What Would You Like For The 50th Anniversary

What Would You Like To See For The 50th Anniversary

With the days and months ticking away to the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who what would you like to see happen to celebrate this momentous occasion.

A multi Doctor Story? Past Doctors and Companions playing other parts? anything as long as it involves Paul McGann or Doctor Who street parties perhaps?



    August 16th, 2012 - 3:52pm


    daleks (die as they kill the 11th doctor but the the good statue’s turn the daleks into stone)
    cybermen & cyberwomen (they become good as they are betrayed)
    statues (evil)
    evil river (future she dies as everyone found out that she on the doctor with the master. she was in space and she jamp out of the tardis)


    10th doctor (kills amy)
    8th doctor (discovers that rory’s a cyberman)
    11th doctor (tracks rose down with the help of k9 and finds out she’s about to get married)
    9th doctor (gets everyone together)
    donna (she dies as she’s in the tardis with the master and the evil statues turn the tardis,donna, and the evil master to stone)
    jack and his crew

    8th 9th 10th 11th doctors back
    maybe bring back new mechanoids to fight the daleks.Maybe new tardis black coloured pillar and suspended in the air CGI

    also after the 50th anniversary have a new doctor companion and 13 episodes ,christmas special pt1 and new years special pt2 and maybe an easter special aswell to get the ratings back up.

    I’m not making any comment about the plot,( all eleven doctors perfectly possible ) but if there’s a scene set in a suburban house, I suggest filming in the one that stands where lime grove studios once stood.

    For the 50th Anniversary, I would like it if whilst the Doctor and his companion are in the TARDIS, Rose beams her way into the TARDIS and looking at the new interior.

    • Person

      August 22nd, 2012 - 9:22am

      I don’t think Rose should come back. Because, the Doctor has regenerated and it would be kinda rubbish. I know that the tenth Doctor regenerated and still had a thing for her, but I don’t think that would be the case for the 11th Doctor.

  • Doctor863

    July 20th, 2012 - 6:03pm

    The Ultimate dalek special with classic daleks coming from the progenitor. Davros recreated, river song included and 10 flashbacks from the doctors adventures involving the Daleks.

  • Christian Starling

    July 19th, 2012 - 10:54pm

    I cant see a Doctor Who 50th special without Liz Sladen… RIP Sarah Jane Smith!

    But almost defiantly it should include the Doctor finding out Sarah Jane died :'(

    • Don’t diss the Sonic!!!

      July 20th, 2012 - 1:02pm

      I agree that Liz should be in the 50th aniversary but I don’t think they would mention her because it would probably be to upseting for her family. As long as River Song is in it I would be happy.

  • the last doctor

    July 17th, 2012 - 7:30pm

    in the 50th anniversary I want to find out who the woman at the end of time and show us the time war where the 8th doctor needs his past self’s but to bring them and there companions back the are aged by the machine that dose it but he can’t do it on the first three doctors because it might kill them
    also susan, romana, come back and we find out about the doctors family and who Susan’s parents are

    • the astronaut of death

      July 17th, 2012 - 7:41pm

      well a lot of people think the woman at the end of time is the doctor’s mother

    • Don’t diss the Sonic!!!

      July 17th, 2012 - 10:15pm

      First of all, if River Song isn’t in the 50th aniversary i will be really annoyed. I’ve heard that the it will be five specials (not clarified), so if that is true then I would like some of the the Doctors greatest foes to chase him acrosss time and space (almost like “Day of the Moon” or the master eppisode but better)but obviously we would only see the most interesting/important bits and some of the aliens would have to be the kind of aliens that would do that kind of thing except only in that time period (such as the sontarens). Maybe The Doctor discovers that they are attacking some of his closest and powerful friends and allies (such as River Song and Captain Jack).Some of the other villians that i would like them to add or ones they would obviuosly add would be: The Silence,The Daleks,The Cybermen,old foes before 2005,army people from Demons Run, Madame Kovarian,a new bounty hunter alien,the silurians, weeping angels, maybe any good new villians in series 7 and so on.All of the aliens that i would list would either have a big part in it or are at least noticed. Some of the places i would like them to go to or places they would obviously go to would be: obviously earth, a sort of bounty hunter black market place on an alien planet and planets that some of his foes come from such as the sontarens and the cybermen from Mondas. Some of his historic friends or allies that i would like them to attack are Agatha Christie, Vincent Van Goth and Winston Churchill. Maybe the end of series 7 starts The Doctors journy across time and space because The Silence are controling everyone and is trying to stop The Doctor from reaching trensalor and answer the question; sometimes he could be seperated from the Tardis and he will ahve to find another way to get to places and maybe Trensalor can move through time, space and other dimensions and The Doctor cqan folow it to the same time stream but he can hardly ever controle where he lands and he obviously can’t just go in and out of tardis as quick as lighting untill he gets to the place. I also don’t wont to find out his name untill the last ever epsidoe and maybe it isn’t his name the question is about, like if we asked River Song who she is and she was still keeping the Doctors death a secret then she could say “I’m the woman who killed the Doctor” or something like that.A real clever twist because if we knew his name the show can’t be called “Doctor Who” and it would compeletely ruin the concept of the show. Finally, i don;t want to know any of the things we never found out like who was that woman in “The End of Time” (i think his mother) or anything else except from the question and anything new they add that will lead up to the end of the specials or whatever it will be because they wont be of any importance to the plot and it would waste precious time of filming.

  • sonny

    July 16th, 2012 - 6:27pm

    I think we should find out the doctors name!!!

    • the astronaut of death

      July 16th, 2012 - 6:36pm

      sorry but i totaly disigry with you there

      i dont think we should not find out the doctor’s name because i we find it out it will ruin the consept of doctor who because if we find out his name the title doctor who would be ruind we should find out his name only on the final episdoe

    • Dalek Strategist

      July 17th, 2012 - 4:16am

      I think that’s a secret that the Doctor should take to his grave

    • Person

      August 22nd, 2012 - 9:24am

      We’re gonna find it out soon anyway, you know, ‘the question that should never be answered’ thing.

  • Dalek Strategist

    July 16th, 2012 - 3:34pm

    What I want:
    *Daleks and/or a new design of Cybermen
    *return of the Valeyard
    *4th, 7th, and 8th Doctors
    *return to Totter’s Lane
    *return of at least 3 former companions
    *River Song

  • Matt9982

    July 16th, 2012 - 7:10am

    The 50th would have to be BIG. It would be nice to see Rose and the Duplicate Doctor to return and Jack. The episode would need to have the return of past Doctors. (the actors that have sadly died πŸ™ would have to be covered for in the script) If not all the Doctors could return it would be great to have an episode where Paul Mcgan, Christopher Eccelston, David Tennant and Matt Smiths Doctors could feature.

    • timelord273

      July 16th, 2012 - 3:30pm

      christophor eccleston said that he wouldn’t go back to Doctor Who πŸ™

  • anonamus

    July 15th, 2012 - 4:36pm

    I know!
    A big army out to get the Doctor, led by the master with Daleks, cyberman, sontarons who turn out to be behind the silence, and rose, Martha, jack and river come back to help him and all the other doctors come back aswell.

  • Whovian100

    July 14th, 2012 - 10:25pm

    Personally I don’t want the Show to go TOO BIG on the 50th! I know it’s a BIG MOMENT in WHO’S History but perhaps it’s BEST not to go too, you know, OVER THE TOP! (If you know what I mean)!

    • Whovian100

      July 14th, 2012 - 10:27pm

      Also I don’t want everything to be REVEALED in the 50th. that way there are still Ongoing Plots that can be revealed after the 50th!

    • Dr who

      August 1st, 2012 - 12:13pm

      No I think we should resolve all in the 50th and start a fresh story arc or get rid of story arcs and just bring back the old enemies

    • Callan

      August 11th, 2012 - 7:42pm

      That last comment is spot on. The ongoing storylines these days are just ridiculous.

    July 14th, 2012 - 10:07pm

    I really wish they would create a Doctor Who, where the tenth and eleventh Doctor team up. It’d be the best episode ever! For sure!

  • Doctor Who DVD Collector

    July 14th, 2012 - 9:11pm

    I would love the BBC to partner up with Big Finish to create a boxset of audio CDs called
    ‘THE TIME WAR’. That would be a best seller for BF!

    • itdalek

      July 15th, 2012 - 3:26pm

      it will have to have the 8th doctor in the time war if they did a story on the time war and have cannot regenerate into the 9th in the story as he never did

    • Anony-mouse

      November 10th, 2012 - 4:16am

      What? The Eighth Doctor regenerated before, during, or after the time war. They are not the same Doctor.

  • Commander Strax

    July 14th, 2012 - 6:46pm

    if any one wants the master to return i have a theory:
    As we see in the drs wife, the tardis is a person.Does this mean that other time lords had tardis people,like the master? Maybe the he found out during his exscape from the time war about this.he could have said to her when he dies in the time war to use the DNA from the master that was gave to her when he was regerating to make a new master.
    And that could happen.

  • Jasmine Tunnel

    July 8th, 2012 - 6:20pm

    Bring back Rose and The Duplicate Half Human Doctor as like people in the background but a lot and have Martha and Jack Harkness as background characters cause none of them would realise the new doctor and then they could all find out at the end of the episode. Just an idea.

  • the astronaut of death

    July 8th, 2012 - 5:45pm

    i wonder if the 11th doctor will regenerate in the 50th annnerversery

  • ella key

    July 7th, 2012 - 11:39pm

    christopher eccleston david tennant and matt smith should have a episode where they are all trying to save the world from every enemy ever known.

    • Stormageddon II

      October 4th, 2012 - 10:54am

      Too big, eccleston isn’t coming back, and I think there are another 42 years of Doctor Who History before 2005.

  • david coff

    July 7th, 2012 - 10:48am

    I think they should have the surviving classic doctors Tom Baker,Peter Davison,Colin Baker and Sylvester Mccoy guest star in the anniversary series but not playing the doctor. Just have them playing different characters in different episodes. After all they are all TV actors of wide experience.Plus a multi doctor story featuring all the new series doctors including Mc gann would be cool.

  • doctor who

    July 6th, 2012 - 4:11pm

    i ment ideas that could happe and the confirmed storylines eg asylum of the daleks

  • Andrew

    July 6th, 2012 - 12:33pm

    I’m just saying, what if the question was a a series of words that said by the Doctor could release an ultimate evil, something from the Doctor’s darkest and deepest fears. What if the Doctor was wrong to arrange his death/survival at Lake Silenco? And the Silence are simply guardians of the peace and the Doctor was wrong? I think that many fans want to see a darker side of the Doctor and they have been wanting that for a while now. I want to see the Doctor be given a good send off with a mysteriously storyline. They should bring the Valeyard back as they’ve had him lying around on the dusty shelf of “Enemies to bring back… Eventually.” Tell me what you think of what I said. K thanks.

  • The Watcher

    July 6th, 2012 - 2:20am

    I like the idea of bringing back the Valyard. I would also like to see Romana again. Maybe even having the Doctor have to find the key to time again, but all the pieces are hidden in new shapes.

  • doctor who

    July 3rd, 2012 - 4:14pm

    series 7 and 50th anniverary idea

    episode one.the doctor must face every dalek ever

    episode two.he goes to egypt or a spaceship

    episode three.faces the recokner in wild west

    episode four.faces black cubes

    episode five.faces weeping angels in new york and amy and rory go

    christmas companion and the first question story arc progresses

    episode six.unknown

    episode seven.unknown

    episode eight unknown

    episode nine.victorian times.silurians.see doctor who tv.maybe episode eight

    episode ten.unknown

    episode eleven.phantom of the hex.a cliffhanger when the silence have been watching the doctor and discover he is alive

    episode twelve and thirteen are the big which the doctor goes to the fields of trenzalore and the silence return now knowing he survived lake silencio.a battle rises and the question is answered.the story contiues as we discover why the doctor’s identity is dangerous and what the fall of the eleventh is and see the old doctor’s return and the time lords as well as learning who the silents are.they could be with omega and they are manipulating the timelines.we learn the true plan and the time war is seen and the doctor regenrates and maybe the question was dangerous because it would create the birth of the valeyard

    • Steve Cade

      July 5th, 2012 - 1:03pm

      Great starting idea, but one can wander and add too much in sci-fi-land.
      The 50th needs a “full Doctor” story (all incarnations) Obviously the Daleks (cybermen have grown a little weak now) I agree the silence may be involved. But take in some of the other stories from past Who. Chase through time (after all it is a time travelling show) Different types of Dalek. You should try and meld together the TV 21 comic with the series, that means getting permission??? to have a Gold Emperor Dalek. (those familiar with Altered Vistas will know how good this character is)
      On a sour note, it may be a problem getting Pertwee and Troughton lookalikes………but what about casting one of Troughtons sons??

      Otherwise, good luck with an apparently almost impossible problem.

    • crazy guy

      July 5th, 2012 - 5:07pm

      these are not exactly ideas because some of these alreday been confimed

    • Stormageddon II

      You also need a Hartnell look alike, they got one for the five doctors but he died not long after the episode was broadcast.

    • ParadigmDalek

      June 30th, 2012 - 5:19am

      If anything, the Valeyard should return. Sutekh and Omega were both thought to be destroyed, so they could easily leave them there, but we never really learned what happened to the Valeyard.

    • the TARDIS

      July 1st, 2012 - 7:29pm

      Well, Omega was just left trapped in an antimatter universe, so who knows what happened to him afterwards.

    • ParadigmDalek

      July 2nd, 2012 - 5:22am

      Yes, but still, we never did know what happened to the Valeyard, and it’s pretty certain he wouldn’t have fought in the Time War. Maybe he’ll show up in Series 7

  • daleksec123
