This would be absolutely terrible unless a charity special which is non-canon. When you try to combine two different TV worlds you end up with disasters like Dimensions in Time!

I really hope Billy Hanshaw gets properly credited in the end titles, and he really deserves to be paid as some bits are identical.

@Stradiwhovius I hated the TARDIS doors for the fact that they opened outwards at the end of the title sequence, not inwards like in the programme!

Hmm, can't believe many fans would get this… far too much for 1 episode, especially considering the box set will be out a couple of months later!

I'm assuming he will do the average of 3 series, which is the perfect time to develop a Doctor and be loved and missed, without ruining your career!

The more I read about this series, the more it seems like they're trying to do the Sixth Doctor... but done well! More like his audio adventures than first series.

I may be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure I read in an interview with Steven Moffat in DWM that The Three Doctors was never really planned as a 10 year anniversary special, and it's just gained that reputation since.

@The Outer Space K9 Very true, and I would have thought that 2-parters would be cheaper as you don't need brand new sets for the second part.

@Planet of the Deaf I think that the cliffhanger to Episode 6 is, quite possibly, the most moving moment of Classic Who… Incredible acting, and something that you can only get away with because it's a parallel universe!


Also HAVOC are on top form throughout!

Fantastic article - Inferno is one of my favourite stories ever, and I agree about what you said about the others. The only one of your choices that I feel is padded is The War Games, which I think would have made an even stronger 8-parter. Having said this, the last 2 episodes are phenomenal!

@Planet of the Deaf @The Mind Probe @ShameOnSM I think 6 only shows some darker elements during The Trial of a Time Lord, particularly after (SPOILER) Peri's death, and during the "That's what it takes to be really corrupt" speech.

Reply

@Planet of the Deaf @The Mind Probe @ShameOnSM Very true, which raises the question of if any of the Doctors have really been dark, or at least consistently dark… I suppose they all have a different scale of darkness, and I'd say Eccleston is the darkest and Troughton is the least dark.

@ShameOnSM Similarly the 1st Doctor which some consider "dark" I just consider "grumpy", and yet he had a really childish playful side. I think the only "dark" Doctors are Hurt, Eccleston, and late McCoy.

@ShameOnSM @The Mind Probe I was never convinced that the 6th Doctor was really "dark", just really "angry", and that changed over time. Whereas Eccleston seemed a really hurt and damaged Doctor.

I just hope they don't do a Christian Bale Batman level of darkness!

Great article! I'm hoping he's about the same level of darkness as Eccleston, who could get angry with a companion (such as at Rose in Father's Day) but still have a laugh and a smile (Everybody lives!)

@Richy Woo Not necessarily - I've heard they get to see some scripts and filming of the new series, so can tailor their characterisation of the Doctor better.

The story itself is sweet, but my main issue is it didn't have to be the Cybermen at all… it could have been any other monster (preferably a new one), as it didn't add anything to the Cybermen, and instead made them come across as weak.
