If Eccleston is in it too that would be amazing , such a shame our Northern Dr. only stayed for 1 series.

A little off topic but doesn't Eccleston voice an NPC or two in SWTOR ? One of them is on imperial Taris , he is the guy who thinks the place is bugged and sends you on a mission , if it's not him then his voice is very close so must also be from Salford

K-9 should be in it , please?

Haha, "lots of planets have a North!"

K-9 was in the Sarah Jane chronicles I believe. So it's possible he will be apart of the 50th. Don't know. It would be hard to cram everything into one show I would imagine.

Back in my teenage years in the 80's it was a Friday sometime between 10:30 and 11pm. I was watching the tonight show (I think) and was bored so I just took hold of the handle of the channel changer knob and gave it a sharp spin. I think remotes where just coming out and we didn't have one. Anyway, it landed on PBS and there was some older guy laughing that looked like he was in a spaceship. I thought "WTH is this?' so I watched it a little longer, Then I saw some guy with a long scarf, a woman, and some robotic dog shooting things and really had no clue what was gong on. The guy with the scarf and the woman jumped through some picture that was part of a alien landscape after turning on some sort of gun device. That was how I was introduced to Doctor Who with the story Nightmare of Eden.

Every weeknight between 10:30 and 11 PBS would air one half hour episode. Since internet wasn't really around I had to find information about the show at the local bookstore. I still have a beat-up magazine that talks about Peter Davison leaving and Colin Baker taking his place.

Over the years after I was able to see all of the other Doctors. Even trudged through the 6th which I never liked and the first part of the 7th until he came into his own. I have most of the DVD's that have been released so far from the classic series.

I do like what they have done since it came back though I do wish the companions would be treated better when they leave. Donna is my favorite companion and the way she was treated when she left....... I did almost stop watching it though because they kept centering around earth and the human race. Also the 'get of of jail free card'... I mean the sonic screwdriver. The classic series did not do that. But then 'Blink' happened and I have not thought about not watching it again.

I have had no trouble dealing with any of the regenerations since I am used to it. I do feel that part of Matt Smiths departure might be that he hated seeing Amy and Rory go, but that's just speculation. What I understand about Clara is that the Victorian Clara was actually supposed to be the companion. I would have liked that better. The Clara seems a little too 'gung-ho' and I don't see much (well any) room for character growth.

I am very much looking forward to the 50th anniversary episode though I thought Moffet was going to do a season long celebration and not just one episode like I have been hearing the last couple of months.

Moffat had stated it is not about nostalgia and reunions but that it is about moving forward into the future of the series.

With the way Eccleston left the series I can't imagine him coming back. Which is part of the reason I believe john hurt is there. Having Tennant and Smith there without Eccleston there certainly points to the idea of john hurt filling that void. Lots of speculation about john hurt being the doctor that created The Moment and Time locked Gallifrey effectively ending the Time lords for good.

Seeing the chronicles of the 8th doctor in the magazines and comics makes him am incredibly dark and twisted character to deal with.

Last weekend I caught 2 episodes of the first of the "new" series with Christopher Eccleston (sp?) I believe. It was pretty decent.

But he also said don't believe everything you hear. I doubt K-9 will be apart of it, that was just a response to another post.

Also, I got my Doctor Who 50th party planned. Well, we started to plan it. Should be fun.
