this is for the 60th anniversary episode, so perhaps the idea that they're doing multiple one-offs featuring past Doctors for the anniversary year has some truth to it.

    It would explain how they're shooting now while Ncuti is still making the 'Barbie' movie.

    This turned out to be even truer than one might have expected…

    Note that the casting call has “Lily” filming for several weeks in May and June, so even if Tennant and Tate are in multiple specials Rose 2.0 apparently won’t be.

    New TARDIS and companion revealed. The windows are finally right!

    It's for this, actually. But it would have been a hell of a coup...

    At first I didn't see your text below the photo and my first thought was, "Oh, no! More misinformation spreading!" This prop and production had a thread upon the "TARDIS Builders", of which I'm a (non building) member.

    But then I caught your followup and I sighed with relief, "Whew! Misconceptions averted!"
