FTFA: Doctor Who actors from past and present MIGHT BE uniting...if series chief Steven Moffat, who is also the creator of Sherlock, is to be believed.

So, we know exactly the same thing that we've known all along.

This might happen.

NEXT!

I really want Ecclestone to come back. I know he's said in the past he wants nothing more to do with Who, but hopefully they can change his mind on this.

I saw the old stuff occasionally but I'm very much a child of the New Who era and Eccles is still my favorite one. He's the only one that ever felt like a threat - the only one that had the flame of homicidal crazy behind the eyes instead of simple eccentric shoe-eating crazy.

He the only one who can stare you dead in the eye and tell you he killed his entire species so he could beat the Daleks and make it sound believable.

He felt like a true adventurer with a voracious appetite for new experiences rather than a jaded dillettante trying to stave off boredom like those who followed him.

"getting the other Doctors involved would be very fitting for thebirthday [sic] episode"

That's it.  That's the whole thing. It would be "very fitting" if it were to happen.

Nothing to see here.  Move along.

It will be a good thing if they can manage to bring Christopher Eccleston back. But I'm actually more excited about possibility of Paul McGann coming back to do 8 again. I hear his audio performances are actually pretty good. I'd definitely like to see him leave a better film version of 8 than his one and only shot so far.

It's for a 50th anniversary SHOW, not an episode.  It will probably be interviews/documentary.  That said, if you're interested in comics, IDW is currently publishing Doctor Who: Prisoners in Time, in which each month is the next Doctor, with the twelfth month featuring all of 'em.

How amazing would it be to see Tom Baker? Can you imagine seeing him back in the scarf?

I'd only watch if he DID wear the scarf. Baker is still my favorite Doctor, but he'd need his scarf to cover up his bloated neck. Time is a biatch

I know people like Eccleston's badassery, but people overlook that McCoy, under his goofy outfit, was a badass as well.  He would plan across all of time and space like a gigantic chess match and then scoff when the enemy was perplexed by the moves.  He talked people (and Daleks) into committing suicide; he talked another guy into not executing him, he BLEW UP SKARO by tricking the Daleks into capturing a Time Lord device, and presumably killed Davros.  And he did it all with a slightly unhinged, but calm, jauntiness.

I don't get this talk of Eccleston's version being a badass.  He was very much in recovery from experiencing and taking part in horrific events and that's how the part was played.

One thing I don't understand about the whole paradox issue - why not leave them a message, say 20 years before they get where they are going, to meet him at a time that IS safe for him to get to?  Sure, they might be a tad older, but since when has that mattered to him?

For Moffat episodes, just don't think too hard, or, really at all.  I know DW has been plagued with inconsistencies, but under Moffat's run, the show's motto has basically been: "fark it, let's just make shiat up, so long as it looks nice."

I've never understood this love for Donna Noble (or Rose).  Martha, then Rory, then Pond - though that last has more to do with OMG hotness than anything else.  I also liked the one kinda-sorta introduced in the Christmas Special.

It's nice to see so many people turn on Amy Pond.

I think it was the first part of season 7 that did it. If they had left after S6, The backlash wouldn't have happened. But those first 5 episodes just didn't need any redheads.

Oh, and I see the article brought up the "Smith might be leaving after the 50th anniversary special" rumor, which also has no basis in fact at this time.

Sure, it is coming close to the time he should be leaving (as should Moffat), but to be putting shiat like this in a newspaper article? It has as much validity as anything posted here.

Martha was fun to look at, and a horrible companion.

Really, if everyone hated Rose because of her wanting a relationship with the Doctor, the entirety of Martha's season was "GIVE ME TIME LORD COCK NOW!!!1".

Donna Nobe was the only NuCompanion that didn't want to be anal probed by an alien, the only adult NuCompanion that wasn't a vapid 20-something piece of eye candy, had a clear arc where she actually evolved, and S4 was the best season of the new series.

/she also had the shiattiest ending.

I disagree.  Smith's an excellent Doctor (one of my favorites), and should stick around - Moffat's good at plotting long storylines, he just needs to stop getting sucked into his own cleverness.  Should they stick around forever?  No.  But let's give them some more time, at least.

Donna was awesome. I'll cop to that. But that was largely because of her strength of personality and the absence of a romantic subplot.

But I'd argue Martha was the best nuCompanion - or rather, she had the greatest potential to be. Enormous potential which was totally squandered.

Martha came off almost as a peer for the Doctor. She was smart in her own right, and learned quickly from him. She had her own set of principles and didn't need preaching to constantly by the Doc. He could actually rely on her and let her go off on her own without her becoming an instant victim.

If only they hadn't saddled her with that totally misplaced unrequited love storyline. It's the only time she ever seemed weak.

What a waste.

I'm glad in the end at least she's like 'fark off, I'm not playing second fiddle anymore. Time for me to move on with my life. Lay-tas" and then hooks up with Mickey, who was treated just as badly.

The Ninth Doctor and Martha Jones would have been awesome together.

Martha was awesome ... when she got her independence and did a group of cameos and guest-starring roles.  The whole "I love you!" thing was horrible with Rose, and even worse with Martha.  What made Martha part two and Donna so refreshing is that they were actual WOMEN, capable of meeting the Doctor on his own turf while retaining their independence.  They could work with him without pining for him.

This is one reason I'm looking forward to the new season so much.  Oswin looks like Martha 2.0; she's brilliant enough to keep up with and even outwit the Doctor, he's going to go off on her on even if he tells her not to, and while she's certainly willing to vamp him to get her way, there's no big one-sided emotional wreck there.  It could be especially fun if they bring River back in at the same time (since there's still a lot of that story we don't know).

I get the impression that the next season will be more about the Doctor chasing Souffle Girl, rather than his Companions chasing him, which has been the usual pattern so far.

whizbangthedirtfarmer: Mega Steve: whizbangthedirtfarmer: I know people like Eccleston's badassery, but people overlook that McCoy, under his goofy outfit, was a badass as well. He would plan across all of time and space like a gigantic chess match and then scoff when the enemy was perplexed by the moves. He talked people (and Daleks) into committing suicide; he talked another guy into not executing him, he BLEW UP SKARO by tricking the Daleks into capturing a Time Lord device, and presumably killed Davros. And he did it all with a slightly unhinged, but calm, jauntiness.

Don't forget Pertwee. He was the only Doctor who engaged in hand-to-hand combat.

The 3rd Doctor: A Timelord so mean, he once chopped a Dalek in half just for exterminating too loud!

...and also dressing in drag and clubbing a dude over the head with a bucket.


So, Quentin Crisp as a timelord.

got it.

Richard_The_Clown: floor: So Tom baker will be getting back together for the 50th anniversary! Awesome. I rewatched City of Death yesterday. It was one of the bonuses of having food poisoning ... Actually the only bonus. He sold some clunky lines and gave what could have been an over serious story some fun. It was a good episode but I would have rather been able to eat solid food.

Not to mention the story was written by Douglas Adams and the Doctor was going up against a man who has matched wits with Indiana Jones, James Bond, the Rebel Alliance and Harry Potter!

Yes, Baker had one of the funniest moments in all of Doctor Who ... "dear God, what are you thinking?  That's Louis XIV!"

PIP_the_TROLL: I really want Ecclestone to come back. I know he's said in the past he wants nothing more to do with Who, but hopefully they can change his mind on this.

I saw the old stuff occasionally but I'm very much a child of the New Who era and Eccles is still my favorite one. He's the only one that ever felt like a threat - the only one that had the flame of homicidal crazy behind the eyes instead of simple eccentric shoe-eating crazy.

He the only one who can stare you dead in the eye and tell you he killed his entire species so he could beat the Daleks and make it sound believable.

He felt like a true adventurer with a voracious appetite for new experiences rather than a jaded dillettante trying to stave off boredom like those who followed him.

Make Mine Nine.


Agreed!

Of the post Baker doctors he was the best.

\pretty cool scene when he left his "business card" for the Daleks so they would know he had been there


I have a soft spot for McCoy's doctor myself.  It's particularly annoying to me that he died like a biatch in that abomination of a film.

/didn't get the McCoy hate in The Hobbit movie either
