Yes. Why would there be a 5 year anniversary? There wouldn't thats too weird. We'll hve fingers crossed for the 10th of the new show though. Heres hoping.

Eccleston? Probably not. Tennant? I think he would. Lil Matty Smith? He'd love it. Capaldi? Obviously. Hurt? No his story is done. 10th anniversary? It's a possibility. Remember people that peoples articles are opinions and not facts. My opinion is that it's got a good chance of happening. Why do people naysay when patience will tell in time. Blimey!

The 96 mcgann movie was a joint BBC/american effort and viewer wise was extremely successful. In this country it got over 9 million tuning in and got very good viewing figures in America too. From that standpoint it was a success. However, reports at the time suggested that a lot of American viewers did not get the storyline and thought it was unnecessarily complex and thats why it wasn't picked up for a series. I was there reading every scrap of text on the subject and the huge majority agreed mcgann was excellent. Those are the facts man.

I think the Cybermen and Daleks returning once a season is about right. The Daleks weren't too heavily featured in the 50th but they had to be there and fitting they were there when the Doctor was ending his regeneration cycle. I'd like a Dalek story every season and a Cybermen story every other year alternating with another classic monster, Either ice warrior's, Master, I'd lobe to see the Tractators return or the Terileptils.

I've found the state of fandom to be genuinely shocking in some quarters. I often wonder if some fans should actually be fans as they seem to despise the show. I don't know why they watch at all. It is true that it's a small vocal minority and all the nice ones don't often comment at all. I think we should make more of an effort to spread joy.

Bring it back in years to come but leave it undetectable to other races. There's no need for them to start another time war and im sure they've learned a valuable lesson. Let them go back to observing and non-intervention. We could just see them occasionally when a story is good enough to feature them and like the classic series did, have them pop up every once in a while. Now there's nothing wrong with that.

I was 12 when I watched season 22 and loved it. I'll always love those stories and colins performance and Doctor. Nothing post ironic about that. Just fond childhood memories and I'll always love it. Coat and all. It wasn't colourful to appeal to kids, it was the mid eighties. Everything looked like a rainbow had been sick on it. Just watch music videos from that time. Its the era it was filmed in. Since the revival its been one drab suit after another. Can't wait for Capaldi but boring blue suit. However sharp, there's not much imagination there........ 80's Cybermen!!!!!! The best!!!!!

I agree totally. Whilst most fans adhere to the rules and to good manners, some people seem to relish in what is ultimately bullying with the protection of an anonymous user name. These people need to ask themselves is it really in the spirit of the Doctor or the morals and messages of the show itself? Because I don't think it is.

Mark Warren was excellent in Love and Monsters. I found his character as a simple, honest(ish), everyman who was charming, non-complicated, bloke down the pub feel and wonderfully different from the usual Dr Who character. The scene near the end when he realises what happened to his mam, shot with the young Elton waving goodbye to her still chokes me to watch even now. Even just thinking about it makes me emotional, and I'm a big gruff 41 year old. It's a testament to Mark Warrens acting skill. He's very underrated and its a very unpopular story. However, I like it. Its portrayal of Dr who fans meeting up in a basement every week/month I think is affectionate and funny. As in the mid nineties myself and a few other mismatched and lonely people used to meet in a spare room of the town library and talk about the Doctor. This story will always be close to my heart because of it. (None of us ended up on Peter Kayes arse cheek though. Thankfully). Maybe some people hate the story because of that. In fact I'm going to watch it again right now.

I'd rather want to see Bethesda do a Dr Who game. They're the ones behind the massive open world games of The Elder Scrolls and Fallout series. Even explore the Tardis as well as use it as a fast travel device. Anyone who's played Skyrim would love a dr who game. Massive. Loads of locations. Hundreds of hours of game play.

The eighth doctor should have ended the time war. It would have made so much sense and not had convoluted the timeline. It cant have been Eccleston as he'd just regenerated as seen when he sees his reflection in his debut episode. Moffat says that he couldn't see mcganns 8th doctor fighting in the time war, hovever, the way that moffat had wrote him was that he had changed since the movie and if you've got listened to the big finish adventures getting progressively darker. Then it is easy to imagine that it was paul mcganns doctor that fought and (thought he'd) ended the time war. It would have been great to see him in the scenes with the 10th and 11th doctors and the moment when all 3 tried to save gallifrey. I loved john hurts war doctor and would love to see more of him but I would have preferred mcgann taking the role. Moffat dropped the ball there. Mcganns adventures in audio could have had a massive arc leading to "the moment". But hey, we now have a film legend as a past doctor. Ups and downs eh?

Exactly. There's only a certain amount of facial combinations, admittedly that means millions but also means that some people look like other people. They have resemblances or are the spitting image of people. Thats why I work with a woman who is the spitting image of the young tom baker. It's weird but there you go.
