    Well in time crash because two doctors were together the 5th doctor aged prahaps that can be the explanation for tom and the others getting old. Plus we have pretty much perfected CGI so we can use CGI to animated the fiest three doctors. As for chris well at the end of rose the TARDIS leaves but just a second later it returns wirh the doctor explaineing that it is a time machine well what happond impertween. They could just do what they did with tom bakee in the five doctors

    you don’t know what they will do and it wont be much of an anniversary if some if not all are included in some way

    Aint gonna happen mate. That’s just a fantasy that sadly will never become a reality. I wish fan’s would get over the idea and just accept it will never happen. The first three actors to play the Doctor are dead, whoever could play their Doctors obviously won’t be that convincing, the Baker Doctors are sadly overweight and look nothing like they did in the 70’s and 80’s, and Christopher Eccleston want’s NOTHING to do with Doctor Who these days, yet it seems no one ever listens to him.

    And please, don’t tell his changed his mind, cos Ive found no proof on the Internet that says otherwise. Every interview involving Doctor Who with Chris, he always says he does not wish to return, yet still, no body listens carefully to what he is saying, except me offcourse.

    I don’t think the show is to American actually I think the doctor who movie was very American and torchwood was also Americanise and now I think where heading up to the 50th I think we will have it back to 95% British and 5% alien

    all the doctors are different and some are less mysterious than others and there have been many times when we see that the 11th doctor is mysterious .

    Anonymous – Well I’m sure the answer to your question is so obvious that you wouldn’t have needed to ask – their all dead 😛

    Plus don’t forget, the Doctor lost everyone on Gallifrey [“There all gone now . . my family . . my friends, even that sky”] and the Doctor is a very private person, which I myself and a lot of people can understand, cos sometimes I lie in order to protect myself for some reason or other cos if you miss someone who for example is dead that you loved so much and your never going to see again, then obviously it hurts.

    So the Ice Warriors ARE being brought back ? Or to be more accurate, being “Revitalised”.

    I told myself not o believe it until I saw concrete evidence, but there you have it. Hope they’re atleast green, and Mark Gatiss hasn’t buggerd them up as he did the Daleks, but from what Moffat has said it looks to be a success ❗

    I doubt that Moffat is trying to appeal to americans, he certainly wouln’t change the style of the show just to get americans to like it, Doctor Who is successful partly because of it’s british style, specially in America ! The favourite Doctor was Tom Baker in America, was that because he was “AMERICANISED” ? 😛

    I disagree with Anonymous apart from the bit about it bring more violent.

    Cybermen ripping out the spinal chord of the person they kill and the Doctor employing his unfathomable Timelord fighting skills would be very much welcomed 🙂

    Amy asks if the doctor has children and the doctor does not awnser. We all know he has children so why is that ment to be so mysteryous

    Im just saying that dr who should return to the classic formula, with violance, horror multipul storys and more mystery to the doctor. Plus saying that the doctor has no childen is dtupid because we know he has children


    February 22nd, 2013 - 4:41pm

    BRING BACK DAVROS !!!!!! 😀

    But please guys, let the Master rest in peace.

    It’s been proved he’s more than just another Time Lord now, what with the question and all that. Maybe RTD took away some mystery about the Doctor, but Steven Moffat seems to be giving it back. And I agree about the Seventh Doctor being great because of the level of mystery he had.

    When amy asks if the doctor had children he does not reply. We all know he had children. He has mentiond it hundreds of times and of course theres susan you know his granddaughter. When I mean I want mystery back into the doctor I mean things like is he more than just a time lord is id god or something you know the doctor being master of his own destiney like the seventh doctor

    Hey, some people actually enjoy the writing. I might not be to huge a fan of the RTD era (Though it was still good when the writers were thinking straight), the Steven Moffat era has introduced my favorite Doctor, my favorite Daleks, and my favorite episode. The storylines make you think. I like storylines that make you think than give a rushed, tacked on explanation. The Doctor is perfectly mysterious. The mystery of his name is even greater now. Actually, he’s more mysterious now than in the Classic Series because we don’t have other Time Lords to tell us about his past. If the Silents aren’t horrific, than I’m a goldfish named Colin.

    It’s supposed to be a family show, and if it feels Americanized, that’s because Moffat is trying to appeal to American viewers. The only companions I recall being pompous and full of themselves were Rose and occasionally Donna. Doctor Who is a family show, and while it would be nice to have slightly more violent episodes, it is still a family show.

    Yep! Unlikely, since I don’t have a lot of money, unfortunately. In fact, I probably don’t even have the money to go myself. Oh well, I can always show my support (If the specials are good) by re-watching the special again and again and again! 😀

  • DalekTheSupreme

    February 22nd, 2013 - 1:32pm

    Thanks! My only regret is the Master will never encounter my favorite incarnation of the Doctor (Matt Smith). And Davros should definately return. Actually, to be honest, I’d love to see an episode where he returns, but is somehow possessed by Fenric. Unlikely, but one can always hope

    The new series of doctor who is not very good. The writeing is terrible and it is to comedic. The companions are pompus and rude, the story lines are complicated and the doctor is less mysteryous. I want dr who to return to the classic fotmat with violant storys, horrific monsters and the cartmel masterplan

    I heard a rumour we would find out what happened to the Eye of Harmony. If so, I might be even more excited for Journey To The Center Of The TARDIS than The Last Cyberman.

    I really actually enjoyed nearly all the Masters. I’m not sure about Geofforey Beavers because I haven’t watched The Keeper of Trakken in years, but Peter Pratt was amazing in the role. I’ve seen three stories with Roger Delgado, and he’s quickly becoming my favorite Master. Anthony Ainley was pretty good too, Derek Jacobi should’ve been around for longer, John Simm wasn’t the best but was pretty entertaining. Eric Roberts is the only one I don’t like.

    DalekTheSupreme, I hope you have enough money to pay for a plus 1! if things go the right way that is!

    I really don’t want the Master to go! He’s been the essential Doctor Who enemy since the 70’s onwards. His body slowly decayed and he found a way to come back, he got slowly disintegrated and STILL he found a way to come back, he was executed by the Dalek’s and he wriggled his way into a human body, he got shot by his own wife and once again, CAME BACK! What does that say? The Master always finds a way TO COME BACK!
