    Three to go.
    There seem to be more and more hints that the Doctor will not leave the next special unscathed. That something iireversible will happen to him that can only happen because we know that the tenth Doctor's days are almost over. I read in the Radio Times a while back that at some point he might be losing the TARDIS for a time. Is it that or something more terrible, I wonder?

    Not that this is really important but I found this on Digital Spy about who is going to be knocking four time in the upcoming specials (Carmen's prophecy in "Planet of the Dead")

    Arrow Who is knocking up the Doctor?

    I don't know what it means yet but we'll find out in December.

    We have a name for one of the guest on the 2-part Christmas special - JUNE WHITFIELD

    Digital spy reports that she will be in the Christmas special - but not much more info is available. Here's the story:

    Arrow June Whitfield confirmed for "Who" special

    Also mentioned in the article is David Harewood (currently in "Robin Hood") who will appear as well.

    _____________________________________________________

    Now for some conjecture:

    Neil Wilkes from Digital Spy has a clip from an interview with John Barrowman about a possible return to "Doctor Who" but John denys it adamantly. I don't know what to think about this but here is the link:

    Arrow John Barrowman talks "Who" return

    I'm not sure what's going but I'm thinking of the line "thou doth protest too much" (paraphrased from "Hamlet").

    Hey, I could be wrong - I've been wrong before. Wink

    I don't know why but I predict the Reapers will be involved and somehow someway Joan Redfern will be reunited with a part of the Doctor that separates from the Doctor and begins life as John Smith and that life we saw in HUMAN NATURE will be his life and his end, while the rest of the Doctor regenerates into the 11th.

    I also think and I might have posted this already: and could be completely wrong: I think Gallifrey will present itself somehow in the last two...can't wait for it to all be over so we can move on to the 11th Doctor and leave behind all the trash...sorry could not resist that. It's just how I feel.

    Latest rumour. One I hope is not true.

    Meet The Doctor's Mum

    Also, I'm not sure why they're wheeling out SJ & Son (and maybe Captain Jack) again. Didn't we do all this in the last finale?

    Good God, she's playing Leela! (NEW AD joke; or maybe Leela was his mum?). Anyway does that mean that Luke is to appear also? I bet they say the aliens that made Luke made him out of the Doctor's DNA! And I the finale that really wasn't JOURNEY'S END was done just to make us all believe that that was going to be where the 10th Doctor regenerates. This NEW 10th Doctor regenerates is supposed to be the real thing so everyone has to be back, hopefully to witness the REAL thing this time. Oh and in between we got the NEXT DOCTOR, yet another FAKE regeneration type thingie. Gimmicky. Never trust gimmicky gadgets...apparently this show is one of those things now.

    You know I never really agree with your attitude on current Who but you are 100% correct on that statement. What was the real purpose of last seasonís finale?!?!

    Last season's finale purpose was: to get you to watch and apparently it did it's job and purpose was fulfilled. It has high ratings. But ratings do not equate IMO to quality.

    We've got a new casting for "Doctor Who".

    The Sun reports that Timothy Dalton (best known for his stint as James Bond) will appear in as a baddie in ine of the last episodes.

    How much truth is in this - I don't know but here is the link from the sun:

    Arrow Licensed to exterminate


    EDIT: Well look at that! My post went to the wrong place. It should be after the "Hoo on Who" (Dr. Hoo) post. That's the first time it's happened to me.

    For the bit about the Doctor's Mum... I just finished re-watching the McGann movie with the DVD info text on and when he first regenerates and is walking down the hospital corridor wrapped in a sheet, the info text mentions that in one of the original drafts of the script the Doctor was to see a phantom of his mother! Now, we know Russell is a fan of the 96 movie to an extent, could he be borrowing that idea from one of the discarded scripts and bringing it to fruition? Discuss!

    Good God ! Can it get any worse. My prediction is that Leela is the DOctor's mum...oh no wait, that's LUNGBARROW but anyway wasn't Timmy Dalton once to play the Doctor's father ?!!!! That's what is going to happen. We're going to meet the Doctor's MUm, his father who is a baddie or the Master, and his brother who is probably the Master.

    As for RTD, it's no secret hes out of ideas at least to me so he's probably mining LUNGBARROW and the TV MOVIE.

    I don't know about anyone else but I wonder or I feel the Five Specials idea was rather a big waste of time and a very bad idea. To go off the air like that and come back with these lame and old, unoriginal ideas and to pass them off to people who have no idea hat they are unoriginal...is just so WRONG!

    I've done some rechecking on some of my previous posts and found out something I didn't notice before.

    On the thread "Companion for the 11th Doctor?" I had posted the possibility of Lindsay Duncan being a possible companion. There is some truth to that but for the 10th Doctor in "The Waters of Mars". She will be playing the character Adelaide in the upcoming special.

    Here is a link to the story that I posted then.
    Casting news: Lindsay Duncan to star in second Doctor Who special of 2009

    What about the return of Jenny? Any rumours of that happening? I'd love to see the Doctors daughter again.
