    Well that was lovely.

    You could really tell Tenant wasn't acting during the last part. "You were MY Doctor."

    Well he was MY Doctor too. I started with Baker, watched all of his, and when Davison came around, he made such a refreshing change that he really became MY Doctor.

    Nothing against any other Doctor, it's just that Davison hit a nerve with me, and some of his melancholy at the harshness of the universe rubbed off on me. No longer was the Doctor all smiling teeth and cockyness - now he was contemplative and when things went wrong he felt sorry. He felt the universe, he didn't just skip over it.

    This was a great episode to see. Still the whole "Oh, you're a fan" thing was a bit meta-humorish, as was the "You've changed the desktop theme", but funny nonetheless.

    Now the question is, when they re-air the final episode of last season, will THIS be the end, or will it be the other end, without Davison? I think it should be THIS end, but hey, that's not likely is it?

    Last year's injected itself at the right time. This one inserted itself into something we've already seen, and I'm thinking they shouldn't have done that.

    They should have started with the collision with the Titanic, and then have Davison appear and try to rectify the situation. That would have kept continuity up better.

    But hey, who's complaining? I loved it.

    Sean.

    Five, "To days to come."
    Ten, "All my love to long ago."

    You know that had an air of formality about it. Could that be a Timelord greeting/farewell?

    If not can they retcon it into that? WinkBig Grin

    I agree that this gets even better on the second viewing, the first viewing is pure fanwank (sorry for being crude) and the next time (and time after that) you can enjoy what you know is there. It's great how many magic moments Moffat has crammed in, my wife isn't a fan of the classic series and she loved it too.

    I reckon this mini-episode could be a good one to introduce New-Who fans to the classic series.

    Pretty cool. I agree the continuity seems a little out of whack with the Titanic crash AFTER Davison leaves, but this is such a wonderful moment for the new series, that I'm willing to look past that.

    How could it have been better, apart from getting a full multi-Doctor episode or two during the regular series? Imagine the roles are reversed, and Tennant ends up in Davison's classic series Tardis...oh my!

    Wow. Just for a quick episode, they could bring back Tegan, Nyssa and even Adric.

    I know I'd be in fan heaven!

    Maybe the whole time crash affair didn't actually last for any amount of time to an outside observer and the Children in Need version was from the perspective of the Doctor? Sorry, it's the best I can come up with. Mr. Green

    I'm also four pages into the Outpost Gallifrey thread on the "beard joke" and it's killing me. Big Grin

    I really did love the special. If I had to pick who MY Doctor would be, it would probably be Tom Baker (shown on WTTW in Chicago in the early- to mid-80s) but I really enjoyed Davison and grew to love Pertwee as time went on.

    I'm going "Full Circle" and putting my avatar back to what it was when I first joined. :)

    Yes! I like that. I would love to see the classic Tardis used again.

    P.S. It is of course possible that this message is a trap. If it is I can deal with it. P.P.S. I'm leaving this note in case I can't!

    After finding it and reading only the first page I'm amused to be so thoroughly reminded how people can willingly miss the point so completely, so they can continue to live in the world they pretend daily exists - the one without those icky things that make them squirm when they think about them. :-)

    "It could just mean he has a wife. The Doctor was asking about one thing and the Doctor said 'oh, and there's this other thing'"

    Like he'd say "No he hasn't got a beard... well, a three-car garage..."

    LOL!

    (would have replied right after this showed, but the hotel I was at in London wanted the equivalent of $38/day for internet access)

    I loved this. I simply teared up when 10 said, "you were MY Doctor." But then started overthinking it. I'm sure I've seen David in interviews saying Tom Baker was his Doctor. Perhaps I haven't remembered that accurately.

    AFTER I finished overthinking the situation, my next thought was - It's Not Enough! I want MORE, please!

    Now, I'll have to acquire it for my collection!

    (by the way, compared to the other CiN specials this WAS brilliant! The Hotel Babylon seemed to fall like deadweight on the audience and Robin Hood's special left much to be desired as well. WAY too much Spice Girls from LA, not enough John Barrowman, and way too much Fearne for me!)

    To bad they can't do an episode with Paul McGann, Peter Davidson, Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant with the name of the Four Doctors. That would at least complete a set of 'Doctor' titles.
    The One Doctor (Big Finish)
    The Two Doctors
    The Three Doctors
    The Four Doctors
    and The Five Doctors

    Yea, I know it's not going to happen, I just thought it was an amusing idea.

    Wouldn't it be great if on Nov 23rd 2008, a Seven Doctor (Tennant, Eccleston, McGann, McCoy, Baker C, Davison, Baker T)special could be broadcast for the 45th Aniversary. Even if the older members were non-doctor characters, or voice-only parts. It could be a tribute to Verity, JNT and all the others who have departed recently but were integral parts of the Who universe.

    On the 10TH Doctor At The BBC CD he definitely said he started watching in the days of Tom Baker - but also goes onto mention that he stayed with and also enjoyed Doctor # 5.

    I think Big Finish has the best chance of pulling off "The Four Doctors"; and they did something akin to this with Zagreus, as they had four 'Doctors' involved in the project.
