OK, please be warned, this is a massive... I mean...





MASSIVE SPOILER...



The thing is, if this is true, once this gets out, there's going to be very little that can be done to contain it. So it will ruin the 'surprise' for fans and followers of the series.



Follow this link by your own accord and your own risk. It will give away a MAJOR surprise for a future Doctor Who special though.





Arrow Sun Article (I can't even type the title of the article without giving it all away)

If you're in the UK at least, it'll be almost impossible to avoid it. As soon as anything Who related appears (usually in the Sun), if it's of any significance, I can guarantee someone will tell me about it.

The news is big - and if done well (assuming it IS done at all), I personally would love it.

White Text

I've been re-watching all the Hornblower stuff recently - and he is just so cool and natural in it. Proper dashing (as my girlfriend is always pointing out when he's on screen). I've also recently been listening to the audiobooks from the Imperial War Musuem archives, where actual soldiers accounts are read. He does that brilliantly too. Everything he does he does it well.

And although I'd say that No.6 is probably my favourite BF Doctor - McGann is just so good.

As I said, I don't think there is going to any way of containing it. In fact, if turns out to be untrue, it is now going to be a huge disappointment for fans now expecting to see it.

I think, if true, once the production realizes the cat is out of the bag, they will just openly publicize it for marketing purposes.

And if it is indeed true, this is just fantastic! I would definitely be looking forward to it!

Louis

another switch on the idea of 'doctor-lite episodes' - doctor-lite by having a different doctor :-)

Simple - above your reply text box where is says 'Font Color - 'Default' is showing.
Click on the arrow and select 'white'

Make sure you then type within the two (font color=white)-(/font) section - like this:-

If this is the case, then I no longer feel quite as embarrassed about the seeing Paul McGann again in Doctor Who question I had originally posed to Steven Moffat on the first day of Gallifrey 2008 and then nervously asked Paul Cornell two days later on podshock. As a fanboy, I must say this is a dream come true.

White text:

But I would rather see a new full series with McGann and Sheridan Smith. Who says the new series can't go back in the Doctor's personal history and show us some stories? It would be a chance to do all kinds of hints to things in the future that we know about but the Doctor doesn't.

I know, I know, it wouldn't be good for the casual viewers - too fanwanky.

So sue me!

Seconded! And with Moffat soon to be at helm, we can hope that the Timey Wimey nature of the concept will be acceptable to the great unwashed. We live in hope.

I know that a lot of you disapprove of this type of rumour but at least it keeps the programme in the public eye and makes people talk about it rather than letting it just fade away in its year off. Look at how excited we all are all of a sudden.
If only just one of the rumours that have emerged about the specials over the last few days is true that I will be one exited bunny!

Good point. Just like back in the day, JNT would welcome the rumours such as the one of the next actor to play the Doctor might be female just to get the programme back in the press and the 'talk of the town' -- it generates excitement and interest.

If it is please can we see (white text) A regeneration. We don't need to see Eccleston appear just use stock footage from his time as the doctor.

Oh and I think L would be better than C if he has to have someone with him and plus L fits better at that time. I like C but I find L much funnier, as has been said L is like R but much much better.

This is incredible if it turns out to be in fact true. White text follows:

I do wish he would have at least slightly longer locks than I have seen him in as late. I have to agree with Louis though that even with short hair it will be cool just to see him reprise the roll. And hey, Peter Davidson had al LOT less hair than his previous incarnation as the Doctor (mostly on top) in Time Crash albeit explained away by Ten.

If I am not mistaken it was The Sun that reported in early 2006 that the theme was being redone for the series by a different musician (other than Murray Gold, I can't recall the name now off hand, though I did contact said musician at the time and received no reply from him).
