Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Script Has ALL Eleven Doctors
I Have recently become a fan of the show Dr. Who over the last couple of months at the advise of some friends who told me that I needed to watch this show that it would be something I liked. I have heard from many people about the show over the years, and I had seen some of the older episodes pre the 2005 relaunch, and to be honest I had never been very impressed with the series.
But there is something to say about what has been done with this new series which now enters it’s very special 50th anniversary show. While they do a special every year, and they seem to always pay tribute to the show’s origins some how. This year it will be something very special as wired.com has reported the following.
As of today Steven Moffat has confirmed that he is completing a script that will feature the current Doctor, Matt Smith, facing a foe so great that he will need assistance from all ten of the previous TARDIS inhabitants. That’s right, rumors say Eccleston is in!!! The producers have gotten agreements from all living actors who have ever played the Doctor; Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, and Matt Smith. With some studio special effects they have even resurrected William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, and Jon Pertwee.
This is awesome news for anyone who’s a fan of the series, and like myself a fan of the current show mostly. It’s going to be very near to see actors “Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, and Matt Smith” all on the screen together.
I think it was mostly the charisma of Eccleston that won me over, and made me a fan early on in the first season, and I was very disappointed to find out he only did one season before being replaced by David Tennant who to his credit really did a fine job in the role himself, and only took about 3 or 4 episodes for me to accept him as the new Doctor, and again when he was replaced I was a bit disappointed. But that’s the thing about the show. As a fan one must get used to the change of the Doctor, and accept it, and move on. This show can last forever literally since they can simply regenerate the doctor into a new body after a few seasons with a main actor.
Having the older actors on the show again should be a lot of fun! I Don’t know how they are going to pull this off but this sounds like a really epic way to celebrate the 50th birthday of the Doctor.
Now I’ve heard the rumblings that Matt Smith wants to leave the show soon due to the overload of work he’s having to put in to make the show. He’s been a lot of fun as the Doctor in a comedic way, and has slowly grown on me. They all have brought their own quality, and charisma to the show, and while many many fans miss David Tennant who seems to be the main fan favorite of the new 3 Doctors it’s Christopher Eccleston who I’m most excited to see return for the special. I hope this isn’t some cheesy scene on the computer where they flash scenes from past episodes tho. That would be lame. I can’t wait to see the rest of this season, and see what happens, and if Matt Smith makes it all the way past it, and comes back.
Either way make sure you don’t miss this season when it picks back up.
